Shrimp and Guacamole Tostada

I don’t always make Mexican food at home, because Bryan’s families are from El Salvador. We can easily eat those similar tasty food from Bryan’s mom. But when I make “Mexican” food, they are usually not very authentic and very different. This tostada is the perfect example. When I saw this recipe in Bev Cooks, I hesitated for a moment. Tostada traditionally is fried and it definitely does not top with guacamole. Because of the beautiful looking pictures and tasty combination, I decided to give it a try. It turned out to be amazing. The tortilla was crispy and great with melting cheese. The guacamole was creamy. Shrimps were well seasoned and meaty. These tostadas are good as main dish and good to serve with salad or veggies.

Fish Tacos

666B1198When I say fish taco, you probably would think of the fried crispy fish on a corn tortilla with some lettuce. This fish taco is not the fried kind, but it is absolutely delicious and satisfying. I love the hint of smokiness from the Spanish paprika. The slightly tangy coleslaw, the flaky cod and the creamy avocado were the perfect combination. Juicy fish and crunchy coleslaw. Excellent healthy meal. Enjoy!

Juicy Chicken Tacos

I don’t celebrate Cinco de Mayo, but I like Mexican food. When I mention tacos, Bryan would always think of King Taco (Mexican restaurant in LA). Bryan and my in-laws have been to King Taco for years. No doubt their tacos are amazing delicious! They are simple and authentic. But it is a bit far from where Bryan and I live. I think this juicy chicken tacos can help our addiction for a while. It is also simple, but pack with flavors and very easy to make.

Chicken and Cherry Tomato Quesadillas

Quesadilla is so easy to make, and it can be changed up with different ingredients. It is a perfect dinner during weeknight. This recipe was inspired by a college friend who made a quesadilla with cherry tomatoes and parsley. Instead of using parsley, I used cilantro. The flavor of cilantro is much stronger. The cherry tomatoes gave some sweetness and freshness to the cheesy quesadilla. It was delicious! Don’t forget the salsa, sour cream and guacamole!
