Easy Mexican Style Street Taco’s!!

📷: Pinterest

It’s 1am and I’m staving so I decided to give y’all my latest obsession! Mexican Style Street Taco’s! 

I’m a California girl which means I was raised on Mexican food; besides the beach and lack of winter, Mexican food is my third favorite thing I love most about Cali! 

Mexican Style Street Taco’s were an invention of my dad’s, #BestDadEver! My dad isn’t Mexican at all, he’s a 6’5″ white guy that channels his inner Mexican chef from time to time. My sister calls him Mexican Vanilla lol!!

This may also be one of the cheapest best tasting things you’ve eaten in a while!!

Left Over Pork Roast seasoned with Salt, Pepper and Garlic. 

One large white onion diced small.

Corn Tortillas 

Large can of refried beans.

Your choice of Mexican or Spanish rice. 

Lemon or Lime cut in wedges

Hot Sauce 

Cilontro aka Corriander chopped fine.

How To Make It:

Take the pork and chop it into small bite size pieces.

Put all of the pork into a skillet. Turn to medium heat. Add about half a cup of water to the meat. Season with a little more Salt, Pepper and Garlic powder. Stir continually.

Once the pork is heated add the onion and a little more water, so the meat stays moist and the onions will cook.

Open the can of beans. Put in a pot, mash them with a potato masher just until their mashed lol, (It’s my secret to canned beans.)

Put them on the stove with about a cup of water in them or half of the can. Cook them on low until they start to bubble. 

Start your rice!!!

When the onions become translate it’s ready!

Heat the tortillas as you serve them. You can’t preheat them, trust me!!

Take the tortilla (you might as well get two you’re going to need that second one!) Put the beans in first, than the pork, top with a little lemon and hot sauce and a dash of salt! 

Enjoy with family and friends!!

The Best Salad Recipe Ever!

image

Okay so for years I’ve had a major problem with Ambrosia! You might be asking yourself what in the heck is it and why would I want to eat it. Well one because its so easy to make its stupid and two because I’m pretty sure if you could taste heaven then it would taste like this salad!!!
I do need to add a side note, in way is this a healthy salad!

What You Need:
One can of pineapple chunks
One can of mandarin oranges
One tub of cool whip
One to two cups of seedless red grapes
Half a bag of coconut flakes
Half a bag of mini marshmallows

Large mixing bowl
Paper Towels
Mixing spoon
Strainer

How to make:
Strain all of the juice from the pineapple and mandarin oranges.
Take a paper towel and get them as dry as possible! (Trust me you want to do this).

Add the fruit to the bowl along with the coconut. Then add the Cool Whip and mini marshmallows. Fold together and try not to break the fruit.

After it’s all mixed together add your grapes (make sure those are also dry).
Once it’s all mixed together cover and chill for an hour or over night.

Bacon Greenbeans

Okay so since the WHO is trying to scare people into not eating pork and other red meat. I decited that an animal that’s been around for thousands of years are probably okay and if I die eating bacon that’ll been a tasty death, think about your headstone could say “Killed By Bacon”.

My mom apparently has been making these bacon greenbeans for a while now but just told me about them like a year ago. So now I’ve decited that these things are way to good not to share with the world!!!

~Bacon Greenbeans~
What you need:
Two cans of green beans
One pound of bacon
Salt and Pepper to taste

What to do:
Cut bacon into one inch pieces (they don’t have to be perfect). Cook until bacon is done.
Rinse green beans, put in saucepan with half a can of water.
Add bacon and two tablespoons of the bacon grease.
Bring up to a boil for about 10 minutes or until green beans are hot.
Salt and pepper to taste and enjoy!!
