What is Chilaquiles?

Chilaquiles originated in Mexico. The word Chilaquiles originated from the Aztecs, and it means chilis and greens. It is usually eaten at breakfast or lunch and has been used to help hangovers.

There are many variations of this dish. For example, in central Mexico, the tortilla chips are supposed to be crispy. Shortly after the chilaquiles are done cooking, all the ingredients except the salsa are poured on the tortilla chips. The salsa isn’t added to the dish until it is about to be served. In Guadalajara, cazuelas, which is flavored stock, are kept simmering with the Chilaquiles to form a thick stew similar to polenta.

The How, When, Where and Why About Tea.

Tea is an infusion of dried herbs, bark, leaves or fruit that is used for medicinal or personal purposes.

I have four words for you: I don’t drink coffee. (Gasp!) Yeah, I know. I’m one of the few Americans who doesn’t rely on ground coffee beans mixed with water, milk, and spices. Instead, I rely on an infusion of dried fruit to wake me up or put me asleep. Ever since I was a little kid, I have enjoyed drinking tea, not coffee. To me, coffee has a weird flavor. I’ve drunk coffee a few times, but only because I poured more than a teaspoon of sugar in it. Speaking of tea, one of my favorite tea companies is Yogi. Yogi started in 1984 after a group of yoga students  attempted to brew the tea that their yoga teacher would brew for them. Yogi started with three flavors, now they have over 60 flavors, and they sell in grocery stores across America, Canada, Europe, and Japan.

Too busy to read the whole post? Jump to Recipe

I am obsessed with a chocolate cake that also tastes identical to the best dessert known to man. Campfire s’mores plus chocolate cake equals ambrosial goodness. I have no idea why this dessert has not been on the covers of more food magazines. This delectable dessert is chewy, and it tastes like fudge. Why doesn’t Food Network or Bón Appetite cook up this cake but add tahini or orange zest? P.S. You can do that.

One thing that I immensely enjoy about starting a new year is creating a list of places you want to visit during that year and then at the end of the year, you are able to look back to see where you went and identify if you visited where you planned on traveling to.

“Christmas Eve is coming soon, now you dear old man..” I can not believe that Christmas is tomorrow.  Seriously? I’m so excited for Christmas. You know why? We’ll be able to celebrate the birth of God’s own son, visit with family, and eat delicious food. Speaking of food, this recipe is the perfect way to disguise a gluten-free dish. It also helps with introducing family and friends to the realm of gluten-free.

These Christmas cookies are delectable, chewy, and soft right out of the oven. Besides, what’s Christmas without Christmas cookies? They may be called Snow Topped Mountains, Dirty Snowballs, Crackled Cookies, or Russian tea cakes, but we can all agree on one thing. That these cookies are addicting! I dare you to eat just one.
