As promised, I have another way to use the sauce that makes the best Al Pastor tacos. Taquitos are something I grew up on and have loved all my life. They are basically rolled tacos made with corn tortillas and filled with anything from ground beef to chicken to pork to steak; really you can fill them with anything that tastes good. And the fun part is that they are the best finger food made for dipping. Usually I dip them in guacamole or salsa but today I am going with green chile dip. Pork is the traditional meat when making Al Pastor and I’m going to take a small pork roast and cook it low and slow until it will easily pull apart with 2 forks. It may not be the traditional way of making Al Pastor pork but it’s just might just be the tastiest to roll up inside a tortilla yet. There’s not much else to say, except you gotta try these!

Zucchini and/or green chile make a great summer side dish when you slice them into bite size strips to resemble french fries. Dipped in a buttermilk batter and rolled in panko bread crumbs give them a crispy outer texture that tastes so good. French fries and ketchup may go hand in hand, however zucchini and chile fries taste especially good dipped in salsa or green chile dip. You can’t go wrong there. Imagine these fries alongside a big juicy burger or a grilled chicken sandwich. I can assure you they truly taste scrumptious together!

Happy Cinco de Mayo all! I love any excuse to eat Mexican food. Recently when Joe and I were in Kauai we walked over to a little restaurant called Monico’s Taqueria where we shared a plate of Steak Nachos. It was a simple nacho platter with spicy marinated steak and melted cheese with Chile de Arbol salsa on the side. After 2 weeks of Hawaiian food I was having withdrawal pangs for Mexican food and for me this was heaven on a plate. The arbol salsa goes perfectly with steak but I wanted more options. So I added some more toppings which I hope you will enjoy. Continue reading
