Potato Green Chile and Cheese Casserole was derived from imagination - made partly from corn flakes, which provides a crunchy top that adds that extra special touch that mac and cheese has. We also can't forget the green chiles, which plays to spicy cravings.
My son is very selective in what he will eat and almost every meal is met with a challenge, even if it's something he had eaten the day before with no problem. Needless to say I stick to the very basics with him and am constantly looking for ways to expand his diet. A couple of weeks ago he FINALLY took to eating a popsicle, and enjoyed it so much because it was on a stick. Of course this got my mind racing with ideas of all the things I could put on a stick and I decided the next thing would be a corn dog or cheese bomb. He was bound to like one or the other, righ?
Carne asada which means "grilled meat" is one of the most popular dishes in Mexican cuisine. At a young age, I came to realize that I was unable to step outside on the weekends within a Mexican community without catching a whiff of some delicious grilled meat. For me, that delightful scent represents family and friends getting together for parties, sporting events, or just to celebrating life, Latino-style, for no reason at all. In anticipation of these occasions, my family would marinate the meat a day in advance, guaranteeing a tasty afternoon.
