Nacho Fries

Nacho Fries

Can you really go wrong with Nacho fries? The answer is no. These decadent treat is made with homemade french fries and topped with lots of Cacique goodness, queso quesadilla and crema con sal. Do I need to say more?

Amongst my friends…. I’m the nacho girl. I love EVERYTHING about nachos, especially the melted cheese and crema. Well, for the big game this Saturday I will be serving Nacho Fries for all to dig into. I may have to hog them all for myself, but I guess I wouldn’t be much of a hostess if I did that.  I could pretend I made them (more…)

Game Time And Pretzel S’mores

Super easy pretzel s'mores at alway a touchdown at the big game. I bought all the ingredients at Walmart... my one stop shop.

I’m really looking for a reason to have Pretzel S’mores. So let me act like I’m into this game stuff. The countdown is on! Only a handful of days until the big game is upon us. Yes, I’m hosting my very own party this year. I know most of the ruckus should be about the game, but here in my house and with my friends …. It’s all about the food. I guess I’m gonna be BUSY clanking pots and pans in the kitchen for the (more…)

Growing up we were never allowed to take down any of the Christmas decorations until Three Kings Day/Dia De Los Reyes (January 6th)… the tail end of the 12 days of Christmas. My grandfather would tell us we had to wait for the Three Kings to arrive bearing gifts. I would look forward to the day by placing my shoes outside my front door to be filled with a gift, and in the evening we would cut into the rosca.  This year will be no different in the fact that the decorations will stay up till Jan.6th, I will make a rosca de reyes with a few toy babies in the middle, and call a few friends over to celebrate Dia de Los Reyes with me and my family. Usually the highlight of the evening is cutting the rosca to see who gets the baby (who ever gets a baby in their slice of rosca has to make a tamale dinner on Feb. 2nd for the group), but it can’t fully be enjoyed without a cup of hot chocolate. Chocolate caliente hecho con agua is my ideal type of hot chocolate. It is made with a water base that really allows you to fully taste the divine Mexican chocolate, and at the very end milk is added, but not a lot in comparison to the water. It’s really special and should be made anytime a cold day drops it’s temperatures down and you want warm comfort in a cup.

I decided this Three Kings Day I am going to go simple and make it easy on myself by just serving this chocolate and rosca.  I made this recipe really easy for you too….. watch the video below to see exactly how to make it.

Ingredients for chocolate caliente hecho con agua:

  • 7 – cups water
  • 2 – cinnamon sticks
  • 1 – teaspoon vanilla
  • 3 – Mexican chocolate tablets (I used Abuelita)
  • 2 – cans evaporated milk
