Once upon a time when I used to eat meat… I loved picadillo. So much so I made a video singing about it (I recorded this in my bathroom). It was one of the things I missed when I decided to go meatless (never a second of regret). With the evolution of plant based ground meats I am now able to enjoy a hearty bowl of vegan picadillo with all the traditional flavors in tact. I hope you’ll try my recipe… it’s song worthy and ready to be your next meal!(more…)

Picadillo Sopes En Salsa Roja is a plant based fantasy! It’s exactly what every vegan and vegetarian Mexican food aficionado dreams about and I don’t say that lightly. Heck, even meat-eater would lose their yayas over them. So good, I can sing about my picadillo. The perfectly crisp fried sope is dipped in a homemade salsa roja, then filled with refried beans, plant-based picadillo con papas, and topped with queso fresco, and all the other condiments.(more…)
Cauliflower Mojo De Ajo is the vegetarian version to the legendary Puerto Nuevo dishes many of us Latinx grew up on. When I was a kid/teen my family would take road trips down to Rosarito for the weekend on many occasions. We would all pack into my uncle’s van and head south of the border for a little taste of Mexico on the beach. I have so many fond memories of that time spent with my family and the meals we shared.(more…)
We are currently experiencing COLD Los Angeles season, and by that I mean its a bit nippy outside. During this climate here on the west coast my mind naturally makes the transition to soup time. Everyday I’m whipping up a new bowl in my soup kitchen….some I share, some I don’t.(more…)
Wake up for the holiday season to a cranberry coffeecake with hibiscus glaze:
I’m low key crazy for coffeecake. I always have been. I remember my grandfather would give me $3 everyday to buy nutrition at school, and I would use a portion of that money to buy a piece of coffeecake without fail. That’s where my love of coffeecake began. Fast forward to the present day and the want of waking up to fresh coffeecake at home is strong, especially during the festive 12 days of Christmas.(more…)

Are you the type that loves to put together a little gathering all in the name of TACOS? I am!!
Or as I like to call them Taco Party night. I can celebrate tacos any night of the week ending in Y, and I got the perfect one for you. Grilled Calabacita Tacos are the easiest to prepare. Grilled zucchini halves are stuffed with Cacique Queso Fresco, which is milky, fresh and salty, with a crumbly and creamy texture. Then, they’re placed in a corn tortilla, topped with a corn, tomato, onion and roasted jalapeno relish and drizzled in Cacique Cilantro Lime Sour Cream. Do I have your attention yet? Give these delicious tacos a try while the warm weather lasts… you won’t be disappointed!(more…)
