Chickpea Jalapeño Tuna Salad

If there is one salad that remains constant in my life that would have to be my famous chickpea tuna salad.  It’s my go-to quick, no-cook, full-on lunch that I have been making throughout the years.  One thing is for sure.  Every time I make my tuna salad, I tweak the ingredients and make it better.

The one meal I never skimp on is breakfast.  Every morning, I must have a full-on spread to start my routine.  After all, it is the first meal that sets the vibe for the rest of my busy day and it is also the most important meal, as my mom would say.

My favorite time of the year is here!  Although the season hasn’t quite changed from summer to fall completely, we are already in full fall mode at my house.  With the air conditioner still on, I preheated my oven and baked my heart off.  First on the fall baking menu is pan de muerto, of course!

One of the greatest characteristics about Mexican food is that there is hardly any waste.  Full meals have been made with minimal ingredients but they are so delicious, inexpensive and hearty that they become family favorites.  These types of dishes are cherished for a lifetime and passed on through generations. They are so special, they are cooked or baked strictly for holidays and celebrations.

The warm weather is slowly making its way out of Southern California and this makes me so excited to start cooking those warm, comfort dishes that make the fall season so special.  One of those comfort dishes is my chipotle mushroom chili.  It is so special, I decided to submit it to Sprouts Farmers Market Simply Organic #ChooseMyChili challenge.

If you’ve been following my blog, you’ve seen how much I love Flatout Flatbread.  For a few years now, I’ve been experimenting in the kitchen and expanding my imagination to bring you recipes with all the different products from Flatout.  From Mexican pizza to gaznates to dulce de leche sandwiches, I can always find a new way to enjoy Flatout.    One of my favorite projects with Flatout Flatbread was attending  few food festivals on their behalf and spreading the word on the convenience, flavor and versatility of this great product.  Whether you have a busy and active style, watching your carb intake, or just want to enjoy a great lunch, Flatout Flatbread has all that and more.

Crispy Avocado Tacos with Jicama Carrot Slaw

September 14, 2017

When it comes to quick, time saving meals for lunch, I usually take leftovers.  Sometimes hummus and chips if I’m in a lunch rush and don’t want my mood to escalate to hangry in the middle of the work day.  You don’t want to deal with me in that level and I’m sure I’m doing my friends and family a huge favor when I don’t skip a meal.  It gets ugly.

Chipotle Pumpkin Enchiladas Stuffed with Vegetables

September is always a confusing month to me.  I see the Halloween decorations at the store but it’s 100°F as soon as I step outside.  I’ve been wearing shorts in September but I see no signs of sweater weather.  Pumpkin spice is everywhere including the candles in my home.  I apologetically admit to that as I summon the cooler weather with a strike of a match.
