Need an amazing dessert for your Cinco de Mayo celebration next week? Look no further! This Tequila Key Lime Pie is one of the best we've ever had! The crust has a hint of cinnamon and the key lime custard is kicked up with a shot of tequila. It was so good. I gave away half of this pie to a friend, and we gobbled up the remaining half.

This pie can be made ahead of time and refrigerated for a couple of days. If you do make it ahead of time, don't make the whipped cream until you are ready to serve the pie.

This Salsa Verde Chicken and Rice Bake is a new favorite in our house. It was super simple to make and tasted SO good. We ate this for dinner and leftover for lunch the next day. It was just as good reheated. I love this recipe because there is no cream of anything soup in it. Simply make some rice, whisk up a salsa verde sour cream sauce, toss together with chicken and cheese and bake. Simple! It is on the table in under 30 minutes. 

I used instant white rice in this dish. If you want to use instant brown rice, that will work too. Just make sure to follow the directions and the water to rice measurements on the box. They are different from instant white rice.

I adapted this recipe from one of our all-time favorite chicken recipes - Lemon BBQ Chicken. We refer to that recipe as "Fire Chicken" because the flames flare up when you put the chicken on the grill if you don't take the chicken out of the marinade for a few minutes before cooking.

This version is perfect for Cinco de Mayo next week! It is packed full of amazing flavor! Lime, oregano, garlic, onion, paprika and cumin. YUM! We let the chicken hang out in the marinade overnight. The chicken is always tender and super juicy! We actually made this two days in a row. It is great as the main dish or chopped up in a burrito or salad.

Cinco de Mayo is next week. One of my favorite "holidays"! We always celebrate with a fiesta!

This year we are having a few people over for a Cinco de Mayo party instead of going out. I am making this delicious Taquito-lada Casserole. It is a quick and easy taquito enchilada casserole.

I used these yummy frozen José Olé Steak and Cheese Taquitos as the base of the casserole. I fell in love with the José Olé Steak and Cheese Taquitos at our Super Bowl party. We served a variety of José Olé snacks and made a yummy Spicy Chipotle Ranch dipping sauce. I stuffed myself silly with them. They were SO good!


José Olé has several flavors of taquitos:

Steak and Cheese Taquitos Coated in Spicy Nacho Cheese Flavor 
 Chicken Taquitos Coated with Buffalo Ranch Flavor  
 Steak Taquitos Coated in Chipotle BBQ Flavor 
 Chicken Taquitos Corn Tortillas 
Shredded Steak Taquitos Corn Tortillas 
Chicken and Cheese Taquitos Flour Tortillas 
 Steak and Cheese Taquitos Flour Tortillas

I chose the Steak and Cheese Taquitos because I think they are super delicious, but any of the varieties will work in this recipe.

This casserole couldn't be any easier. Just bake the taquitos covered in enchilada sauce and top with cheese. We topped the Taquito-ladas with some lettuce, tomatoes, green onions, olives and sour cream. 

To round out the celebration we served the Taquito-ladas with some margaritas, taco rice, chips and salsa. It was a fun and easy fiesta!

Mothers Day American Kobe Beef and Kurobuta Ham Dinner


Mother's Day is right around the corner, May 10th. Have you thought about what you are getting her?   Flowers, perfume, chocolate? Why not an amazing American Kobe Beef and Kurobuta Ham Dinner?? Snake River Farms offers a great gift boxes for Mom. You can either invite Mom over and prepare the steak and ham for her or ship it directly to Mom so she can enjoy a fabulous meal on Mother's Day!

Snake River Farms and Double R Ranch are part of Agri Beef Co., a family owned and operated business dedicated to producing the highest quality beef and pork in the United States. Founded in 1968 by Robert Rebholtz, Sr., Agri Beef started as a ranching and feeding operation and grown to incorporate every step of the beef lifecycle which includes ranching, cattle feeding, animal nutrition, beef processing, marketing and sales. This comprehensive approach ensures the products that arrive at your door are the best available. Snake River Farms and Double R Ranch are served in the best restaurants in the world including The French Laundry, Per Se, CUT and Craft Steak to name a few.


Snake River Farms sent me the Super Mom package to sample.
It included:

2 (6oz) American Kobe Filet Mignon
1 (3.5 lb)Kurbota 1/2 Boneless Deli Ham
1 jar Espresso Brava Sea Salt

It arrived in a styrofoam container packed in dry ice.

The Kurobata Ham was AMAZING!
So tender and juicy.

The ham is a boneless deli-style version for fast and easy cutting. They use a special curing process using a signature recipe and a final smoke over real hardwood.

Kurobuta, or “black hog,” is the Japanese term for the Berkshire breed. The ham from Snake River Farms is 100% Berkshire bread. It is deep in color and streaked with a fine marbling that makes it exceptionally sweet, juicy and tender. 

I baked the ham at 325 for 20 minutes per pound.
I let it rest a few minutes before slicing.
It was so good! Seriously, one of the best hams we've ever eaten.
We will be ordering another one for Christmas!

Each Snake River Farms filet mignon is hand-cut, hand-trimmed and perfectly portioned.
The Steak Grade is SRF Black – that is higher than USDA Prime.

We grilled the steaks, but you can also pan sear them and finish them off in the oven.

We topped the steaks with the Espresso Brava Sea Salt.
Perfection!!

We served the steaks with our favorite potato casserole and some lima beans.
The steaks were so tender. We used a butter knife to cut them! 
I could have actually just used my fork. They were tat tender.

We couldn't leave out the ham. We put some of the ham on a biscuit. 
We were stuffed! SO good!


Snake River Farms is offering a set of special bundles for Mothers Day. This bundle, the "Super Mom", includes 2 American Kobe Ribeye Filets, a 1/2 boneless Kurobuta ham and an Espresso Brava Sea Salt. This bundle retails for $146, and is on sale for Mothers Day for $99.
