Good Thursday to all…well I’ve been busy with my grandbaby and haven’t blogged in awhile. so thought I’d drop a few lines…
The pic above is my mexicana casserole. As you can tell it is my lunch break sitting by the computer…hahahaha!!!

I was strolling through walmart and found a dry packet seasoning for chimichurri for mexican casserole…hmmmmm..I thought I should give it a try and I loved the taste it gave to the casserole. so, I believe I will buy more in the future for a fast enchilada sauce when I don’t have time to rehydrate chiles.

Mexicana casserole:

1 lb hamburger meat
i onion chopped finely
4 roma tomatoes chopped finely
2 or 3 serrano peppers chopped finely
1 lime
1 bag of chips( I prefer chile and lime chips made by United deli)
Cheddar cheese ( shredded)
1 8 oz. can of tomato sauce
1 packet of chimmichurri dry seasoning for mexican casseroles
1 1/2 cups of water


Brown hamburger meat, set aside…
Combine onion, tomatoes, serrano peppers and juice of 1 lime in a bowl, set aside..
Combine the chimmichurri packet and tomato sauce and water in a bowl. Set aside.

In a casserole dish, layer the chips, hamburger, pico de gallo, sauce and cheese. Keep layering until all is gone…
Pop in the oven at 350 degrees for about an hour or so!

I hope enjoy this recipe..I did! I topped my serving with shredded lettuce, surachi hot sauce and drizzle of honey! Heaven!!!
I know you are thinking honey drizzled on a mexican casserole, but don’t knock it until you’ve tried it!!! When I was a child, growing up in Dalhart, Texas, there was a mexican restaurant called Trinidad and Della’s! They had the best mexican food in the world…yum, anyway I always ordered the cheese enchiladas with beans and rice…this is where I experienced the honey drizzle…and from that day forward..I have to get my drizzle on!!!!!

I am wishing all a great day and Peace out my friends….


Good Day to all!

I have been so busy the last few weeks, I have not shared lately, but this week-end, we had a BBQ for my Sweet Man-Gary!!

This is Joeseph grillin for the party…we had pork-chops, chicken, hamburgers, dove breasts…

Since it was the wild feast game party this week-end, not only did we have dove breast, but my friend Sherrye brought her famous enchiladas made with deer meat and roasted green chiles on top…..And inside, I had made some brisket chile for tostados, along with a rotel cheese dip….my friend Pollyanna brought her famous beans and rice…and needless to say, we had so much food that out of 25 people, everyone was able to take home a plate or two…you gotta love a backyard party…cuz..when there is food..there is lots of love and conversation!!!!

And not to mention the bikes parked in my front yard….this is Tim’s bike…wow, isn’t it a hottie!!!!

I hope everyone is having a nice day….it is suppose to be 80 degrees here in Amarillo,TX…..love me some spring days! I’ve planted my lettuce and radishes, and they are beginning to peek up through the dirt….hello..Lettuce!!! hahaha…just a crazy kinds redhead that talks to her plants….Good Day!
