Do you love delicious and unique cocktails? We take one of the most popular cocktails to the next level by using Hennessy cognac to create a nontraditional delicious homemade margarita, not once but twice!
The first recipe is a twist on the classic margarita.
The second cocktail is a Frozen Strawberry Hennessy Margaritas (also called – A Red Hennessy Slushie).
Here's a pro tip when making enchiladas: To keep the tortillas from becoming too soggy, fry them in a bit of hot oil prior to filling and rolling them. This technique creates kind of a barrier so that the tortillas don't soak up too much of the sauce and therefore start to break down.
This chicken tortilla soup is packed full with the Tex-Mex flavors of red enchilada sauce, black beans, cumin, green chiles, and topped off with crispy tortilla strips. What’s even better than how delicious this soup tastes, is how easy and fast it is to make!
It’s one of the best soups to make because there are so many substitutions that you can use. As long as you have chicken and Mexican seasonings, you pretty much can make a version of this soup!
Huevos Rancheros is the Spanish name for rancher’s eggs.
It is a very simple breakfast egg dish that is served in a classic mid morning fare on Mexican farms.
This easy and tasty dish consists of a corn tortilla topped with a fried egg, salsa verde or pico de gallo, crumbled cotija cheese, and drizzled with sour cream. It is often served with beans, rice, and fresh chopped cilantro.
These tacos are loaded with marinated shrimp, crumbled bacon, avocado, chopped onion, cilantro, and a creamy chipotle sauce, folded into a toasted cheese corn tortilla. Super yummy!
