Slow-Cooked Spicy Beef Tacos ((Part 1 of 3 “Tasty Meals for Tired Travelers”))

If you have been following me on Instagram or Facebook, you may have caught a glimpse of our recent Spring Break family ski trip to Sipapu. We LOVE the family friendly nature of that fun, compact resort. It has a little something for everyone :: perfect for the little learning ones, challenging enough for the “men-folk” boys ((and “boy-folk” men too, haha)) who are breaking limits & barriers with every turn & great for cautious mommas who need to see their chicks at least every 14 minutes.

But the one restaurant I have yet to discuss is Iguana Lounge. Continue reading

It used to be Chips & salsa AND Diet Dr. Peppers from Sonic, but I gave up the DDP addiction 10 months ago ((and it was SO hard to do — I am NEVER going back!!)). Anyway, about the chips and salsa… Continue reading

Spicy Salsa ((really spicy))

I LOVE chips and salsa! It is one of my top 3 favorite foods ((next to almond cake with warm buttercream icing and fried chicken with homemade ranch))! I also love making my own salsa. It is so easy and so obviously superior to store bought. If you haven’t already seen them, you should take a second and check out my 2 salsa recipes already shared on Food for a Year.
