Quick & Easy Taco Seasoning Mix

by Texas Homesteader ~ 

Back in ‘the day‘ I always kept several packets of taco seasoning in my pantry for those days I used it when I was making Carnitas Tacos. Or Pulled-Pork Enchiladas. Or maybe Taco Soup. Or… well anything Tex-Mex flavored.

RancherMan & I enjoy lots of Tex-Mex food, y’all. You know, ’cause that’s how we roll in Texas!

But that was before I started on this simple life journey. I’ve since learned that it’s beyond easy to whip up these spice mixes for myself. Come see…

It's super easy to mix up this taco seasoning mix in minutes. Pour it into a repurposed jar, slap a label on it and BOOM! Never buy those tiny disposable foil packets of taco seasoning again! #TexasHomesteader #Taco #Seasoning #TexMex #SaveMoney #EcoFriendly

Lazy Cook’s Chile Relleno Casserole Cups

by Texas Homesteader ~

A family member had a bumper crop of different peppers last year. So she seeded several various kinds of peppers & plunked ’em all in the freezer to share with me. But now I’m trying to put them all to good use.

RancherMan & I both enjoy Tex-Mex food and we absolutely love chili rellanos. But (and I can’t emphasize this enough, y’all) 

I’m a lazy cook! 

So I thought it would be great if I could use my silicone muffin pan to make a quick-cooking chile relleno casserole into single-serve portions.

I gave it a try & RancherMan absolutely raved at this lazy-cook’s version of chili relleno. I must admit, it was absolutely delicious. And such an easy, ‘no fried’ version of one of our favorites. Come see what I did.

I love chile relleno, but it's more work in the kitchen than I want. Come see my lazy cook's version of chile relleno, baked into single-serve cups! #TexasHomesteader
