Papas con Carne de Cachete | Mexican Style Meat and Potatoes with Beef Cheek

Many thanks to Rumba Meats and #WeAllGrow Latina Network for sponsoring this post; recipe and opinions are my own.

With all of the buzz surrounding the world soccer tournaments, and more importantly, how equipo México is still in it to win it, I find myself inspired to make delicious platillos for the next watch party. Since we have to adapt to different time zones for the global games I must also be conscious of my fiesta menu for some of these early morning matches. Fortunately, my great grandma Angie handed down her recipe for papas con carne, which is timeless and can be served morning, noon, or night. That’s the great thing about Mexican breakfast – it knows no time constraints so regardless of when you’re watching the games, this dish can work. Read More…

Chilaquiles with Beef Chorizo and Spicy Chipotle Crema

Chilaquiles Rojos | Lola's Cocina

These Chilaquiles with Beef Chorizo and Spicy Chipotle Crema are an ode to my madre. She is the inspiration for many of the recipes I share here on Lola’s Cocina and the reason I developed a love of cooking at the ripe old age of eight. On one of my recent visits to California, she taught me how to make her homemade chilaquiles. I’ve taken her recipe and added my own sazón to it using Cacique® products.

You can find my full recipe (and many other tasty recipes!) on the Cacique® #GoAutentico blog. Check it out and treat someone special to a meal inspired by my beloved México lindo y querido.

Aunt Stella’s Stuffed Bell Peppers with Meat and Baked Beans

Aunt Stella's Famous Stuffed Bell Peppers with Meat and Baked Beans

Stuffed bell peppers always remind me of my aunt Stella because they’re one of her signature dishes. Her recipe combines both savory (ground beef) and sweet (baked beans) components. Bell peppers are packed with vitamin C and when they’re stuffed with this hearty mixture and served with a warm side of fluffy white rice, you have yourself a well-balanced meal that incorporates starch, protein, and vegetables.

Beef Short Ribs


My great grandma Angie’s beef short rib recipe includes a perfect mix of protein, veggies, and starch – everything necessary for a hearty one-pot meal. All you have to do is add your ingredients to a roasting pan, and let your oven do the work.

With a meal this simple, it’s no wonder this recipe has been passed down four generations. I learned it from my great aunt Stella, who serves the ribs and veggies alongside freshly steamed white rice. Mmmmmm! Read More…
