Before the only you spot now, I had Chipotle in there too, but wow, it was simply method too loads of a tongue twister. I am the truth is delivery to get annoyed with myself that for the life of me I simply can’t write-up a simple, non confusing recipe title. I mean, they happen, but in basic terms occasionally. Oh well, I simply can’t depart something out. I simply can’t.
Sooo, how about some recent flavors and colourful Mexican meals to enliven your Wednesday?
Like don’t you simply desire to hit the seashore with me and my pineapple up there? Cause I do. If you learn my submit on Sunday, you’d understand that I stated I was freezing. Well, yeah, I am nonetheless freezing and it’s snowing again. Welcome to past due February in Colorado. Just three further months of the chilly and snow after which it’s mud season. Oh my gosh, sounds so fun, right. Oh yeah…
I am the truth is OK with all of the chilly climate although simply due to the fact while it will get truly chilly like this, it simply makes me assume of tropical warm places… and well, reputedly truly freaking delicious Mexican food.
With pineapple, simply due to the fact you know, loopy me sold TEN on the grocery shop the different week. <–Can you say, Tieghan loves pineapples? YUP.
So you may see why I rather love these fowl tingas… with pineapple. And underneath all of it sits a crispy all cheese quesadilla (so form of like a quesadilla tostada)…with um, tequila lime pickled jalapeño’s, and nicely plenty of cajita cheese, simply due to the fact life ought to be further fun in this Wednesday!
You see, I obviously got a bit carried away with this recipe. This appears to occur loads with me, but I form of like it. This method I get to devour truly smart food. Score.
Oh, and did I point out here is considered one of these loopy primary and loopy primary crockpot recipes? I mean, I tried to get the phrase crockpot into the identify too, nevertheless it simply wasn’t gonna happen.
You can the truth is make this within the crockpot OR within the oven. Both methods end up simply the same. The crockpot is simply smart and convenient though. Gotta love a delicious warm meal that’s prepared for you while you get home. Plus, the home smells AMAZING all day long. I beloved strolling in from the chilly in basic terms to scent tropical Mexican cooking away. It truly is the very greatest strategy to deal with these past due February days.
If you’re wondering, tinga simply skill a smoky tomato founded mostly Mexican sauce. It may be made with chicken, pork or red meat and is usually served over rice or in a tortilla. I did my tinga in basic terms a bit differently, but it’s the correct combo of spicy and sweet, and it’s made even higher by the crispy cheese quesadilla sitting underneath it.
By the way, making a quesadilla right into a tostada is the best. You get to stuff so loads cheese into your dilla and everything remains so smart and crisp. On upper of that, you get to pile on the toppings such as you are going to a tostada. Epic.
And these pickled jalapeño’s? I truly simply introduced these simply due to the fact one – I love spicy jalapeño’s and limes, and NULL – I truly sense like every of our Wednesdays might maybe use a bit go with me up. Thinking these are simply the correct last contact to assist us by way of the hump.
