New Mexico Enchiladas

New Mexico Enchiladas

Last month at WZA in Miami, I got a chance to hang with Tommy Marquez on the @talkingelitefitness podcast. We talked all about food and shared some of our favorite home cooked meals. Tommy blew my mind with the version of enchiladas he grew up with called New Mexico Enchiladas. They are stacked, not rolled. The cherry on top of this recipe is that it gets topped off with a few fried eggs. I never would have thought to top enchiladas with fried eggs but now that I’ve done it, I don’t see myself going back to my old ways. There’s a code for ordering these delicious stacks. Here, I’ve recreated Tommy’s order, a 4 by 3. Translation: stack 4 tortillas high and topped with 3 eggs. I won’t be going back to rolled enchiladas anytime soon, and I’ll forever be topping them with crispy olive oil-fried Pete & Gerry's eggs!

If you don’t yet know the full story behind my love affair with my Ninja Foodi, here it is. I bought one last year in Madison, WI (on uber sale with 3 coupons!) so I could cook in my hotel room for Mat during the CrossFit Games. We had pulled pork tacos and juicy chicken thighs and all the things we love to eat at home, expect we were hundreds of miles away with daily turn-down service. WIN, WIN (WIN, WIN.. if you know what I mean 😉) I’m here now with the newest for @ninjakitchen Foodi, the DELUXE. It’s truly a one-pot-wonder. Only a handful of pantry ingredients and altogether 30 minutes to whip this dish up for the family. Enjoy some time cooking for the ones you love!


Hawaiian Roll Cinnybons

These hit my lips and the world stopped spinning for a half second. I swear. Not only are these simpleAF to make but the taste is real deal cinnamon roll without fusing with rising and rolling dough. This is the happy marriage of french toast and cinnamon rolls. Till death do us part! If you’re not afraid to get your hands a little dirty with some eggs, butter and sugar, this is the recipe for you. CROWD PLEASER!

We’re almost to the weekend and maybe you’re looking for an easy week night or something to entertain friends with this weekend...? Welp, this is one of my favorites for exactly that. Marinate it overnight and grill it up when the time is right! In our house we pretty much serve everything with white rice and a side veg. This is also great on a salad if salads are your thing. Meal prep it or prepare it for a hungry crowd, it’s sure to please.
