Birthday’s are considered super important in my family; you are treated like a princess for the month, and you basically get to do whatever you want. I know most people don’t take them as seriously, but I love them. Last week was my sister’s birthday, and we have this tradition where I cook a meal for her of her liking. She gets to choose any cuisine she likes, and my job is to FIND THEM and MAKE THEM (get it? :P)
Anyway, so as you may have guessed my sister chose Mexican and here we are! I planned a whole meal for her with Mexican rice and beans, tacos and mango coconut water. I am a sucker for Mexican food and this rice and beans casserole might have been the best thing I have ever cooked. Filled with spices, flavours and aroma, this is a dish you that will leave you craving for more!
If you are not sure where to look for the salsa sauce, you can easily find it in any supermarket such as Carrefour, Mega Mart or Lulu; it’s usually under the “ethnic foods” section in these stores 😀 Two of my favourite brands are Cantina and Old El Paso ( find it here )
Also, most people make this recipe with black beans, but I hate the taste of black beans so I opted for kidney beans, but you can always use black beans if you like them better 😀 Remember you don’t have to find the same ingredients, you can always experiment and give it your own touch. If you don’t have paprika, opt for cayenne pepper or just swap cheddar cheese with mozzarella or monetary jack cheese!
That’s it for today, thanks for reading and make sure you sign up by email to stay updated about my latest posts (link below). I am super excited about the outfit coming in this week, and it’s not one to miss 😉
The thought of the day: What could be more important than a little something to eat?
