I’ve got a fun new vegetarian dinner recipe today for you guys to try…

…mushroom “carnitas!” ♡

Yep, this classic Mexican dish has gone vegetarian (also naturally vegan and gluten-free!) thanks to a simple swap of shredded mushrooms in place of the meat.  And while these plant-based “carnitas” can really be made with just about any type of mushrooms, we love making them in our house with king oyster mushrooms because they can be shredded to take on a shockingly similar texture and meaty flavor of traditional pork carnitas.  My vegetarian husband totally did a double take the first time I served him a plate and couldn’t believe they weren’t made of meat!

Simply shred the mushrooms, toss them with your favorite marinade, and roast them up in the oven to crispy, juicy, delicious perfection.  Then these mushroom “carnitas” will be ready to serve in tacos, burritos, quesadillas, burrito bowls, chilaquiles, enchiladas, salads, or whatever sounds good!

They’re seriously so fun to make, and I promise that even the meat-eaters in your life won’t miss the pork with this dish.  Let’s make some!

Homemade Tortilla Chips

My deep and undying love for chips and salsa has been well-documented here on the blog over the past decade with dozens of recipes for my favorite dips and salsas.  But many of you have been reminding me lately that there has been a major hole in our recipe archives up until now for the equally important other half of the equation…

…a recipe for how to make tortilla chips! ♡

Many of you have noticed that I have gotten in the habit of making homemade tortilla chips ever since we moved to Barcelona.  And while I will be the first to admit that I somewhat begrudgingly got in the habit of making tortilla chips from scratch out of sheer necessity since they are difficult to find here (never again will I take those aisles full of multiple brands of tortilla chips for granted in the States), I’ve honestly gotten so hooked on them now that they are just a given in our house!

If you’ve ever had freshly-made tortilla chips in a restaurant or made them at home, I’m sure you know the difference that I’m talking about.  There is always a distinct and satisfying crunch that comes with homemade tortilla chips.  And when made with standard corn tortillas, I love that homemade chips are sturdy and strong enough to scoop up even the thickest buffalo chicken dip or pico de gallo or any number of salsas without breaking.  When making your chips homemade, you also of course have the option to use whatever color and/or thickness of corn tortillas you prefer.  And best of all, in my opinion, you can sprinkle them with flaky sea salt which always adds the most irresistible crunch.

To be sure, making your own chips homemade does require a bit of extra time.  But they are super easy to make with just 3 ingredients.  And, in my opinion, they are always deliciously worth the effort.

So put on a good kitchen playlist, maybe make yourself a margarita or mocktail to sip while we cook, and let’s make some homemade corn tortillas together!
