If BBQ gurus Pat and Gina Neely were to make a Mexican burrito, it would probably look a lot like this dish. The filling is a simple mixture of ground beef, onion, corn, and bottled barbecue sauce. Instead of a salsa or guacamole topping, a heaping spoonful of crunchy coleslaw is placed atop the meat.
Although cheese isn't on the ingredient list, a sprinkling of cheddar cheese is a welcome addition. To look at the recipe, read more

The other day DearSugar asked me to check out a recipe she was considering making. While the dish — chicken lettuce wraps with Asian flavors — sounded delicious, the recipe was unclear and difficult to follow.
Later that same day, I found myself grubbing on Betelnut's lettuce wraps thinking, I need to find a better recipe! Luckily, I've found two recipes. They are both straight-forward and delectable. One involves more ingredients, making it a little more complicated. Check out the two and choose which appetizer recipe suits your needs when you read more
With their creamy flesh and delicate color, avocados are an incredibly versatile fruit. Not only are they wonderful in classic Mexican dishes, they also taste delicious when mixed with fresh ingredients like tangy feta cheese and burst-in-your-mouth grape tomatoes. Served on top of a bed of lettuce, and a warmed tortilla, this chunky salad is both flavorful and filling. To take a look at the recipe, read more
Buffalo wings are one of my guilty pleasure bar foods; I love to order them when I'm out drinking beers with the buddies. Unfortunately, they're not the most figure friendly food, but this recipe for a healthy version also hits the spot. Making these fiery buffalo chicken wraps at home allows you to control the quality of ingredients. The classic blue cheese sauce gets made over with reduced fat mayo and nonfat yogurt. Stuff the wrap with a good amount of lettuce, celery, and tomatoes to ensure you get your daily dose of veggies. To make these tasty wraps for dinner tonight, just read more
The best part of leftover grilled tuna is that it's so versatile. You can stir into pasta (hot or cold), it tastes great in an omelet, or as crabcake style tunacakes. However, one of my favorite things to do with it is to make it into a cold salad. The salad can be served on bread, toast, crackers or in a wrap. For a quick and easy way to use up last night's leftovers, read more
Oliver the pug is almost one, so I'm planning a fabulous little birthday party. The soirée will be happening in his favorite park, so planning a menu that is portable and picnic-like is important. Store bought treats like chips and dips, cheese and crackers, and olives and pickles will supplement an easy, make ahead meal. BLT's get a fresh twist with the addition of turkey, arugula, and ranch dressing. A black bean, rice, and tomato salad pairs nicely and travels well. A peanut butter carrot cake will decadently finish the people food menu. For the recipes to these scrumptious snacks, read more
I love recipes that require a distinctive homemade sauce. Homemade dressings and sauces can add pizzazz to store bought ingredients and make a simple meal seem slow cooked and difficult. Taking the time to make a quick sauce adds tremendous flavor for a markedly home cooked feel. The homemade peanut sauce slathered over the chicken in this wrap consists of friendly, basic pantry components so no need to worry about buying a bunch of expensive vinegars and over priced oils. Pair your sauce with stir fried chicken and vegetables and you'll have a delicious ethnically inspired dinner in no time flat. To glance through the recipe, read more
