I am a food blogger and foodie influencer with a passion for cooking. Due to my dad’s job, I moved around most of my life. I was given a rare and valuable opportunity to live in diverse countries that not only allowed me to expand my awareness of other cultures, but also allowed me to grow and develop into someone with an unrelenting appreciation and insatiable fascination for food!

This Cheese Shrimp and Poblano Pepper with Salsa Verde is one of my mother’s delicacies. Most of her dishes include ingredients like salsa, cilantro, and poblanos. 1 pound large shrimp, skin off and deveined 1 tablespoon sazon 1 small yellow onion, diced 3 cloves garlic, minced 2-3 poblano peppers ½ cup sour cream ½ cup salsa verde ½ cup mozzarella Juice of ½ lime Roast the Poblano Peppers. At 400°F, roast the poblano peppers for 20 minutes, occasionally turning with tongs. Place the peppers in a bowl covered with a clean towel or a plate for 20 minutes extra. The skin will blister off the pepper so then take the skin off, cut the pepper on one side and take the seeds out! Wash under the sink to get some of those difficult seeds out. Leave the stem on. Place them on a paper towel. When dry, cut the pepper into slices. Season shrimp. In a bowl add the shrimp and season with sazon and salt. Make the Shrimp. In a large saucepan on medium-high heat, add the onion and sauté until soft, about 5 minutes. Add the garlic for 1 minute, until fragrant. Add the shrimp in a single later and cook until the edges turn pink, about 1 minute. Flip the shrimp and cook for another minute. Remove from heat and add the sour cream and salsa verde as well as the sliced poblano peppers. Bake the Shrimp. Add the shrimp mixture into an oven safe dish. Top with cheese and squeeze lime over the mixture. Bake in the oven, at 400°F until the cheese melts, about 3-5 minutes.

Are you a red salsa or green salsa type of person? This Tomatillo Poblano Sauce is my favorite salsa of all time.

When I was a kid, I hardly ate fries because my parents didn’t let me. They had a misconception that fries were all deep fried and super unhealthy. These air fried sweet potato fries are perfectly good for you, use less oil, and are just as crispy! ⭐️ AIR FRIED SWEET POTATOES ⭐️ 2 medium sweet potatoes, cut into ¼ inch sticks Avocado or olive oil spray 2 teaspoons Cajun Seasoning 2 teaspoons smoked paprika Flaky sea salt 2 tablespoons freeze dried chives INSTRUCTIONS Peel and slice the sweet potatoes into ¼ inch sticks.

Add the fries to an air fryer basket, all in one layer, and cook at 380°F for about 14 minutes, flipping once halfway. Air fry until golden brown and crispy on the outside. Timing varies on the air fryer. Garnish with freeze drives chives and serve with your favorite condiment.

This is the easiest way to make chicken less boring is by breading, adding lots of lemon, butter, and pepper to make a mouthwatering sauce. This one-skillet dinner comes together in minutes and it is so delicious! ⭐️ CHICKEN LIMONE ⭐️ 3 whole chicken breasts, sliced lengthwise 3 tablespoons of olive oil Zest and juice of 1 lemon ½ lemon, sliced ½ cup of flour 3 tablespoons of butter 1 tablespoon fresh parsley Salt and pepper, to taste INSTRUCTIONS Rub chicken with 1 tablespoon of olive oil, lemon zest, salt and pepper. In a shallow bowl, add flour. Dip the chicken in the oil mixture, then dredge the chicken on both sides. On a large pan on medium high, place olive oil and wait for it to shimmer. Add the chicken and sear the chicken until golden, about 5 minutes on each side. Remove the chicken. Reduce heat to medium and place the butter and the sliced lemon into the pan, until caramelized, about 1 minute on each side. Reduce the heat to medium low and now add the juice of the lemon juice and parsley. Let the liquid simmer for about 3 minutes, scraping up any brown bits on the bottom with a wooden spoon. Return the chicken back into the pot. Depending on the thickness of the chicken, simmer until the chicken is coked through, about another 6-12 minutes, until the chicken reaches an internal temperature of 165°F. Serve the chicken with the lemon sliced on the top! ⁣ .⁣ .⁣ .⁣ .⁣ .⁣ #chicken #chickenrecipes #chickensofinstagram #chickenbreast #foodpics #foodies
