Anything for Salinassssss! Isn't this mural gorgeous?...💜 but it so hard to find! 😩 In my stories today, I shared that I wrote a whole blog post on the best murals in San Antonio. Fun fact to the new friends who just joined in the fun, I lived in San Antonio for 18 years before moving to North of Austin in 2017 and Hungry Traveling Mama was born in San Antonio. 🎉 I am huge mural and wall art fan, but there wasn't clear directions where to find these murals. So I spent 2 days running around the city, frustrated. 💆🏻‍♀️ When I created the blog post I wanted to make sure every single person who read it was able to find them easily. So, I said to myself: Self, create a blog post where is clear where these murals are. 😂😌 In the blog post I highlight these fantastic murals with the artist name, their web page or Instagram link and the best part? The address is clickable to a google map! If you are going out there to search for these, be responsible and wear a mask and be safe!😷 Which one is your favorite?✨ link in bio!

Loaded Cheesy Fries with fried eggs and Pollo Asado

You can check my air fryer adobo fries recipe here! I prefer Peanut or Avocado oil because they have a higher smoking point – 520 for Peanut Oil and 450 for Avocado oil 520 degrees. You can check my adobo fries recipe here where I show you how I make them in the air fryer. These Loaded Cheesy Fries with fried eggs and Pollo Asado are my kids favorite.

Money can't buy happiness but it can buy a bottle of good tequila!🍾 It's #NationalTequilaDay and a few weeks ago I got a bottle of @anteeltequilas Premium Tequila. It is a black owned business founded in Michigan by Nayana Ferguson - a pancreatic and breast cancer survivor- her goal to educate people on the benefits of tequila and change the stereotypical thought of what tequila is. Anteel is short for Antillean, which is a species of hummingbird. Made with 100% Blue Weber Agave plant, which gets harvested after 7 years. Anteel is a 70 proof premium sipping tequila, ya'll its smooth!😌 They created the world’s only Coconut Lime Blanco Tequila. It has an initial hint of lime followed by the soft finish of natural coconut. I created a Guava Margarita using the Coconut Lime Tequila Blanco. The sweetness of the guava and the smoothness of the tequila with a hint of lime and coconut makes it a perfect pair. Check out the recipe below! 1c of Guava juice or nectar 2 oz tequila 1 oz triple sec Juice if a lime 1/2 cup of crushed ice Tajin Lemon for garnish Guava cubes (pour guava juice in an ice tray and freeze overnight) Put everything except guava ice cubes and shake in a mason jar. In two @tajin prepared glasses put 3 guava cubes then pour mix from the mason jar. Garnish with lime and more tajin. Salud!

Shrimp Sandwich with Spicy Creamy Coleslaw

One of my favorites to make is the Shrimp Sandwich with Spicy Creamy Coleslaw, using Gorton’s Seafood Crispy Beer Battered Shrimp. #AD: While this post was sponsored by Gorton’s Seafood, ALL opinions and recipe are my own Gorton’s products are a staple in my house when I want something quick and delicious. Cook some for a quick snack and save the rest for another time, prepare an entire pack for the whole family, or incorporate the shrimp into your meal prep routine It’s a good source of protein, rich in vitamins and minerals, non-GMO, and immunity boosting With a fresh taste and a quick cook time, Gorton’s shrimp is an easy way to incorporate more seafood into your diet.

Are you team savory or sweet!?🤔 The breakfast I grew up eating was a bit different. We ate empanadillas, chuletas con pan or jamonilla con huevo. Once I moved to United States in 1997, I began exploring and expanding my palate. I believe that cooking and eating with ingredients different to our own, is the beginning of expanding our culinary worldview.🌍🍴 Until I moved the US, I‘ve never heard of everything bagels or bagels. We usually eat bread that we would buy every morning at the Panaderia. So bagel’s chewy texture was a different thing for me. Also let’s not talk about the different types and how and where they are made, it really makes a difference (I see you NY bagels!)🥯 I have made different versions of this recipe with ham and potatoes, with bacon and panchetta. I bought a few bags of @franzbakery Cheese Everything Bagel (limited edition) and I was trying to figure out what to do with the remainder bag. Chorizo seems the perfect match for the cheese bagels. Adding Gruyere and Fontina cheese makes this a scrumptious brunch favorite!😌 Recipe is live on the blog! Link in bio✨*save and share* with your brunch loving friends! 🧡

Easy Vegan "Fish" Oyster Mushroom Tacos

Here is a quick and easy recipe for Vegan “Fish” Oyster Mushroom Tacos! These are supposed to be Vegan “fish” Oyster Mushroom tacos so to make sure the whole meal stays truly vegan, I used Forager Vegan yogurt made of Cashew’s milk. In a blender add 1/3 cup of yogurt, 1/3 cup of cilantro, juice from a lime, half a jalapeño (I like to roast it a pan to bring out the flavor) and salt and pepper. I serve them with a quick purple cabbage slaw, mixing 1 cups of shreded purple cabbage, 1 tbsp of sesame oil + 1/2 tsp Rice vinegar and 1 Tbsp of Furikake.

Is it ok to cook other culture’s food!?🔥 Yes. When we delve into other culinary cultures through cooking or eating is, in most instances, a sign of culinary appreciation. We must keep in mind that food is part of a culture’s identity and we must be respectful. What’s not ok, is stealing a recipe claim it as your own, that’s culinary appropriation. When I want to make a recipe from a different culture, I research and educate myself on the ingredients, cooking method and history of the dish. That’s exactly what I did with one of my favorite dishes: Thai Fried Rice or Khao Phat, which is a variety of fried rice typical of central Thai cuisine. In Thai, "khao" means "rice" and "phat" mean "of or relating to being stir-fried". The dish normally contains meat, egg, onions, garlic, and some tomatoes. Traditionally, Thai Fried Rice is made using Jasmine rice and it is seasoned with Fish and Oyster sauce. Purists will tell you that if you use Soy sauce, it is no longer Thai Fried Rice. The recipe I am sharing on the blog is my take on the classic dish. *Save and share* Link is in my Bio!💙

10 years ago I went full Vegan😬 I, a pork and carne frita, mofongo with Shrimp and lobster loving Puertorican went Vegan. Also, ten years ago there wasn’t many Vegan options that didn’t taste like a shoe. I lasted longer than I thought I would. Then I quit. 🤷🏻‍♀️ About a year ago I started incorporating more Vegan/Vegetarian Recipes into our meals. I started researching more Vegan/Vegetarian substitutes and I was surprised that a lot has changed since my year stint at being Vegan. One of my favorites are Mushrooms🍄. So I was pleasantly surprised when I was introduced to Oyster Mushrooms. Oyster Mushrooms are delicate and have a chewy somewhat oyster texture (hence the name). When cooked they have a Shellfish like taste. Some have said that it has a slight anise or earthy flavor. The flavor profile is mild and it is great for cooking! Today on the blog I am sharing a Complete Vegan recipe on "Fish" Oyster Mushroom Tacos with a Cilantro, Lime & Jalapeño Crema! And also more on my Vegan stint. What’s your favorite Vegan/vegetarian dish!! Link in Bio!✨
