Here’s what ya need:

Beef cheek

After 10 hours, pour the juice into a saucepan over medium heat and stir in 2 Tablespoons of masa flour to thicken. Now combine everything back together again and enjoy!

Harissa Fish Tacos

Harissa fish tacos

We were in the mood for tacos the other night and after a quick brainstorming session we decided Harissa would be a fun blend to test on fish.

It was a success, the Harissa gave the fish the spiciness we were craving but it wasn’t overwhelming.

Here’s what you need:

1 lb. Mahi

1 heaping Tablespoon of Harissa

a squeeze of lime juice

Chop the Mahi into nice little chunks and throw them into a bowl. Mix in the Harissa and lime juice and let sit for about 30 mins. After that throw them into a pan over medium to high heat and cook until ready!

We’ll leave the rest up to you. We had lettuce, guacamole, salsa, cheese, and Chimayo chili blend greek yogurt  for toppings, with beans and grilled corn for sides!!
