Last night, my sister was pretty bored….And well, we all know boredom=hunger in our family.  It’s a pretty special trait if you ask me. ;p  It was a great excuse to spend some time on Pinterest, narrow down our options, and take a trip to Publix for all the ingredients.  After that, we spent the evening spinning our own twist on the recipes and making them our own.  It was so much fun! 🙂

We had a Mexican themed night (it is our absolute favorite!).  We made this chicken tacos with lots of different toppings, and homemade churros for dessert (I forgot to snap a pic of those, sadly.  However, if you add me on Snapchat, you’ll be able to see the mid-eaten churros photo there: sophiainza). The best thing we made last night, though, was this Blanco Queso.  It was creamy, and gooey and perfectly warm for a Mexican themed evening.

Juli and I love to visit all the Mexican restaurants in our area.  And, I’ll be honest, I totally judge a place based on it’s queso.  It has to be perfectly creamy, no lumps, not to spicy, and made with very strong cheese.  Our favorites are from Lime and Moe’s.  Both are so delicious.  This recipe is a nice mix between the two.  Absolutely delicious and although we chose not to, you can add a nice kick to it with some diced jalapeños.
