Kale and Mushroom Side

This is a super easy and quick side dish that you can throw together at the last minute. With just a few ingredients and items that I normally have on hand, I love this kale and mushroom side and I love pairing it with either roasted chicken or a simple seared steak. This kale and mushroom side can be made in less than 10 minutes from start to finish (depending, of course, on how good your knife skills are) and because it is very low maintenance, it can be completed while you are working on the main dish. The kale becomes super soft with just a hint of garlic that isn't too overwhelming. I'm not going to lie, but I can eat the entire skillet to myself in one sitting (Oops!).

Barbacoa Beef plus Corn Salsa

Cinco de Mayo is tomorrow and it is the perfect time to serve up something spicy. This barbacoa beef is way better than the stuff you find at Chipotle's and can be served over rice or as a taco. This barbacoa beef is low maintenance and can be made in either a dutch oven or a slow cooker. I went the dutch oven route and packed a lot of heat in it with chipotle peppers. Slowly cooked over low heat, this beef isn't tough and melts in your mouth. Serve up a crowd at your Cinco de Mayo party with this spicy beef topped with a corn salsa.
