For the Skirt Steak

Since this is my las blog, im gonna tell you about one of my favorite dishes, Churrasko with chimmichurri sauce. Its not as difficult as you think, its quite simple actually. You start off by with a small bowl, combine cilantro, parsley, oregano, onion, and garlic. Stir in lemon juice and vinegar, then slowly drizzle it in olive oil, stirring constantly until they are combined. Now, my favorite part, season with adobo. And finally, cover and refrigerate until ready to use. once you are ready to eat it, prepare the grill to medium high heat, or heat grill pan over medium to high heat. sprinkle steal on both sides with sazon and adobo. cook steak, flipping, until golden brown, about 6 minuets for medium rare. 
then transfer the steaks to the serving plates and we left the best for last, top with chimmichurri sauce and enjoy!

a gourmet meal straight out of your kitchen!

         Ever wanted a gourmet burger but don’t want to go out to eat one? Well it’s not too difficult to make, give it a try! You can start by preheating an outdoor grill on medium-high heat and lightly oil the grate. Then, mix in the ground chicken, add 1/3 cup cilantro, Cheddar cheese, garlic, jalapeno pepper, lime juice, cumin, paprika, salt, and pepper together in a bowl; and now shape them into 4 patties.
         Once that is done, cook the patties on grill until the bottom has turned brown. Let them sit for about 3 to 4 minutes, then flip the burgers and top them with a slice of Cheddar cheese or any cheese of your choosing. Continue cooking until no longer pink in the center, 1 to 2 minutes more. Once you think that they are ready, put the burgers onto a plate to rest until the juices are reabsorbed into the meat, so for about 3 minutes. Now you are almost done, put burgers onto split buns and top with guacamole and cilantro for a real punch of flavor! Now you are done and ready to enjoy your meal!

       1 1/2 pounds ground chicken
1/2 cup minced yellow onion 
Onions Yellow/Brown
1/3 cup minced fresh cilantro
1/3 cup shredded Cheddar cheese
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 jalapeno pepper, seeded and minced
1/2 lime, juiced
1 teaspoon ground cumin
1 teaspoon paprika
1/2 teaspoon Kosher salt
1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper
4 slices Cheddar cheese
4 hamburger buns, split and toasted 
Hamburger Buns Pretzel Style        

1/4 cup guacamole, or to taste

4 teaspoons chopped fresh cilantro, or to taste

Camaron Enchilado

1 tablespoon olive oil 
1 cup chopped onion 
1/2 cup chopped red bell pepper 
1/2 cup chopped green bell pepper 
1/2  to 1 teaspoon crushed red pepper 
1/4 teaspoon salt 
4  garlic cloves, minced 
1  (14.5-ounce) can diced tomatoes, undrained 
1 pound medium shrimp, peeled and deveined 
1/4 cup light coconut milk 
2 tablespoons chopped fresh cilantro

This is a pretty simple traditional Cuban dish that you can serve to the whole family. It's not difficult or expensive, and it's super delicious! Now the steps are easy, first you heat oil in a large skillet on medium or high heat, then you add the onions and  sauté them for 2 minutes. Once that's done, add bell peppers, crushed red pepper, salt, and garlic, once that's done, sauté it for 4 minutes. Now you're gonna add even more flavor and throw in the tomatoes & allow them to cook for 6 minutes or until liquid almost evaporates, but continue to stir it frequently.
Now that you made the sauce, now it's time for the shrimp! Put the sauce into the shrimp, and cook it for 4 minutes or until shrimp are done, again, make sure you're stirring frequently! Once all that is done, remove the shrimp mixture from heat, and stir it in coconut milk for extra flavor, my grandma showed me that trick! And then when all that is done top it off with some spice, and sprinkle it with some cilantro. 
Now you're all done and ready to enjoy your Cuban meal!
