Roasted Tomatillo Green Salsa
Fresh roasted tomatillo salsa is simply the best! I've been making this tomatillo salsa recipe for years. It's super easy, very few ingredients and takes little time. This recipe is also in one of my previous cookbooks, Entertaining with Amy (definitely not a smart point friendly cookbook and thus the reason I ended up joining Weight Watchers). For a lower carb option serve with fresh jicama chips!

Tomatillo Salsa 3 Ways!
Green - This version is mild and ...
This salsa is great by itself but is an excellent complement to my Pineapple Skillet Fajitas. Basically a pico de gallo with pineapple! My family likes things spicy so I add quite a bit of jalapeño. It balances nicely with the sweetness of the pineapple. Feel free to leave the jalapeños out if you're not a fan of spicy food. It tastes great without the spice as well. I also like to serve the salsa in 1/2 of a hollowed out pineapple shell for a unique presentation.
Pineapple Skillet Fajitas
Pineapple Skillet Fajitas were inspired by one of the members, (Small Girl, Strong Why) who is on the Fatdag Blog team where I post as a guest blogger. I am proud to be a member of their non-profit team-Operation Fatdag. My friend recently visited Manola a restaurant in Mississippi, and snapped a picture of her meal-Pineapple Fajitas and sent it to me. It sounded so intriguing that I decided to try my hand at creating it. Not sure if my version measures up to theirs (since I've never tasted ...
Homemade Hoisin Sauce - I could literally drink this stuff but at 2 smart points per tablespoon, maybe I shouldn't. A little goes a long way and adds a lot of pizzazz. It's very versatile, I use it in lettuce wraps, as a sauce for my Thai Pizza, and as a dressing with left over Kalua Pig. It's also great over my Spicy Roasted Vegetables. It's so yummy and this is coming from girl who hates peanut butter! Really! But I love this sauce. I make mine a bit spicy but feel free to ...
Chipotle Fish Tacos
These are super easy and quick to make. Great with rock fish, tilapia and other white fish. Serve with my Mango Salsa and Jalapeño Cream. I like to use BBQ grill mats with my little gas grill. The fish doesn't stick and it makes clean up a breeze!

This mango salsa is so fresh! Make sure you get a good ripe mango for best taste. It's great over salad, with chips and my favorite is tucked away in a fish taco. Yum! I like to spice it up with an entire jalapeno but you may want to try it with 1/2 of one first.
Trying serving this Mango Salsa with my Chipotle Fish Tacos. A delicious combination!
Instant Pot Kalua Pig
I've been making this Instant Pot Kalua Pig for many years but it's even better in my Instant Pot. This is my "Go To," recipe when I need a recipe that makes a lot, pleases everyone, and is easy and quick to make. It does take about 70 minutes in the Instant Pot, but the prep time is almost nothing.
What to do with leftover Kalua Pig/Kalua Pork?
This is one of the recipes in my recipe trilogy series. Whenever we have a family get together, I make this dish because you ...
Thai Pork Pizza
My Thai Pork Pizza is a unique combination of my Homemade Hoisin Sauce, my Kalua Pork, fresh ginger, onions, garlic, cilantro and cabbage. These pizzas make up very quickly if you have the pizza dough in the freezer and the Kalua pork already made. You can also use cooked chicken in place of the pork. This recipe is for 4 but you could easily do it for more or less people. The secret ingredient in this recipe is the homemade hoisin sauce.
Why do I have two pizza dough recipes listed?
