Confession time: we don’t eat tacos that much. Well, besides breakfast tacos. I haven’t been able to full transition BMW to the Austin lifestyle quite yet. He still isn’t the biggest fan of Mexican food and especially not Tex-Mex. Which drives me mad because Mexican food and Tex-Mex are basically like just food to me. I grew up in Texas so we ate tacos, in many different forms, all the time. And I still love when I order at a restaurant and they just bring a thing of tortillas. Oh you ordered enchiladas? Here are some tortillas. Salad? I mean why not. Fresh corn tortillas are some my favorite things ever. Finding them can be tough though. When I do make tacos at home we typically opt for flour. Anyways, I was thrilled when BMW actually liked these veggies tacos! I mean they were vegetarian AND tacos, so I really feel accomplished y’all. Getting my picky Midwest raised BF to get on board with anything besides meat and potatoes can be a struggle. So I am pumped to share these with you!
This week I tried my hand at a little BBQ brisket for my friends over at Brit+Co.. Brisket for breakfast, lunch and dinner? Now, I don’t know what could be more Texan than that!

While couch surfing you’ll probably do a lot of eating out. I actually made a quick trip back home one night this week. While there, I grabbed dinner with the fam at one of my fav DFW spots Mi Cocina. It’s fun but nothing too fancy, great for group dinners.
I started the night off with a Mambo Taxi, my fav drink there!
What’s your fav dish at Mi Cocina?
