So I thought, maybe I should make this blog domestic and...add a recipe!! So this dressing, and rice add flair to any taco....really anyone!! Fish tacos especially!!! Shredded pork is my favorite!! Shredded beef as well!!! You guess it, it works! (Good on other things as well!)

Cafe Rio Creamy Tomatillo Dressing

This makes A LOT too, but that's ok, you will want to put it on everything.

1 cup buttermilk ( you can make buttermilk by putting 1 Tablespoon of vinegar in 1 cup regular milk and let it sit for 10 min)

1 cup mayonnaise

1 package buttermilk ranch dressing mix

1/2 bunch cilantro

2 cloves garlic

2 Jalapeno's

2-3 Tomatillos

Peel husk from tomatillos, wash cut in quarters. Cut Jalapenos in half and take out seeds. Roast them on a tray at 400 for 20 min. (I totally did this in the toaster oven.)

Puree all ingredients in a food processor/blender. Chill for one hour or longer.

Assembling the Taco's

Heat corn tortilla's in a pan with some oil, or as desired.

put on shredded cabbage and shreded pork, and squeeze fresh limes juice over it.

Top with dressing.

We made simple spanish rice as a side dish.

Simple Spanish Rice

Saute a chopped onion in a sauce pan till soft, add 1/2 can of diced tomato's, or fresh and cook 2 min. Add rice and toast with veggies for a min. Add water (2 cups water to one cup rice) and 1/2 packets of seasoning like "Sazon Goya" if you have it. ( they have it at Kroger).

When rice is done, squeeze a little fresh lime on it, and stir in some chopped cilantro
