¡Hola!

How are you?

I don’t think my brain can comprehend anymore how so many bad things can keep happening this year!

It’s almost like they sit around and play a dangerous game of Russian roulette but with human/civil rights. ¿Verdad?

We’re only 2 months into the new year and we’ve already lost 5 trans women to hate crimes. Why was that necessary? #BlackTransLivesMatter

I don’t understand why some people are so insecure with themselves that they feel the need to lash out against what they don’t understand.

When we were in college, Billy and I lived a few blocks away from Costco, and it was everything.

It literally was.

Costco was one of the few big box stores we had at Humboldt which kept us pretty sane and pretty well fed (we lived 5 hours away from the nearest city).  We used to buy a rotisserie chicken at least once a week which meant we had tostadas for dinner pretty often because we were on that broke college student budget.

The struggle was so real.

Today, I’m throwing it back to those days. We’ll be making those tostadas using rotisserie chicken for a quick dinner, and tossing the chicken in this mole negro vinaigrette to amp them up!

Pro tip: This vinaigrette would also be great in a salad!

I’m heading to Mexico next Thursday, so until then..keep up the good fight, y como siempre, stay chingonx!

Nos vemos pronto.

  • I laughed out loud at the broke college student budget where Costco rotisserie chickens become a staple! I am so glad to know I wasn’t alone there. Tacos, salads, sandwiches… you name it! I put those things in everything!!! And by everything, I mean everything that was fast, easy, and affordable;) College kid budget, ya know. Man, those were the days. This mole vinaigrette looks awesome (w/ or w/out the Costco rotisserie chicken). I love mole!
