Spicy Marinara Meatballs

Ohhmyy why do meatballs have to be on pasta or something else, just eat a big bowl of these and you will thank us! Super easy to make and makes for an entree or even appetizer. You will end up using most of your jar and you won’t regret it.


1 lb. ground beef (90/10 or 80/20)

1 lb. ground pork

1 L. of your favorite tomato sauce (we used MOM’s)

1 medium yellow onion, thinly sliced

3 Tbsp olive oil

5 - 6 Tbsp Salsa Maya + 4 Tbsp more for sauce

3 tsp salt

In a bowl, mix ground beef, ground pork, Salsa Maya & salt. Roll into 1.5 inch balls and set aside. Heat a large pot to medium heat, pour in olive oil & saute the onions for 5 minutes. Place the meatballs in the pot (ps. don’t place them too close to each other & don’t put one on top of the other). Pour the tomato sauce & the extra Salsa Maya. Cover and let it simmer, stir carefully so you don’t break up the meatballs. Simmer for 15-20 minutes and serve in a bowl!! A Baguette goes great with this!!

Shrimp Fried Rice

This is the best fried rice ever and its done with things you find in your kitchen including leftovers, not to mention with the deliciously spicy Salsa Maya! Not to boast but seriously it does go on everything ;P 

So we always have frozen shrimp in my house, but don't you worry if you don't, you can add any protein or leave it vegetarian! Also all the veggies you forgot to use that are about to go bad bring them out... I don't know about you but being Mexican, we always have left over rice. pssst also if you go out to Chinese restaurant there is always left over steamed rice that no one ate haha take it to go and make an even better fried rice then them. 

Okay enough of the chatter, here is the recipe (obviously use what you have that's the point)


6 shrimp, peeled & deveined
1 carrot, peeled and thinly sliced
1/2 onion, thinly sliced
1 c. broccoli, ( I used frozen ) cut in small pieces
2 Chinese boxes of white rice or 2 cups of cooked white rice
4 Tbps Salsa Maya
soy sauce to taste
3 Tbps vegetable oil

Heat up a skillet to medium heat, add oil to pan and first put in your vegetable that takes longer to cook, in this case the carrots. Saute them for a minute and then add onions and saute for another minute, and so on with your other veggies. Add broccoli and saute until the vegetables are tender, about 4-5 minutes. Meanwhile cut the shrimp into small pieces. Move the vegetables towards the outside of the skillet to make a circle in the middle. Add more oil and add the shrimp and sprinkle salt, when they are almost cooked add the rice. Saute everything together for 3-4 minutes. Add the soy sauce, & SALSA MAYA. Stir until completely mixed. Cook for another 2-4 minutes and serve! 

Literally takes about 15-20 minutes to make and it is ohhh sooo delicious 



So Queso means cheese in Spanish, but Que-sooo in Texas is much more than that ( and a big deal for TEX-MEX lovers). So forget velveeta and rotel because that is not why your here. Get ready for a recipe that will have you making it in batches!

If you want to alternate for another cheese go for it..

1/4 lb. American Cheese, grated
1/2 lb. cheddar Cheese, grated
1/4 lb. Mozzarella Cheese, grated
6 Tbsp. Salsa Maya

Heat heavy cream in a saucepan, when it begins to simmer add cheeses a little at a time. Don't stop mixing. Continue adding the cheese until it is all melted and gooey. Add Salsa Maya and remove from heat. Get your chips ready!
