The Wargo Whopper

Chile & Lime Taco Seasoning

Today I wanted to revisit my taco seasoning and share a how to on how to make your own homemade version. I made a video for this a very long time ago and it had salt in it.  So I wanted to update the video and make it salt free.  I decided to put a fresh twist on this recipe and add some lime to that taco seasoning to give it a delicious tangy flavor without the salt.  This turned out so great and its really nice to have on hand and at the ready to go whenever you want to make tacos or season something up with it.  [....]

This is actually going to be a double sheet pan dinner.  I did this so that everything would essentially cook at once however there are a couple stages where you will take out then rearrange and then in the end it will take about 45 minutes for everything to be finished.  So stick with me and we will get you through.  Overall this is super easy and it will make your hungry crew happy when dinnertime rolls around.

Chile & Lime Taco Seasoning

Today I want to share with you this delicious leftover makeover using up the Kentucky style beer cheese that I made for Superbowl.  I figured that this cheese would end up getting lost in the back of my fridge so I decided to make this is into a yummy lunch for Rick and I.  We actually ate this twice for lunch so this amount is a good dinner for four.

Chili Poached Eggs

New on Noreen's Kitchen


Today I am sharing a childhood favorite.  One of those foods that keeps me connected to my past in the best way ever.  A touchstone that I like to revisit from time to time that is connected to a happy memory.  In this case it is these "Wargo Whoppers"  English muffin burgers.  When I was 7 or 8 years old, my daddy grilled burgers and realized we had no buns, but we did have English muffins.  So he toasted those on the grill and served the burgers on them and the Wargo Whopper was born.  As clearly as it were yesterday, I can see him setting that burger down in front of me.

​Leftover Makeover

Chile & Lime Taco Seasoning

Recently Posted on Noreen's Kitchen

Having grown up in Arizona, chili and eggs was something I was introduced to early on.  My mother never made it, having a fairly big aversion to anything containing beans.  So I was first served this at the home of a friend in Jr.  high school.  I have to say, I thought I had died and gone to heaven!  Homemade chili simmered in a shallow pan with eggs poached right in there.  When you are 12 years old this seems very odd, but the older you get and the longer you live in the American southwest this becomes the norm. This quick and tasty dish is a favorite of many old timers way out west and beyond! [....]

Balsamic Chicken

Sheet Pan Dinner

Today I am sharing how to make red onion hot dog sauce.  If you are a fan of the New York style hot dog and the carts from which they hail or places like Nathan's Famous, Gray's Papaya and a myriad of others, you know red onion sauce.  It is the most amazing condiment to ever top a tube steak (that is what my step dad always called them) ever!  [....]
