  1. I love you all so much! I was weirdly nervous to put out this video, since I'm just trying out some new content on my channel. I appreciate the love & support of me trying something new! 🙂
    ALSO! I ended up typing up printable PDF recipes for each of these! They are linked in the info box! 🙂

  2. Just so you know- I guarantee that every Mexican or Latina watching nearly had a heart attack watching you microwave those tortillas! 🤣 Some have left kind comments explaining why your tortillas are falling apart, but I promise you they were inwardly screaming! My dead mother in law might be crying somewhere in a corner of heaven right now. LOL. On a separate note- where did you discover the Dr Zevia?! I miss Dr Pepper but just found out I’m diabetic and can’t have soda anymore 😭

  3. My favorite week night meal is Slap Yo' Mama Etouffe sauce with shrimp or crawfish (or chicken) over rice or cauliflower rice. Ready in 10 minutes. It is $5 for a jar and we use half per meal because there is only two of us, so I don't do it all the time.

  4. I made the tacos and oh my gosh, they are amazing! My husband and I liked them so much we tried it again the next day but with chicken instead of beef. So good!!

  5. Can we sauté the scallions/onions in sesame oil instead of using a different oil? I used 80/20 meat so I’m wondering how to cut some grease/oil (I don’t want to drain because I fear I’ll lose flavor.

  6. Jess, your tortillas break apart because they are not hot enough. Try adding at least 30 more seconds to what ever time you are originally doing. Also, try heating them on a comal (griddle) no need to add oil if you do.

  7. Awww Jessica I enjoyed this video! I've been watching you for years so it was like cooking dinner with a friend! You're so down to earth and real. Thanks for the recipes. We usually have these kinds of ingredients on hands so win win!

  8. Ok I tried this today with a 1/2 recipe and it was pretty good. I didn’t have scallions so I started with a 1/4 brown onion and a doret frozen garlic cube with avocado oil and kept to the recipe, and added about 2 tbsp sugar. A great addition is sprinkling the everything but the bagel seasoning from Trader Joe’s in the meat and on each taco as a garnish! I wish I had some Kimchi for them!

  9. If you don't want your corn tortillas to fall apart, nuke 8 for ~80 seconds (1200watt microwave), wrap that paper towel in plastic wrap. So they can keep steaming. Or get a microwave tortilla cooker thing. 30 seconds is not long enough. Otherwise, cook them in a pan on the stove top for about 40-45 seconds per side. Corn tortillas require actually being cooked to not fall apart. 🙂

  10. Awesome! When my children were toddlers, I would cook only on the back burners…. you just never know. It would take only the tiniest split second.

  11. Get in the habit of turning your pot handles away from the edge of the stove so GiGi doesn’t grab at them and pull hot water on herself. Sorry to be bossy, but that about gave me a heart attack, seeing her in one frame and then the boiling water pot handle hanging over the edge in the other.

    Throw some of that white wine in that Mac & Cheese while you’re at it. Yum yum!

  12. Hey again Jessica! Just wanted to let you know the tacos were a HIT at our house! My 15 year old said he could have eaten 7 of them 😳 even our picky 12 year old ate one and totally made another! Shocked! We WILL be making this again next week cuz no one got their fill. Everyone just thought they were amazing!! LOL. Thank you again so much!!

  13. I love when you do lifestyle videos. I'm making those eggs but over medium 😂😂! I think I'll try that tomorrow if I have the right spice for it and I think I do! Excited

  14. Heat the corn tortillas on the stove. Much much better. 😬👍🏽 you should do more of these for sure! I want to try that Mac n cheese!! Now I’m hungry…and I just ate. 😂

  15. Making the sesame tacos tonight! I can’t wait to try them. And we are making the grown up Mac n cheese on Sunday when my hubby is off work. He’s at the store getting the stuff for the Mac n cheese for Sunday right now 😁 we got a free 10 lb spiral honey ham from our points at the store (large family, growing teenage boys…need I say more? We have to shop a lot!) so we are going to use ham in place of the chicken in the Mac n cheese. I figured that would be a good way to use some of it. Thank you for sharing the recipe. So far we made the tortellini soup and it was delicious!! So thanks again!
