We had two buffalo on the ranch and they were the inspiration for this dish- we like to make it using our Imus Ranch Turquoise Buffalo Tortilla Chips, which were also named after them.  View recipe

 

 

 

 

 

 

Ranch Tacos

Seitan is sometimes called wheat meat because it’s made from gluten, which is the protein component of wheat with the starch removed.  There are recipes for making it from scratch, which is pretty labor-intensive, but luckily you can also buy it ready-made at most health food stores.  We love these meaty and cheesy tacos.  View Recipe

 

 

Eddie's Pico de Gallo

Literally translated from the Spanish, the name for this spicy relish means "roosters beak." Perhaps it got its name because it's the perfect finger-food sauce, and your thumb and forefinger form a beaklike shape when holding tortilla chips. Once you start into it, it's hard to stop.
