Simply fill a tall glass with ice. Add tequila and lime juice. Top with ginger beer and mix. In a matter of minutes you’re sipping down smooth and easy.

For spritzy mocktails with the same gingery bite–keep the lime, skip the tequila. Also delicious!

Easy Swiss Chard and Fried Egg Tacos

Tender Swiss chard and over-easy eggs folded into soft corn tortillas. With salsa-spiked pinto beans and avocado–a winning combination! Chard and fried egg tacos are one of the easiest dinners on the planet.

Chard is a two-for-one vegetable, meaning we can eat the stems as well as the leafy greens. The chard stems enhance vegetarian dishes with their meaty texture and pleasing crunch. These tacos are a delicious way to use my favorite leafy green.
