Cuisine: Mexican

Last week I was finally able to take a small vacation, so I took my kids and the girlfriend to the Texas coast.  I’ve got to say, I absolutely loved South Padre!  If you’ve not been, I highly encourage you to give it a try – not during spring break of course, unless that’s your thing…  I also recommend you give the guys over at Captain Murphy’s a try if you decide to go saltwater fishing as we did.  Also highly recommend you give SPI Excursions a shot if you decide you’d like to go Parasailing – what fun!!

Anyhow, today I decided to make some pan fried fish (since we had a few fish from fishing in South Padre) as well as some chicken (because my daughter doesn’t like to eat fish, just catching them!)

While you can make your own red chile sauce, I’ve found it’s more work than it’s worth. If you you’d like a recipe for a red chile sauce though, let me know in the comments and I’ll add it.
