Simple food is the best food.
There’s a Mexican restaurant in my neighborhood that’s really good. They are authentic, make most of their food from scratch, and are therefore a bit pricey. I always order their spicy Mexican shrimp, which burns my face off because it’s made with a habanero, but I don’t even care.
I decided to recreate the recipe at home. There aren’t many ingredients, it took me actually less than 20 minutes to make the meal, and honestly I think my version was better due to the amount of butter I added.
God I love butter.
