It’s the end of summer, well close enough, and it’s time to throw a big party with lots of food, featuring Grilled Steak Burritos with Salsa Spanish Rice. It has officially been one year since I moved to Arizona, and it has been a bizarre adventure…..

The strangest part by far has been dealing with the HOA. Apparently my grass needs to be green 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. Since that is never going to happen, I replaced the entire front yard with Arizona Blonde gravel…..with the help of my son and his friends that is. 🙂

What could say thank  you better than Grilled Steak Burritos with Salsa Spanish Rice? Technically the Salsa Spanish Rice is the star of the meal….

The entire meal took less than an hour to prepare, which means more time for mingling with guests. 🙂

Notes:

  • After you brown the rice and cook the garlic, slowly add the chicken broth to deglaze the pan. Then stir in the salsa.
  • Do not lift the lid while the rice is cooking. Gently shake your pan to move the rice around so it doesn’t stick, and turn it around to avoid any hot spots.

  1. I’m surprised your HOA let you forego the lawn. Many here in drought riddled California still insist you have to have green lawn. That is one reason my husband and I refused to even look at a home on an HOA neighborhood. Do you hire out your son and his friends to help me rip out my front lawn this fall?
    Thanks for sharing with us on Creative K Kids #TastyTuesdays
    This would be a great recipe to make a bunch of hungry young men – nice and hearty but easy on you.

    1. Thankfully they are all for dessert landscape here. I have never lived in an HOA neighborhood before, and I don’t blame you for avoiding them. The only way to avoid them here is to find a house that was built before the mandatory HOA law took affect. No, sadly my son has no time for landscaping or I would send him your way. I can’t even get him to come back to help me finish the backyard. 🙂

  2. Wow! The burritos look delicious! It’s interesting that an HOA would enforce a practice that so often is detrimental to the environment. Continually greening up a lawn, even if done organically, can imbalance what’s below and above the earth’s surface. I love the ‘gravel” look; I’ve seen quite a few done that way in California, and with a few decorative accents, they look spectacular.

    1. Thank you Linda. 🙂 I think the HOA is completely insane! They don’t even allow artificial turf, it has to be real and green or approved rocks. This is the dessert, you’re not supposed to grow grass here, lol
