Are you a true Queen of the South? Do you love powerful woman on TV and shows packed with action and adventure? If so you need to watch Queen of the South on USA Network!
Being a Texas born gal living in Georgia I definitely consider myself a “Queen of the South”, and when I started watching the actual show Queen of the South I couldn’t get enough. This show is all about powerful women and is packed full of action. It’s the perfect show for a “girls night in” but my husband also loves this show too!
In case you missed Season 1, here’s a little background. The main character Teresa Mendoza (played by Alice Braga) is a poor money changer in the town of Sinaloa, Mexico. She meets Raymundo “El Güero” Davila….who works for the Mexican cartel leader Epifanio Vargas. Teresa quickly becomes accustomed to a lavish lifestyle provided to her by Güero. However, when Güero suddenly dies…Teresa is sent running for her life by the cartel who will stop at nothing to catch her. I can’t tell you anymore without spoiling it but don’t worry. The entire first season is also on Netflix and we are only 3 episodes into Season too so you have time to catch up!
Now on to the good stuff! Once you catch up to Season 2 …things get very interesting for Teresa. I promise you will not be able to wait till Thursday nights to see what’s going to happen next but if you are having the girls over for some viewing fun….you will need to serve up some of our favorite treats and nothing Says Mexico like real authentic street tacos!
Mexican Street Tacos
– Mission Street Taco Corn Tortillas or La Banderita Corn Tortillas (more traditional)
– Cooked Carne Picada (chopped Steak)
– Raw white onions (chopped)
– Chopped Cilantro
– Lime Wedges
– Cotija Cheese (optional)
– Hot Sauce (optional)
** *Season your meat however you prefer. I just use pepper and Adobo but you can also use packaged taco seasoning if you prefer. Cook your carne picada until well done. Serve over warm tortillas and garnish with onions & cilantro. I like to squeeze a bit of lime and add a little cotija cheese. If you are really bold you can also add your favorite hot sauce. My favorite is Cholula Chile Lime.
Serve with your favorite Mexican beer (I prefer Corona) …… but like a true Queen of the South you can make your beer a little fancier and serve in cute champagne glasses with a fruit garnish!
So grab your gal pals, some tasty snacks and drinks and enjoy the show every Thursday night at 10/9 Central on USA Network!
