It’s not like we really need an excuse to make Mexican food but we have an official one on Sunday. So bring on the chips and salsa!
I’ve been at the business of sharing recipes here for almost two years and a good number of them have been for Mexican inspired dishes. I’ve pulled together 10 of my favorites to share with you today that would all be excellent choices for this weekend’s festivities.
Love pasta but still want to get in on the fun? I’ve got you covered with this Taco Pasta Bake.
Chicken Tacos with Mango Avocado Salsa. Fast, fresh, and so, so good. The salsa is good on it’s own but does something really special to simple chicken tacos.
Tomatillo or “verde” salsa is my favorite and it is super easy to make at home. It’s nearly impossible to walk away from this Roasted Tomatillo Salsa.
Fully Loaded Guacamole – the name says it all. Guacamole with the works. Corn, black beans, bell pepper, jicama, cilantro, and lime. Substantial, wholesome, and totally addictive.
The recipe for these Veggie Tostadas includes a great, no-fry method for making crispy, satisfying tortillas to load up with refried beans and the veggies of your choice. A reduced guilt, but flavor packed option.
This old school casserole has stood the test of time. Chicken Tamale Casserole is Incredibly easy to put together and super family friendly.
My all time favorite method for cooking fall apart, tender beef. This Shredded Mexican Beef is an excellent foundation for a variety of Mexican dishes from tacos, to burritos, to enchiladas and more.
Go live your life and come home to these super easy and delicious Crock-Pot Chicken Tacos. One of my crazy, busy day favorites.
A fast and simple turkey chili bakes right over the top of cornbread batter. Dress up this Chili Cornbread Bake with taco toppings like chopped tomatoes, onion, and sour cream for Cinco de Mayo.
A no oil baking method results in crispy Baked Chicken Taquitos. These are very easy to put together and finger food is fun!
Get the beer on ice, mix up a batch of margaritas and get cookin’. I hope you’ve found something here to make your Cinco de Mayo, or any old night of the week a special one.
