Here’s another tidbit for you. Beans and meat are awesome freezer foods! It is so nice to pull out a tray of homemade burritos from the freezer and heat them up for dinner without any prep.

Here are some of my favorite, go-to Mexican dishes.

  1. This all looks so delicious that I want to lick the screen!

    Thanks for posting my link. 🙂

  2. I’m drooling now! I could eat Mexican every single day but my family isn’t a big fan.

  3. Great job!! These look phenomenal. One tried and true Mexican dish at my house is Mexican Lasagna. Think tortillas instead of pasta, enchilada sauce instead of tomato sauce, and a whole lot of Mexican cheeses to bring it all together.

    These look AMAZING; my mouth is watering =) I’m making jalapeno poppers to take to a friend’s Cinco de Mayo showing of Nacho Libre tomorrow.

    We also make a Mexican Lasagna that you can make in the microwave (it’s vegetarian, so you don’t have to worry about the meat turning rubbery….) Just layer flour tortillas in a casserole with cheese (half shredded taco cheese, half cottage cheese for some moisture), chopped green pepper and onion, pinto and/or black beans, and enchilada or tomato sauce or salsa. End with a generous sprinkling of cheese over the top- you can never have too much cheese! You can put in any other veggies as well (olives would be good- my kids don’t like them). Then microwave on high for 15 minutes until everything’s heated through and the cheese is melted. Serve with chips and salsa.

  5. All these recipes look absolutely delicious and just in time for tonight’s meals! My family loves Mexican food. Thanks for posting this!
