Mexican Food Favorites

Who doesn’t like Mexican food? From enchiladas to tacos, I happen love them all. Below are some of my Mexican food favorites.

I’ve had Tex Mex in various Texas cities, from one end of Texas to the other. And the little local restaurants had the best food, I must admit.

But then there’s absolutely no beating the cooking bloggers!

Chipotle Quinoa Sweet Potato With Roasted Pomegranate Cranberry Salsa: Phew, they didn’t forget any of the superfood, health-tastic ingredients in this appealing recipe. (via Half Baked Harvest)

How about Cream Cheese and Chicken taquitos by Lil Luna?

What are TAQUITOS?

How about taquitos? This is a Mexican dish consisting of a small tortilla that is rolled around a filling of meat and cheese and then deep-fried.


Chicken Fajita Quesadillas:

Sautéed onions, red and green peppers, perfectly seasoned chicken breast, melted cheese, between two tortillas. Simply yummy by Jo Cooks.

Just look at that stack of deliciousness!


Drunken Beans (Frijoles Borrachos):

If I were given the naming rights to this one, I’d probably go more along the lines of Bacon and Beer Simmered Beans.

I grew up with beans being a mainstay at our house. We lived in the country and ate mostly from our garden. Beans was a favorite go-to meal.


Chicken enchiladas:

This chicken enchilada recipe is super-flexible and easy to customize with any of your favorite add-ins.

Veggie crack:

This Mexican-inspired salad is made with black beans, corn, red peppers and avocado in a lime cilantro vinaigrette.

Smothered Chili burritos:

This amazing meal is made in the crock pot. You can make the homemade refried beans a day or two ahead of time and use it for different meals or dips as well.  It makes a lot.

And now for dessert…

Cinnamon dessert nachos:

This is a dessert nacho recipe made by drizzling warm chocolate syrup over vanilla ice cream and baked cinnamon sugar coated tortilla chips.


  1. We did a roast in the crock pot a couple of days ago, then shredded it and wrapped in tortillas, along with refried beans and cheese. They freeze well and are handy when you want something quick for lunch. We lived in Arizona for many years and had our pick of wonderful Mexican food restaurants, but nothing beats homemade. Oh, and we also did margaritas. It was a feast!

  2. You are killing me! All of those look so delicious!! My favorite Mexican food is beef and bean nachos from a little restaurant called Tio Tony's in Midlothian, TX. I could eat them all day long they are so good! And now, after looking at all of these wonderful dishes, I want some nachos from TX. LOL

  3. Yumeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee! I want it all. I tell Cowboy all the time we were born in the wrong place
    I think Mexican food should be added to the food groups!
    Last week I actually got to taste (I'm on a diet) Tres Leches Cake made by a real hispanic mom of one of my students. Oh my! I could do w/o the black beans though. But they are really good for you.
    Thanks for sharing this and making me sooooooooooooooooo hungry. XXOO

  4. I sure would enjoy a big plate filled with ice cream, chocolate sauce and whatever those crispy tid bits are..
    I'm making chili today…….it's hot and I'm making chili…….Easiest way to cook in the crock pot.
    I love FOOD period……….I just wish I had a good cook to fix it for me..
    I hope you're having an enjoyable Sunday.
