Mexican Recipes To Make Every Day A Fiesta
1. Pico De Gallo
Pico De Gallo requires some chopping, but the best thing about it is that it's such a simple recipe. Use the freshest tomatoes you can find, plus white onion, jalapeño, cilantro, and lime juice, and serve your pico de gallo with crispy tortilla chips, or as a condiment with other dishes.
2. Michelada
This refreshing beer cocktail is a combination of light beer, lime juice, salt, and hot sauce, with flavored tomato juice an often-used ingredient. Take things up a notch by adding soy and Worcestershire sauces for a hint of Bloody Mary-like flavor, and Tajin chili-lime seasoning on the rim.
3. Mexican Tamales
Mexican tamales take time to make, but the final dish is worth it — slowly cook a pork shoulder in smoky ancho chiles until it's fall-apart tender. Fold the meat with freshly-made masa inside corn husks, steam the tamales until they are cooked through, and serve with rice and beans.
4. Mexican Pizza
Recreate the Taco Bell Mexican Pizza right at home by using a crispy tortilla base, topped with Taco Bell-style ground beef, a spicy sauce — which you can whip up in a pinch — refried beans, tomato, and three cheeses, all layered in the right order.
5. 20-Minute Chicken Tacos
To make this recipe, cut boneless chicken breast tenderloins into small pieces, coat the pieces with taco seasoning, and cook them on the stovetop. Use taco-sized flour tortillas and fill them with the seasoned chicken, cubes of avocado, red onion, cilantro, and any other toppings you like.
