15 recipes for your taco tuesday fiesta!
Cinco de Mayo on Taco Tuesday. God is good.
Cinco is one of those holidays that you might get confused about exactly what it is you’re celebrating, but everyone is here for a good time regardless.
Nope, it’s not Mexico’s independence celebration (which is actually September 16th, if you need another reason to pull out the sombreros in fall) but it IS a celebration, nonetheless. So let’s party!
And to expedite the party, I’ve pulled together a few of my favorite Mexican recipes in one nice little hub for you!
Here are a few of my favorite Mexican recipes from over the years:
LAZY GIRL ENCHILADAS VERDES
They’re called “Lazy Girl” for a reason: these couldn’t be simpler, please a crowd and taste wonderful leftover.
TENDER, CRISPY CARNITAS
Slow roasted then crisped in the oven with a secret ingredient: Coca-cola! Use the carnitas for tacos, quesadillas, enchiladas or salad.
GROUND TURKEY TOSTADAS
A fiesta of flavor (and color). Tostadas are crunchy, customizable and ready in less than half an hour!
MEXICAN STUFFED BELL PEPPERS
A Savvy Spoon favorite: low carb, high protein and packed with flavor! Estimate one pepper per person — these are filling.
BAKED SALSA CHICKEN
Pour on the Pace and let your chicken breasts roast to perfection while you sip a marg.
SHEET PAN FAJITAS
You had me a sheet pan. These chicken fajitas couldn’t be easier: just slice, season and roast for perfectly tender, juicy meat and veggies!
WHOLE30 TACO SALAD
For those of you keepin’ it light and tight: a grain free, gluten free salad made perfectly complete with an avocado lime dressing.
WEEKNIGHT TACOS AL PASTOR WITH ROASTED SALSA VERDE
Juicy, citrus and chipotle-seasoned pork topped with chunks of pineapple and avocado!
Roasted JALAPENO GUACAMOLE
Nacho average guac. This guacamole is flavored by roasted jalapeños and garlic, adding a richness with it’s spice!
TACO-SEASONED TEx-Mex TURKEY BURGERS
A celebration of tacos and turkey burgers — now that’s something to rejoice for!
“RESTAURANT STYLE” SALSA
Because everybody needs some salsa to dip into it! Make your own from scratch and taste the difference from store-bought.
GRILLED CORN GUACAMOLE
Another (slightly sweeter) variation of guac made chunky by grilled corn and onions.
BAKED CHICKEN FLAUTAS
A lighter version of thin and crunchy, chicken-stuffed tortillas, drizzled with greek yogurt sauce.
MEXICAN CHICKEN SOUP
Another light option that can be served as a main dish or as a side to a couple tacos!
STRAWBERRY JALAPEñO MARGARITAS
Nothing says ‘te amo’ quite like rose-colored glasses… and tequila.
