I had mentioned I might not post today but I decided to post, after all. Maybe you need a weekend meal idea? Or, you can use one of these for next Taco Tuesday!
Who doesn’t love Mexican food?
Here are the things I typically make:
I find Mexican food so easy to make and I think it’s great for families with young kids because you can offer them some choice. You can serve it as a “bar”.
If you are a member of Costco, they have a street taco kit. I noticed my Kroger has this sometimes, too. You could buy that or just make your own kit?
One thing you can do to make this meal more special for a weekend is to pick up the restaurant chips and queso. That’s the best part anyway! Lol!
If you make Mexican at home, don’t forget to make my favorite margarita I have ever had in my life (Spanish teacher talking here so it’s kind of a prerequisite for my job). Here is my recipe.
Last week, I made Mexican potatoes and I thought I would share here. I do need to give credit to Isabel’s Eats blog.
1.5 lbs petite red potatoes, washed, and cut into quarters
2 T. olive oil
1.5 tsp. salt
1/2 tsp. ancho chili powder (I only had normal)
1/2 tsp. dried oregano
1/4 tsp. coriander (I didn’t have this)
1/4 tsp. garlic powder
1/4 tsp. black pepper
pinch of cayenne pepper
1/2 cup freshly grated parmesan cheese (I didn’t have any so I just used the powdered stuff)
4 T. chopped cilantro (I left this out)
Don’t you love how I don’t follow recipes!
Preheat oven to 400
Combine all spices and oil in a big bowl and toss potatoes together with everything until all coated.
Transfer to baking sheet and try to make sure spread out and nothing touching.
Bake for 20 minutes, flip, bake for another 20.
I have also done this with olive oil and a taco seasoning packet. Don’t kill me because that would be a heck of a lot quicker, right?
Think about what you typically order in a Mexican or Tex-Mex restaurant and look up a recipe; I bet it is fairly easy to make!
