Thinking about what kind of taco to eat next after climbing a pyramid in Mexico

I hope you enjoyed Mexican Independence Day, yesterday. But just in case you’re still looking for Mexican dishes to make this week (can you tell yet it’s my favorite kind of food?)  I’ve gathered up all of MKES’s Mexican recipes for you to look through here. And just so you don’t have to dig for this post, I’ve also added a tab with links on the main page.

But before you start looking through recipes, I wanted to let you know that I’ll be contributing once a month to, an amazing site filled with information that can help you teach your kids about other cultures. I feel privileged to be one of their editors, I will be covering Global Cuisines & Kids. My first post about Finding an Authentic Mexican Taco Shop went live on Friday.

Let’s make a meal

Dinnertime tostadas

A good meal to use up plenty of leftovers from corn tortillas, to chicken, to lettuce and whatever else you have in your fridge.

Authentic Red Chile Enchiladas

This sauce takes time, but it’s worth the effort. Plus you can freeze some for later.

Homemade Sopes and Tortillas

Hand-crafted tortillas are deceptively difficult to make, but the thicker, easier to flip sopes–so much easier!

Authentic Mexican rice

The secret behind this rice is to start with a mixture that resembles pico de gallo.

Amish Nachos

Nothing authentic about ‘em, just an excuse to fuse really good bacon with some Mexican flavors.

Turkey picadillo tacos

So easy and a great way to use ground turkey.


Quick chipotle pico de gallo

This salsa is so versatile you shouldn’t shy away from adding other, unexpected ingredients like dried cherries, chipotle….

Black bean salsa

For a heartier pico de gallo, add your favorite kind of beans.

Sweet stuff

Rice pudding

So soothing after a hearty meal packed with chiles.
