Mexican

A white casserole dish partially filled with cheese enchiladas, garnished with cilantro, cheese, and crema.

Cheese Enchiladas

Got chile sauce? Corn tortillas? Cheese? Sour Cream? Limes? Fantastic. Then you’ve got the makings for some of the easiest enchiladas ever.

A glass of Mexican mojito with lime slices floating in it and a mint sprig garnish.

Mexican Mojito

Inspired by its Cuban cousin, this Mexican mojito might even be sexier and suaver thanks to that bad boy, smooth tequila. Buena onda, indeed.

Four Mexican chocolate pops in colored bowls in a tray of ice.

Mexican Chocolate Pops

A little something dark and decadent to swoon over on a sultry summer afternoon. A little cinnamon- and cayenne-laced chocolate and cream never hurt anyone.

A person assembling a pork taco in a corn tortilla with a bowl of roast pork, a bowl of salsa, and a dish of sliced radishes on the table.

Pork Tacos

Almost as good as cramming tacos from a street cart in your piehole late at night with pork juice dripping from your elbow.

A bowl filled with seven-layer dip with a spoon resting inside and a plate with tortilla chips, dip, and a lime wedge on the side.

Seven Layer Dip

Seriously the best seven layer dip we’ve ever had. Swear. And it comes together in minutes without any heat. Summer supper, anyone?

Two people reaching for traditional molletes on a platter with a bowl of salsa in the middle.

Traditional Molletes

An insanely satiating comfort food fix that’s as quick and easy as it is inexpensive. Refried beans and cheese atop toast with pico de gallo. Wish we’d known about this a loooong time ago.

A shredded beef taco bar--a wooden platter with a braised beef shank, cilantro, lime, and pickled onions

Shredded Beef Taco Bar

A taco extravaganza that’s one part classic Mexican cooking, two parts slightly unconventional toppings, and all parts surprisingly simple to toss together.

Churros

Fried dough in any incarnation is something to get excited about. Though we’re sorta partial to this particular cinnamon sugar-coated awesomeness.

A person mashing avocado into a bowl of easy guacamole on a table with salt, avocado, cilantro, lime, and chiles.

Easy Guacamole

Easy as heck, this guacamole takes a minimalistic approach that keeps ingredients to the essentials yet doesn’t disappoint. Sorta tricky to come by that these days. And yet here we are.

A stack of flour tortillas with bacon fat on a cast-iron skillet.

Flour Tortillas With Bacon Fat

Soft. Supple. Ever so slightly smoky. And frugal thanks to grandma’s trick of saving the fat from breakfast bacon. One taste and you’ll understand our obsession.
