Dips and Salsas
I love nothing more than some chips and salsa to go along with a delicious Tex-Mex dinner, the hard part is figuring out which salsa to pick. We’ve got your traditional tomato salsa, fruit salsa (add some chicken for delicious Mango Chicken Salad), and delicious dessert salsa’s served with cinnamon chips.

Enchiladas are my absolute favorite Tex-Mex meal. Traditionally they are made with corn tortillas rolled around cheese, chicken, or beef, and covered in sauce before baking. We’ve put our own little spin on them by turning classic chicken and beef enchiladas into casseroles. For a more traditional version we also have an awesome recipe for enchiladas filled with tender braised beef.
Beef Enchilada Casserole
Beef Enchilada Casserole is layers of seasoned ground beef, cheese, enchilada sauce, and soft flour tortillas baked until everything is hot and bubbly. It’s an easy weeknight dinner that the whole family will love!
I make fajitas for my family all the time. They are so easy to throw together, peppers, onion, beef or chicken, and a simple homemade spice mix all cooked together for a delicious meal that you serve on flour tortillas. Make them in the oven or try a fun twist on this classic recipe by turning it into a pasta salad or delicious grilled skewers.
Oven Chicken Fajitas
Oven chicken fajitas are a super simple and keto friendly dinner your family will love! It requires very little prep and cooks up in less than an hour for an easy meal any day.
Quesadillas are like a Mexican grilled cheese. Flour tortillas filled with cheese and then toasted on each side until the outside if crisp and the inside is fully of melty cheese and meat. They are a great dinner idea for kids and adults on Cinco de Mayo, make a few and serve with chips and salsa.
Crispy, cheesy chicken quesadillas are good for lunch, snack, or dinner. Comfort food at it's best!
