There's a reason why Taco Tuesday has become a weekly tradition for so many families - they're easy, there's infinite variations & they're fun to make! To make these Mexican food staples, add cooked ground beef or chicken with taco seasoning, then fill soft or hard taco shells with the meat, shredded lettuce, diced tomatoes, grated cheese, your choice of salsa or guacamole and you're done! If you want a vegan option, you you can substitute meat with yams, mushrooms, beans, quinoa and more!
Quesadillas are quick, easy and tasty! Heat a tortilla on a skillet, sprinkle shredded cheese on one half, and fold it over. Cook until the cheese melts and the tortilla is crispy. You can add cooked chicken, sautéed vegetables, or even beans for extra flavor.
Or you can do the same and instead of using a skillet, add your ingredients to your tortilla and heat using a microwave until the cheese has melted. Pre-shredded cheese makes this recipe incredibly easy!
Homemade salsa is easy to make and adds a burst of flavor to any dish. Blend together ripe tomatoes, onions, jalapeños, cilantro, lime juice, salt, and pepper until you get your desired consistency. Adjust the ingredients to taste and serve with tortilla chips or as a topping for tacos and quesadillas.
Chiles Rellenos are basically roasted and stuffed poblano peppers. After roasting the peppers, carefully remove the skin and make a small slit to remove the seeds. Stuff the peppers with cheese or a meat filling, then dip them in beaten egg and fry until golden brown. Serve with tomato sauce or salsa.
