I love this bean recipe.  Traditional refried beans can be loaded with lard and fat.  These are light and healthy but still full of flavor.

Love a Mexican casserole.  It is a scrumptious way to feed a bunch.  This hearty meal with satisfy everyone in your family.

I love the rainbow colors form fruit in this adorable dish.  What child wouldn’t go crazy for these.  While they may not be authentically Mexican, they would be a cute way to celebrate.

pineapple salsa

Cook Eat Paleo – Grilled Pineapple Salsa

Fresh pineapple is delicious but grill it and it develops the most incredible caramelized flavor.  It is perfect for a salsa.  This salsa would be delicious with chips or over an enchilada.

Garnish with a Lemon – Shrimp Tacos with Chipotle Cream

I have to admit, tacos are one of my favorite Mexican foods.   You can also eat a lot of shrimp for a little calories.  That is a win, win in my book.


The Gracious Pantry – Taco Chicken Zucchini Pasta

If you need a low carb option, this one is for you.  You’ll get all the flavor of a taco with the shell.


Lemons for Lulu – Turkey Tostada with Raspberry Chipotle Sauce

I love the ease of a tostada.  This is a quick and easy option that you can have on the table in no time.  If you can’t find a turkey tenderloin, use ground turkey instead.
