5 Favorite Mexican Food Recipes

Beef Tacos

My family and I are so excited about Cinco de Mayo coming up this week.  I started going through my recipes to figure out what to fix.  If you will be celebrating Cinco de Mayo as well, I wanted to share some of my favorites in case you need some ideas.

Beef Tacos

If you have been following my blog for any length of  time, you might remember tacos are my favorite food group.  No list of my favorite Mexican food recipes would be complete if it didn’t include this one for Shredded Beef Tacos.  To me they taste just like the beef tacos you get at good Mexican food restaurants in Arizona.  The beef is shredded, tender, and so flavorful.

Everything But The Kitchen Sink Salsa

Of course you need salsa to go on the tacos, and Everything But the Kitchen Sink Salsa is a family favorite.  It is a little bit spicy, and chunky, and so tasty.  I could probably make this one in my sleep, I’ve made it so many times and will be making it again this week.

Shrimp Enchiladas With Poblano Chile Sauce

If you are looking for something a little more unusual than the traditional tacos and beans for Cinco de Mayo, I highly recommend this recipe for Shrimp Enchiladas with Poblano Chile Sauce.  There are so many flavors going on inside and outside the enchiladas, it is a fiesta in your mouth!  I am not a big shrimp fan, but I absolutely love these.

Chipotle Salsa

I always like to put out at least 2 different kinds of salsa when we have friends over as everyone has their favorites.  Chipotle Salsa happens to be my favorite.  I love the smoky flavor.

Pork Carnitas

Last but not least are these Pork Carnitas.  You will love the depth of flavor in these tacos.  It is a super easy recipe that is made in the crock pot, perfect for a busy day.  It is my go to recipe for carnitas.

I have so many more favorite Mexican food recipes, but didn’t want to overwhelm you.  If you need more ideas, check out the Mexican food category on the right.  Whether you eat out or make dinner at home, I wish you a happy and delicious Cinco de Mayo!
