Cinco de Mayo is a month away. I thought that the best way to celebrate the countdown was to focus on some of my favorite Mexican recipes. My Smashed Pinto Beans made in my Instant Pot are at the top of my list!
Cinco de Mayo
If you like the Crunchwrap Supreme from a local fast food chain, then you’ll absolutely love this Tasty 7 Layer Quesadilla Wrap. While it’s somewhat of a copycat, it’s so much better. Tasty 7 Layer Quesadilla Wrap is not at all doughy, and you can actually taste the yummy ingredients!
Why buy taco seasoning at the grocery store when you can easily make your own? It’s so much better than those little packets, and you know what’s in it!
Caesar Salad was invented in Tijuana, Mexico in the 1920’s. It’s a wonderful dish on its own or paired with any number of toppings or entrees. What makes a great Caesar Salad is a great dressing and freshly made croutons, both of which are quick and easy to make.
Frijoles Negros Rotos are also known as Smashed Black Beans. They are not only delicious on their own, but also outstanding in black bean dip and in quesadillas. As an added bonus, the Smashed Black Beans are super easy to make.
Antojitos means “little cravings”. It is typically sold as Mexican street food to be eaten at other than a main meal. If you serve Mini Antojitos as an appetizer, be prepared for them to literally fly off the plate. What’s even better – they can be made ahead of time, frozen, and reheated.
