When somebody asks you if you want Mexican food, the answer is always yes. Even if you’re like my charmingly English husband who calls all Mexican food fajitas, it’s still gonna be awesome. Spicy, meaty, cheesy. There’s just so much awesome. And with Cinco de Mayo right around the corner, baby you better get ready. Here are a dozen recipes for you to love.
Bacon-Wrapped Jalapeno Poppers are so many kinds of awesome I can’t even begin to explain. There have never ever been leftovers.
It’s almost time for picnic season. Bring Southwest Pasta Salad and be everybody’s favorite person.
I want to eat all the Buffalo Chicken Tacos by myself. Back up off my spicy chicken tacos, yo!
Spicy Chicken Chili is the perfect thing to make a lot of people outrageously happy all at once.
We don’t wait for a special occasion to make My Mom’s Tacos. We actually eat them about every other week. Last time Geoff ate his with half a scorpion pepper. He’s insane.
Vegetarians love Mexican food, too. Feed them Mexican Lasagna and they’ll love you forever.
Jalapeno Deviled Eggs are a spicy version of one of the most classic potluck dishes ever. Give the church ladies a surprise!
Chili with Gnocchi is a great way to stretch a small amount of meat, and a great way to burn your mouth off. Go ahead and make it ridiculously spicy. What have you got to lose?
You’re going to need a drink to keep your face from setting itself on fire. Water is useless against chilis. A Passion Fruit Margarita will satisfy all your tropical drink needs.
In case you need to take this Mexican action to the grill, you can always bring out Spicy Southwest Burgers. Cheeseburgers are my power animal.
Tequila’s not only for margaritas. Geoff also made this Mexican Bird of Paradise cocktail with tequila and pineapple juice. Sometimes experiments turn into something awesome.
Please everyone with these Picky Eater Chicken Enchiladas. Even I’ll eat them without picking anything out.
Seriously, just go and eat all the Mexican food you can get your hands on before it’s too late! No excuses!
