You can’t have a Mexican fiesta without some tequila.

Fresh Peach Margarita 

Peach Marg

It’s a cocktail that you won’t be able to stop drinking. If you aren’t a big fan of the taste of tequila, the recipe is flexible so you can add more peaches and orange juice to hide the tequila.

APPETIZERS:

Mexican Street Corn Nachos

Mexican Street Corn Nachos

This is a good appetizer to incorporate with others because it is vegetarian. You can add meat to it but I think it’s already packed with so much flavor it wouldn’t need meat. It’s so mouth watering. Plus it is super easy to make!

Total time: 25 mins

Servings: 8

Traditional Tejano Pinto Beans 

Beans

Mexican beans are my absolute guilty pleasure. You can serve this appetizer with warm flour tortillas, chips, or just eat it as it is. This recipe will be a keeper.

Total Time: So…so very long, but it’s worth it!

Servings: 10-12

MAIN DISHES:

Oven-Fried Chicken Chimichangas 

Chimmy

Chimichangas! If you are a sucker for fried foods, this one will blow all the other fried foods out of the water. Pssst… it’s not even fried, it’s baked. Which means, it’s healthier but still tastes like it’s fried! You’re welcome.

Slow Cooker Chicken Enchilada Soup

Ench Soup

I like this dish because it’s lighter. You can save it for the next few days and it’ll still taste like it did the first day. It’s also a great recipe to make on cold weather days.
