7 Mexican Recipes That Will Forever Change Dinner At Home

1. Pozole

Don't let the time commitment on this fantastically flavorful Mexican soup scare you. It's as easy as bringing water to a boil and letting it simmer away while you multitask on other things. With time, the meat will turn tender, soft, and buttery, the aromas will deepen

2. Mexican Rice

This easy recipe for Mexican rice is so full of flavor, it might even be better than any we've had from a Tex-Mex restaurant. The secret lies in the perfect balance of tomatoes, onions, and fresh cilantro, giving it a vibrant and rich taste.

3. Chicken Taco Torta

Made with rolls called bolillos or teleras, which are crusty-chewy on the outside with a soft and tender crumb, these sandwiches are piled high with all sorts of meats and cheeses. Often accompanied by a thick layer of rich refried beans, slices of avocado

4. Elote: Mexican Street Corn

Elote is an unbelievably popular antojito (little craving) that you can find sold on the street in Mexico. It's often served on a stick, though you could skip the skewer and make it the same way you'd boil or oven-bake regular corn on the cob.

5. Grilled Chicken Street Tacos

Nothing beats a street taco—super-juicy, tender grilled meat in a quick grab-and-go format, typically made possible by doubling up two smaller corn tortillas. This makes them easier to eat on the side of the street, in the car, anywhere!

6. Mexican Chicken Casserole

Filled with a creamy sauce, two kinds of cheese, and plenty of chicken, there’s something in this dish for everyone. While this is certainly not a super-authentic Mexican dish, it does combine lots of flavors and ingredients that will remind you of tacos

7. Chalupas

Chalupas are a classic Mexican street food snack that are crispy, savory, and fun to eat. Usually, chalupas are served like a tostada, but because we know you might be looking for the fluffy fry bread-like taco shell, we decided to create a version that was the best of both worlds.
