I've had this enchilada recipe for ages, it was passed down to me from my mother and is always a popular dish around my house. My husbands favorite casserole! :) Hope you enjoy as much as we do. A few notes: Sometimes I leave off the 2 cups of shredded chicken, and it is still yummy as can be. I usually double the green chiles and use "healthy request" soup and reduced fat sour cream. Also, we prefer corn tortillas in this dish, but use whatever you like. ENJOY!
A great versatile beef recipe that is sure to please- - perfect for entertaining & potlucks!! Just put the roast in the crock pot in the early morning with your favorite seasonings (see variations below), and by afternoon you will have delicious melt-in-your-mouth beef, ready for a traditional sit-down roast beef dinner, or your favorite sandwich! Leftovers are fabulous!
This is a spectacular layered dip to serve out of a glass trifle dish or casserole. Goes together in minutes, and can be made ahead. It's great served either hot or at room temperature with warm tortilla chips (we like it with Tortilla Scoops) and an ice cold beer or margarita. Optional: Add strips of grilled carne asada or pollo asada and layer in a dish for a killer nachos supreme! Tip: I use recipe #117797 for the seasoning.
Holy moly this is some great guacamole! Freshness is key here--you want to use the best quality & freshest ingredients you can find for a great guacamole. Helpful Tip: The addition of white vinegar is optional--it helps retain the bright green color of your guacamole (may store in an airtight container in the fridge, for up to two days). Serve your handmade guacamole with warm tortilla chips and an ice cold beer or margarita, and your favorite Mexican meal (tacos, enchiladas, fajitas, chile rellenos). Enjoy!
This is an uncooked tomato salsa (salsa fresca) that's great to make while fresh tomatoes are in season. Stir pico de gallo into chopped/mashed avocadoes to make guacamole (see my recipe #112059), or serve as is with warm tortilla chips and Tex-Mex food (tacos, enchiladas, quesadillas, burritos, chiles rellenos). From LHJ. ENJOY!
Beans are a part of everday eating in the Southwest. Frijoles are served either soupy in broth or mashed and fried (frijoles refritos- or refried beans). This mouthwatering recipe features both variations. Tip: If you want the beans extra spicy, do not remove the seeds from the chiles. Prep time does not include soaking. From Ladies Home Journal.
Delicious, fresh tasting rice dish. The secret is to lightly brown the rice, and use fresh squeezed lemon juice. This is our family favorite Spanish Rice recipe. From my daughter. Hope you enjoy it as much as we do!
Wonderful potluck dish or family dinner. Enjoy! You can also make this with shredded chicken. It's good served warm or at room temperature. The garnishes are optional, pick and choose which are your favorites.
Great tasting & simple to make, these enchiladas are a real family pleaser! Wonderful made with Shredded Beef recipe #269126, also very tasty made with browned ground beef or shredded chicken. Serve with a side of refried beans and garnish with sliced black olives, green onion, guacamole and sour cream as desired. Yum!
Filled with Mexican Queso Blanco (a firm-textured mild fresh cheese) and slathered in red chile sauce (or "gravy," as they say in Texas), these are delicious and easy to make. Recipe from Ladies Home Journal.
An authentic Mexican recipe from the book "Mexican Cookery" by Barbara Hansen. This delectable shredded beef is perfection! Wonderful served stuffed into a warm flour tortilla. Recipe is easily doubled, or tripled. Could also be made in the crock pot.
Awesome! If you love guacamole, try this lighter, more tangy version made with fresh green tomatillos and avocado! We really love this salsa verde. Serve with simple grilled foods like carne asada or fajitas, or with a bowl of tostadas chips. And, green sauce is great stirred in to scrambled eggs recipe #456108. From "Zarela's Veracruz: Mexico's Simplest Cuisine" by Zarela Martinez. Enjoy!
Watermelon syrup with fresh strawberries, lime, cantaloupe or honeydew balls and fresh mint come together in this refreshing dessert/salad/drink. Perfect on a hot day! Serve well-chilled in little plastic cups. From Torani Syrups of San Francisco. Makes 72 ounces.
These frothy margarita slushes get their pink tint from watermelon chunks! You can easily make this a virgin cocktail; just sub orange juice for the alcohol. Adapted from Martha Stewart's "Healthy and Quick" Cookbook.
Wonderfully refreshing!!! No tex-Mex feast would be complete without a pitcher of this traditional red-wine thirst quencher with citrus. Prep time does not include chilling. Adapted from Ladies Home Journal.
Rich and decadent, from deep in the heart of Texas! This truly is the absolute BEST chocolate sheet cake I've ever eaten!! The frosting features Mexican Ibarra chocolate (which is flavored with almonds and cinnamon), Texas pecans, and whipping cream. YUM! Note: A sheetcake is a long and flat single layer cake. This is a very well written recipe, and is relatively easy to prepare--and even easier to enjoy! :) I like mine with a scoop of vanilla ice cream on the side. Courtesy Ladies Home Journal.
