15 Mexican Food Recipes

I was looking through my recipes today, and realized I have over 15 Mexican food recipes built up.  I live in New Mexico, so we have a fantastic bounty of Mexican food restaurants here, and I love trying to recreate classic Mexican dishes in my kitchen. 

I have compiled a list of my favorite Mexican food recipes that I have written, to date, for anyone who is craving good Mexican food!  Many of these recipes were taught to me by my mother, and the rest were inspired by dishes I have tried throughout New Mexico during my 29 years here.   New Mexican food isn’t Tex-Mex, and it varies from traditional Mexican food.  It is its own delicious hybrid, and I think you’re going to love the flavors. 

Most of the recipes are simple and easy enough to prepare, even for the novice cook.  All of 15 Mexican food recipes are homemade, using fresh, healthy and nourishing ingredients.  I am adding new Mexican Food Recipes frequently, so be sure to bookmark my page, or pin this post so you can check back for more great recipes! 

Do you love the cheesy, spicy, heart-warming taste of Mexican food?  From authentic red chili sauce, roasted tomato salsa to calabacitas, there is a recipe here to satisfy every Mexican food craving you have!
