Mexican food you can make at home

Mexican food is delicious and hearty, and it makes a great alternative for those days when you can’t be bothered with cooking for several hours on end. There are many specialities that are part of this type of cuisine that can be prepared in under an hour, which means that they are the perfect choices for those nights when you get back home, and you’re too tired to cook something complicated.

There are several mentions that must be made in relation to Mexican food, though. Some dishes aren’t particularly healthy, and there are some greasy meals that might have too many calories for someone who is trying to keep tabs on the way he or she looks and feels.

Regardless, there are some meal variations that you can get back to when you’re looking to prepare a dish or a snack for your family. Besides, many of the ingredients can be replaced so that they are healthy. Let’s look at some ideas together.

Tacos

Sure, it might be a little challenging to make your own tacos, meaning the shells. But the fact is that it’s a rather rewarding experience, and the best thing about it is that you are going to be perfectly aware of the ingredients you will use.

As for fillings, you can use guacamole, healthy cheese, as well as meat or leftovers like falafels or crumbled vegetarian burgers. It stands to reason that adding several fresh veggies like cucumbers and pieces of lettuce will make the tacos even healthier.

Party food

If you know that you’re going to have several guests over and you want to impress them with your cooking skills, the best way to go about things is to consider making an enchilada casserole. Of course, there are many ingredients you can use depending on your nutritional needs, preferences, and lifestyle.

If you want your enchilada to be scrumptious, we recommend using a mushroom and chicken soup, as well as diced chillies, cheddar cheese, and a bit of onion and garlic. Some recipes call for six tortillas while others require eight, but it, of course, depends on the size of your pan, too.

Other party food that’s going to be wolfed down incredibly fast can range from taco bell-style Mexican pizza to chimichangas, fajitas, and of course, guacamole.

Quesadillas

There are several ways of making quesadillas. If you don’t know already, there’s an appliance called a quesadilla maker that can help you get them perfectly crispy and delicious. The cheese inside will melt and become gooey, and that’s what you’re looking for in a perfect quesadilla. The thing about this snack, or meal if that’s what it’s going to be for you, is that it’s very easy to prepare and takes little to no time. In about half an hour, you’re going to have a nutritious meal for your whole family. What other types of food possibly beat that?
