The Food Charlatan

Mexican/Tex Mex Recipes

All the Mexican recipes and Tex Mex recipes you need for Taco Tuesday, Cinco de Mayo, or basically any day of the week because tacos are life!

My sister took her kids on vacation to Mexico, and they went a little off the beaten path. Several days in, her young son complained, “All they have to eat here is MEXICAN FOOD!!!” Poor kid just wanted some pizza and mac and cheese I think.

Well, I can’t relate, AT ALL. Mexican food is the best. Here you will find lots of ideas for when you get the craving for either authentic Mexican recipes or Tex Mex recipes.

My absolute favorite taco filling is this Traditional Tejano Carne Guisada. Eat it with these killer Tejano Pinto Beans. If you are craving something sweet, try out these Mexican Hot Chocolate Cookies that are spiced with cinnamon. For something lighter, try out my Best Taco Salad recipe! Finish your meal off with this incredible Tres Leches Cake if you know what’s good for you. It’s so different and fun!
