I really love Mexican food. The flavors, the aromas, the simplicity of fresh ingredients coming together in a colorful display. I have many happy memories from my childhood of devouring homemade nachos, fajitas, or tacos and only buying lunch at school on the occasional “Mexican-haystack” lunch day. Still today, nothing hits the spot like a fiesta-style entrée! Unfortunately, the freshness of flavor and ingredients is often lost under a pound of cheese, a cup of sour cream, and a side of heartburn. The food is actually quite simple and fresh, and not to mention easy to whip up!
One of my favorite meals to make is a Mexican Salad with tons of flavor and fresh ingredients! I combine elements of my mom’s Mexican meals growing up, and add in some of my own favorite toppings to make a delicious weeknight meal! This “Mexican Mix” is great because it melds the tomatoes, meat, onion, beans, and spices into one delicious blend that’s so simple to put over greens. As always, I make a bunch of leftovers so I can enjoy it again the next day for a quick lunch. While it’s tempting to just hit up Chipotle, a customized, homemade Mexican Meal is easier than you might think.
