    Yay! Mexican food is only second to Asian food for my very favorite foods ever. I’m excited to try some of these recipes out. :)

    1. Thanks Katie! I do love Asian foods too! Maybe I’ll do a Chinese New Year Round up next year :)

      Let me know if you try any of these out!

  3. I’m drooling from this collection!

  4. Great post! Thank you for featuring my crunchwrap supreme–it is my most popular post on the blog! :)

    1. Of course they are popular! Look how delicious they look! I love crunch wraps from taco bell, but always feel a little guilty getting them cause the cost and health factors. If I make them at home I feel a little less badly about it :)

  5. We just had mexican for dinner… and suddenly I’m craving it all over again. My favorite kind of food ever :)

  6. Hi I have to tell you that I don’t recognize any of that food as Mexican , theirs a difference between tex mex and Mexican food .

    1. I wouldn’t call any of it “Tex Mex” as I’ve never eaten Mexican food from Texas… maybe California Mexican ;)

    Hello everyone…whenever I’m off I love to have Mexican night…
    my husband & kids love it…I usually fix…Spanish rice,enchiladas, taco salads,tacos with all the fixings

  8. You do realize that is not mexican food right?

    1. Sorry that you don’t feel like these are Mexican food. I’ve been to lots of “mexican” restaurants that serve many of these dishes.
