Here are a bunch of our favorite Mexican-style recipes just right for a celebration.
These genius Mexican Pepper Jack Baked Cauli-Tots from Cupcakes and Kale Chips shine a whole new light on an old family favorite. Awesome doesn’t begin to describe them. And they have just a bit of a kick from the Pepper Jack cheese.
It only takes minutes to make an over-the-top delicious Mexican main course. Try these Shrimp and Habanero Quesadillas for an easy, elegant dish that will impress the most discerning guest. The Habanero Cheddar takes things from good to OMG!
