15 Amazing Mexican Recipes {Authentic & Tex-Mex}

As I’ve shared before my husband and I are crazy about Mexican food; the real authentic Mexican recipes! There are a few ‘American-Mexican’ recipes we love but typically we are creating recipes that we’ve fallen in love with as we spent a few Summers living in Mexico as newlyweds working with some of our missionary friends. We also spent over six years living just miles from the border and even traveled across for dinner some evenings! Now that we have a family, even our boys love Mexican food and one of their favorite all-time foods is simple “cheesy’ beans and rice. Go figure, of all the things we cook in our home it’s the staple of many Mexican households. Don’t let our blonde hair and blue eyes deceive you, we are Spanish-speaking, hispanic food lovers!

{Please excuse the poor quality of some of my older posts below, it’s very humbling looking back as you grow as a blogger. I didn’t want to include many but my husband strongly encouraged me to, to show everyone where I’ve come in photography skills that it might encourage you to keep plugging away as well if you feel like a novice photographer as well!}
