Mexican Monday! or Any Other Day in the Week :)

25 tacos
30 min

When feeding a big group what comes to mind for you? For me its Mexican food! I mean who doesn't love Mexican? Kids and adult a like, and with so much variety, there is something for everyone. So when it was our turn to cook for 10 on our family getaway you know that was where I was going!

On the menu:


  1. chips with the best mango peach salsa EVER! and trust me I have done my fair share of trying salsa. Also, of course my famous guac had to be included (see previous posts for recipe)
  2. chicken fajitas
  3. beef tacos
  4. re-fried beans

For the fajitas, I used onion, bell peppers, tomatoes, chicken breast and cilantro.

I started by sauteing the the onions and the peppers in a pan with some olive oil on medium heat.

Then I sliced the chicken and added it on top of the sauteing veggies.

I diced up some tomatoes and threw them on with salt and pepper to taste.

Once the chicken was just about done, I added a table spoon of salsa and cilantro.

Next was the beef taco meat which required the same ingredients except switch out the chicken for ground beef.

I diced the onion, tomato, pepper and put them in a pan with the ground beef. Simmered on medium heat.

Once again, when it was just about done cooking I added cilantro and a spoonful of salsa.
