If you are starting in the morning and perhaps planning a whole day of Mexican food then you can consider Chilaquiles. Far from the typical option of cereal, these lightly fried tortillas are cut into quarters. You can then sprinkle them with both green and red salsa. You can complement this choice with either fried eggs or pulled chicken and they can be served with beans that have been refried too. 


Of course, the main dish for your Mexican menu has to be chili. You’ll just need to make sure that you use the right product to make your chili. Texas Chili bowl or a similar product is a great choice and is popular for use in restaurants. As such, you know this is a high-quality option. A big question is how spicy to make your chili and this largely depends on personal preference. Some people love it when their chili singes their tongue. 


If you don’t want to spend too long in the kitchen then this is a great choice. There are packs you can get or you can blend your own spices to ensure that the chicken or steak inside the wraps has a lot of flavors. You can fill the fajitas with lots of different things too. For instance, you might want to opt for some tomatoes and lettuce if you’re trying to make these more healthy. You can even replace the wraps with lettuce for a more refreshing choice.  


Another fast choice for your menu would be tacos. Simply throw the mince and other ingredients in a pan and add them to the taco shells once cooked. Add cheese and anything else that you want on top. There are lots of ways to make your tacos tastier. For instance, you can throw some chilies into the mix. It just depends on how spicy you like your dishes.

Finally, you might want to think about trying enchiladas. Arguably one of the most popular Mexican dishes, they are similar to fajitas however, they are smothered with sauce and cheese and baked in the oven. They can be eaten on their own or with a variety of sides. Enchiladas do take a little longer to prepare compared with fajitas but some people find that they pack in a lot more flavor and are more filling. As such, they will be a fantastic option if you have a larger family. 

In Conclusion

We hope this helps you plan an awesome day of Mexican food for you and your family. There are lots of other possibilities for dishes to explore as well. So do make sure that you research all the possibilities before settling on the perfect menu.
