Mexican food is my favorite. Well, honestly, I should say Mexican-ish food is my favorite. I like anything that would fall under that general category: Tex-Mex, authentic Mexican food, Southwestern food…if you can add cheese and extra guacamole to it, I’m going to like it. Cinco de Mayo is coming up, and I know those of you in the Midwest who don’t have easy access to great Mexican restaurants are going to be looking for some yummy Mexican recipes to make at home. 🙂 You’ve come to the right place! I’ve collected 21 recipes that fall under the VERY broad category of Mexican food. A few would be considered authentic. The rest of them are just plain delicious. Enjoy!

This Tamale Pork is really just reminiscent of a tamale. It ALL cooks in the crockpot, which is the best thing EVER. We’ve had this several times now and it just gets better and better each time. This is a fantastic slow cooker meal!
