I absolutely LOVE mexican food and these recipes sound truly fantastic. I love how all the zesty and exotic flavours meld so well together and literally all food groups are covered. They take quite a bit of effort to prepare but they are so worth it, especially if you have guests round. It's a great "help yourself" dinner and the best bit is eating with your hands. Thanks for sharing!

That chipotle chicken looks fantastic@ I absolutely love traditional mexican food, the only problem is that a lot of it is very heavy and fattening, and I really try to eat food in the least processed way possible. Consequently I don't frequently eat Mexican food. I'm glad I saw these recipes though!

Amazing recipes! I just want to prepare them right now! I want some tacos, maybe I can even prepare vegetarian tacos with some sauce and a lot of vegetables, that could surprise many people in for example a reunion or meeting, something healhy, foreign, and nice, perfect for any situation

My favorite fact of the mexican food is that it is made mainly with corn instead of normal flour, which is very characteristic as well the spicy flavor and the use of spicy ingredients like chipotle and other, that makes mexican food a delight for everybody and many places have taken advantage of this serving mexican dishes in their establishments

I have some other ideas for Mexican recipes, I mean, you can prepare anything as long as you use the right ingredients that bring good nutrients to the body like vegetables and whole grains, you can prepare some healthy tacos using little oil and a lot of vegetable instead of meat, or how about using some tofu, surely that would be delicious!
