I am sharing some of the Mexican food recipes that my family and I make at home. We have shared these Mexican food recipes with each other and now I am going to share them with you. Many of these recipes are easy to make and can be done on a budget or for a family gathering.
Mexican Food Recipes – Main Dishes
From my sister-in-law (unknown source of where she got it from)
2 pounds of grated cheddar cheese
2 cans of cream of chicken soup
1 can of chopped green chilies
8 ounce package of sour cream
1 chicken cooked and boned
1 package of corn tortillas (12 count)
Put the cream of chicken soup, sour cream, and half of the green chilies in a pan and heat. In a skillet, put oil and cook tortillas until soft, then salt them. Fill tortillas with about three-fourths of the cheese, chicken, and the rest of the green chilies and roll them up. Place in a 9×13 inch pan and cover with soup mixture. Heat until hot through, about 30 minutes in a 350-degree oven. Sprinkle the rest of the cheese on top and melt.
From my mother who got it from a friend
1 package of Doritos (plain)
1 pound of hamburger meat
1 onion chopped
2 cans of mushroom soup
1 can of water
1 cup of grated cheese
1 can of Rotel tomatoes
1 can of Ranch Style Beans (optional)
1 can of sliced Black Olives (optional)
Bring soup, water, and tomatoes to boil. NOTE: If you are using the ranch style beans, place them in with the soup, water and tomatoes.
Cook the hamburger meat to brown with the onion.
Place a layer of Doritos into a casserole dish slightly crushed. Place a layer of the hamburger and onion mixture next, then a layer of the soup mixture. NOTE: The black olives will be placed next if you are using them in this casserole. Continue until you have used all the ingredients.
Top with cheese and bake in a 350-degree oven until cheese is melted.
