menu of the week

lately i have tried so many great mexican dishes from pinterest i decided to do a bit of a round up on my blog. bon appetit! or should i say ole!

sour cream chicken enchiladas
healthy turkey tacos
chipotle mango bbq chicken salad
light mexican chicken casserole
turkey enchilada casserole

ok as i linked all of these recipes i realized these can barely be passed as mexican food and are surely not traditional. we americans sure love our casseroles when attempting mexican. well at least the family gobbled it up.
