Break out the skillet! These sizzlin’-hot fajitas, made with garden-fresh veggies and chunks of white meat chicken, are the perfect way to spice up your summer dinner menu. Colorful, crunchy red peppers, cilantro and chili powder are nutritious additions that add zesty, authenthic south-of-the-border flavor. Got gluten-free guests? Skip the white flour tortillas and serve the corn kind instead.

The word quesadilla translates to “cheesy little thing”—but not all recipes require heavy amounts of the gooey, melted stuff. In this version, black beans are mashed and combined with corn kernels, tomato salsa, herbs and a little cheddar then grilled, not fried, to crispy perfection.
Serve rice chips with a side of mango salsa for a festive and flavorful snack at your next party! Fresh fruit is cubed and tossed with flax oil and lime, then spiced just slightly with a sprinkling of chili powder and crushed red pepper. This cool-hot combination pairs perfectly with grilled meat or fish, or use it to top tacos, nachos or any of your favorite south-of-the-border dishes.
Bummed out because you’re thinking a night out to celebrate Cinco de Mayo has to mean a huge Paleo diversion? Not necessarily! You can enjoy Mexican food with no trouble at all, just by making a few changes to menu options– or even better, host a party yourself.
Is there a picky eater in your family? A vegetarian? A vegan? Everyone can be happy at dinner on taco night! Start off by sautéing some veggies—use fresh favorites or take this opportunity to “clean out” your refrigerator’s produce drawer. From here, you can go meatless or brown up some beef or buffalo meat—your choice. Serve with seasoned brown rice and toppings your troop loves! I like to lay out whole wheat tortillas, local raw goat cheese, avocado, shredded cabbage and chopped tomato.
Spice up ordinary taco nights with a twist on everyone’s favorite Mexican dish. This enchilada casserole is meat free but full of authentic flavor—with corn tortillas, sautéed veggies, black beans and vegan cheese, layered and baked to bubbly perfection. Sprinkle with pepitas and hemp seeds for a protein boost!
