Mexican Fiesta Theme Dinner Ideas

More Mexican menu ideas could be a taco salad or taco bar. Place different taco ingredients in small bowls around the table. Let everyone make their own taco or taco salad.

Ohio Nachos

by Rami, (Jerusalem, Israel)

1. Shred 5 cups cheese.

2. Add cheese and hamburger meat to the tortilla chips.

3. Broil on high till cheese melts.

4. Add fresh corn on top for color and true Ohio taste.

You can dip the Ohio Nachos in sour cream , salsa, or a mix of both!!!!!! :)


Mexican Refried Beans Soup

by Deborah, (Newtown, Pennsylvania, USA)

We actually were served this at a restaurant. The kids LOVED it and it was incredibly easy to reverse engineer.

1 can refried beans (a brand you like)
chicken broth to taste
toppings (optional: shredded cheese, crunched up tortilla chips, cilantro, black olives, avocado slices, etc.)

Just place beans and enough broth to loosen it up into a soup in a small pot. Heat and serve with the topping of your choice. Ridiculously easy.

Mexican Spaghetti

by jessica, (Colorado)
1 family sized bag spaghetti
1 bag shredded mix cheese
1 big tub of daisy sour cream
1 stick of butter
1 can tomato sauce

Cook a family size bag of spaghetti noodles. While noodles cook make sauce. When noodles are done put in a glass casserole dish. Layer noodles, cheese, noodles, cheese in a large pan.

In a medium pan, melt the stick of butter, 1/2 of the big tub of daisy sour cream and the full can of tomato sauce. Bring it to boil slowly and when all mixed together and hot, pour sauce over noodles and cheese.

Cover dish and wait until cheese melts or put in oven at 350 degrees for 10 min.

It is so good and I have not seen a kid yet not like it and want more.

Prep your sugar cookie dough and roll out with a rolling pin. Use a large circle cutter or bottom of a glass that is a little larger than the bottom of your muffin tin. You'll be turning your muffin tin over and use the bottom.

Cut out circles and place around the bottom of the muffin tin. Bake until golden brown. Allow to cool and gently take off tin.
