A delicious guacamole that my mom used to make during the summer days when mangos were all over our hometown. It's sweet, tangy, and, like any good Mexican guacamole, spicy.
Chicken thighs are used in this fajita recipe, but boneless, skinless breasts could be used instead. Be careful not to overcook, as the result could be rather dry chicken. Serve with warm flour tortillas, salsa, and sour cream.
This recipe is similar to refried beans without the frying. These slow cooker beans will go well with any of your favorite Mexican dinners. For faster cooking, soak beans overnight.

Mexican Blackened Corn
This charred corn dish is perfect as a side, as a topping on a taco, mixed into a salad, with quinoa, or even served cold. I discovered a similar dish at the Amigo Room inside The Ace Hotel in Palm Springs, CA. This was a staple of my diet in California, and since I've moved to New York, I set out to perfect their recipe and put my spin on it. This is my version; I hope you enjoy it!
Rush Hour Refried Beans
I love refried beans but don't always have the time to work with dried beans. This recipe uses canned beans and still tastes like I spent all day on it. Sometimes I crumble bacon on top of the finished product.
Jicama Mango Slaw
I tasted this in a Mexican restaurant on Friday and made it at home on Saturday! Crunchy, refreshing, and healthy!
Grilled Fish Tacos with Chipotle-Lime Dressing
I came up with this recipe when I couldn't find good directions for grilled fish tacos. I liked the chipotle-lime combination in a dip I once tried so I imitated it here. Choose toppings to suit your taste, or include typical accompaniments such as salsa fresca, cabbage, a squeeze of lime juice, and chopped cilantro.

This fruity and spicy salsa is yummy on just about everything from chips to barbequed chicken, tacos, and even tofu! By the way, pineapple mojitos are a great accompaniment!
