Mexican-Style Shredded Pork
This is an amazing shredded pork recipe, similar to what you'd eat in a rice bowl or enchilada at a Mexican restaurant. It's so easy, just simmer it in the slow cooker all day so it's ready to enjoy when you arrive home. I serve it over lime and cilantro rice with Cheddar cheese, salsa, guacamole, and a dollop of sour cream.

Cowboy Skillet Casserole
This zesty cowboy skillet is made up of meat, beans, peppers, and topped with sweet corn bread. A great, fast family pleaser or potluck dish. Depending on the crowd you're trying to please, you may want to jazz it up: Bulk up the meat mixture with extra veggies, add Cheddar cheese, and jalapeño peppers. You can also add chili powder to the corn bread.
Delicious Black Bean Burritos

Savory and spicy pork chorizo with garlic, vinegar, oregano, and red pepper. This can be made with ground beef as well. To cook, crumble in a skillet and fry.
Mexican Rice with Bell Pepper
This is an excellent Mexican rice recipe with bell peppers (not to be confused with Spanish rice) that I make as a side to serve with all of my Mexican dishes. The key is cooking the rice properly and using good quality chicken broth or stock.
This is a lot like a lasagna, only Mexican-style! Serve like a pie and garnish with sour cream, salsa, lettuce and tomato. Make sure you like spicy foods before trying this one. It's hot!
