This is an unusual salad that everyone in my office loves. I get requests for it time and time again.
Chicken Breasts

Instant Pot® Salsa Chicken

Rating: Unrated
An Instant Pot® makes an easy weeknight meal even easier! Frozen chicken breasts are combined with taco seasoning and salsa for a tasty Mexican-themed meal. You can use the meat for tacos, burrito bowls, or as a topping for baked potatoes. So many possibilities! I used this the first night for chicken quesadillas. The second night I used it as a topping for baked potatoes with shredded cheese, pickled jalapenos, and sour cream.
Breakfast Quiche

Spinach Quiche with Chicken

Rating: Unrated
Quiche works very well. Add seasonings of your family's choice for more variety. Use ham, bacon, or whatever protein. This quiche needs flavor boosters, so use your spice cabinet. Easily make this a Tex-Mex dish with diced green chiles and a touch of cumin. You could also add crumbled freshly cooked bacon to add more flavor. I served this with sliced avocado and tomatoes for a perfect light dinner.

Keto Tex-Mex Ground Beef Casserole

Rating: Unrated
Following a low-carb way of eating doesn't have to mean that you can't enjoy tacos anymore. This casserole has all the flavor of tacos, and if you like, pork rinds for crunch. For extra flavor, garnish with avocados, sour cream, sliced olives, shredded lettuce, or pork rinds.

Tex-Mex Enchiladas

Rating: Unrated

These are authentic Tex-Mex enchiladas as taught to me by a lady originally from Chihuahua, Mexico who then added a bit of Texas. They are super easy to put together and taste incredible! Watch out though, because there is nothing low-fat about them! I like to assemble these enchiladas in the morning or night before, come home and pop them in the oven. When cold, add 10 more minutes to the baking time. Leave out the onions for picky eaters.
