Hi! Need some ideas for a good Mexican meal. Not enchiladas, tacos, chile verde, or burritos! Thinking along the lines of a good beef or chicken main dish that would pair well with spanish rice and beans. Would love any suggestions you might have! Thanks:D

Flavorful beef and pork meatballs simmer in a spicy tomato broth in this authentic Mexican dish. Serve with warm tortillas and a salad to make this a complete meal.

We had these last night. They were good, not too hot, but a little hard to work with. I left a review.

Hmm, I've never had Albondigas before. I know my parents like them. Thanks for the recommendation!

Don't know if you have access to a grillor skewers, but these are very good. Use any veg, onions, etc. you might have on hand or just skewer the chicken.
Feb. 8, 2013 1:29 pm
I do have access to skewers:) However, no grill. I guess I could try pan frying them....Marinade sounds yum, though, no matter how the chicken is cooked!
Feb. 8, 2013 2:20 pm
you could evn "scramble " them- no skewers- yum- these sound great- saveur has the best ideas

Good idea, nanny, just stir-fry everything together. With the chicken cut into small bites, the marinade flavors will have a chance to really be flavorful!

While this tamale pie has very little to do with its south-of-the-border namesake, it's a really delicious recipe all the same.

Brings back memories! The mom of one of my friends would always send an extra piece of tamale pie with her daughter whenever she had it for lunch at school. I need to try this soon! We don't have access to cornbread mix, could I just use any cornbread recipe?

i don't use the mix - i make my own cornbread- works great

This is a Mexican version of the Shepherd's Pie that is so popular in the UK. I decided to try this one night when I did not have any mashed potatoes. Its cheap, quick and easy...and my kids loved it! Serve with a tossed green salad for a great family meal!

Or this. I just browned beef and onions, used my taco seasoning mix, some salsa. Put in pan, spread made up corn muffin mix on top and baked. You could add in peppers, beans, corn, whatever.

Tender chunks of chicken breast simmer in a savory, creamy sauce with a smoky chipotle kick. This is great with a side of Mexican rice.
