Enchilada, taco, fajita – 6 Mexican recipes to take home
Mexican cuisine is known for its spicy, fiery and aromatic dishes. We have interpreted the most popular Mexican recipes in a varied way: crispy fajita, tasty tacos or delicious enchilada – here you get the best insight into Mexico’s culinary soul.
1. Fajita with chicken breast, vegetables and cheese
A fajita traditionally consists of a tortilla flat cake filled with beef and chilli. In the meantime, however, fajitas are also very popular with chicken. This recipe shows how flexible this meal can be. In our case we make a tortilla package, baked in a pan and decorated with a delicious vegetable and chicken filling. Due to the baking time in the oven, the end result is wonderfully crispy on the outside and still remains juicy on the inside. To top it off, the tortilla package is neatly filled with cheese – so melted cheddar and mozzarella flow out of the crispy tortilla when cut. A dream!

6. Enchilada, filled with minced meat, rice and kidney beans
Casseroles are particularly popular when the outside temperature is low because they warm the body from the inside. In addition to the classic casserole recipes such as lasagne, pasta or potato casserole, there is another extremely delicious, albeit fiery alternative: enchiladas. For our enchilada, creamy-fiery sauce, spicy minced meat, rice and kidney beans are rolled in tortillas, poured with even more fiery-creamy sauce and topped with cheese. This special casserole belongs in every personal recipe book.

Fiery, colorful and spicy – once you have found a taste for Mexican cuisine, you will forever succumb to its charm. Which sample should it be first: fajita, tacos or enchiladas? Whichever Mexican recipe you choose, eating it will feel like you are in Mexico.
