10 Mexican Recipes With A Delicious Twist

We’ve rounded up a few of our favorite Mexican dishes, with a bit of a twist.

Easy Spanish Rice

If it’s taco night in your house, skip the pre-fab rice package, ‘cause all you need are four easy ingredients to add to your typical rice prep that will totally transform your side dish. The first thing you’re going to want to do is use chicken stock to cook your rice; trust us, it adds way more flavor than water. After that, all you need are tomato sauce, green chiles and taco seasoning… and that’s it! Get the easy recipe here!

Churro Chex Mix

Churro Chex mix. So easy and amazing. If you are fans of savory Chex mix (gotta love that salty goodness), you have to give this sweet version a shot. The cereals are first mixed in a sweet and sticky, caramel-esque sauce, then covered with a cinnamon sugar mixture and baked to golden perfection. The sweet and crispy finished product will have everyone raving, so try it out and see if it doesn’t just become your new favorite! Get the full recipe here!

Mexican Corn Salad

This dish – with it’s awesome Mexican flavors – pretty much single-handedly made us super excited to eat our veggies. Really, it’s not hard to get excited about this recipe because it’s ridiculously refreshing with its sweet pops of corn, creamy Cotija crumbles, and zesty, spicy flavors that round everything out perfectly.
