25 Tasty Tex-Mex Dinners Your Family Will Love

There is something about the warm weather that gets me craving Tex Mex food. I love the spicy peppers, fresh salsa, and cool guacamole and how they combine in one way or another to make the most delicious meal. It doesn’t matter if is vegetarian or meat based, a great Tex Mex meal is fresh, spicy and is always accompanied, in my house anyway, by a side of chips and salsa. Of course, on the side there is always a great margarita or glass of sangria, something fresh and fruity to wash it all down. So, join me in the Tex Mex spirit and make one of these hot and bubbly Tex Mex dinners tonight!
