Quick Mexican Recipes

Healthier Mexican favorites ready in 30 minutes or less.
We love the zesty flavor of traditional Mexican food, but Mexican recipes can often be loaded with hidden calories, fat and sodium. Our lighter recipes for Mexican favorites, such as burritos, guacamole, huevos rancheros, fajitas, margaritas and more, are healthier Mexican meals full of fiber-rich vegetables, lean meats and spicy sauces. Whip up one of these fresh and healthy Mexican recipes and have a healthy side dish, dinner or drink ready in under 30 minutes.

Coctel de Camarones
This classic Mexican shrimp cocktail is usually served as a starter, but makes a quick, refreshing main dish on a busy night. Add some of your favorite hot sauce for extra kick. You can eat it immediately or chill it for up to 4 hours if you prefer it colder. Serve with: Warm corn tortillas or cheese quesadillas and your favorite hot sauce......

Steak Burritos
Here’s a burrito inspired by San Francisco’s super burritos that come packed with meat, beans, rice, cheese, guacamole and salsa. We’ve kept this home-style version a bit simpler to make and a whole lot healthier with brown rice, whole-wheat tortillas and a more reasonable serving size. We recommend wrapping it in foil—the traditional way to serve it—so you can pick the burrito up and eat it without it falling apart, peeling back the foil as you go. Serve with a cold beer and vinegar-dressed slaw........

Tijuana Torta
A Mexican-style torta is just like a burrito, except the “wrapper” is a hollowed-out roll instead of a tortilla. Here it's filled with mashed spiced black beans and a quick guacamole. Take this vegetarian version to another level (and add calcium) by melting Monterey Jack cheese onto the bean side of the sandwich. Serve with: Grilled corn on the cob or Spanish rice.......
