Chorizo Pinto Bean Nachos

Crunchy chips, melted cheese, spicy chorizo — these nachos [4] have it all! The fiery sauce gets its kick from habanero cheddar cheese.

Chile Con Queso

This all-natural variation of chile con queso [7] is cheesy, creamy, rich, and addictive.

Steak Tacos

Monterey Jack Quesadillas

These vegetarian quesadillas [9] are filled with a simple, but tasty mixture of cheese, jalapeños, and cilantro.


No Mexican fiesta is complete without a heaping bowl of homemade guacamole! Here's our favorite recipe [10].
