I became such a big fan of Taco Tuesday that it turned into Tacos Daily. If anyone ever asks what I would like to eat for dinner, the answer is almost always something that would be found in a Mexican restaurant. Even if it’s not tacos, enchiladas, quesadillas, or burritos also make my heart (and stomach) happy. Basically, if it comes filled with flavor and covered in cheese, I’m in. There’s even a Mexican restaurant that is on the edge of the parking lot of my apartment complex, and I’ve ordered takeout from them so many times that I’m pretty sure they know my order by heart.
That’s what makes me so excited to share these recipes with you all. These healthier recipes are filled with Mexican flavors but are much better for you. Making your favorite food at home is always healthier than eating out because you can control the quality of your ingredients and make your own healthy substitutions.

BONUS! You need something to scoop up all of those dips, right? Try these Baked Corn Chips. This recipe makes traditional triangles, but you could also make your own dipping tortilla chips: cut sections of the tortilla into smaller pieces, place on an over-turned mini muffin tin that’s been sprayed with cooking spray, and bake until crispy.
