Mexican Comfort Food

I could basically eat Mexican food anytime, anywhere, as long as it's good Mexican food, of course. (Nothing makes me more angry than bad Mexican food, but that's another post for another time.)

And when I come home from an international trip (or even a domestic trip), it's the best food to come home to.

No one, other than Mexico obviously, does Mexican food as good as America does.

The chips and salsa, the spices, the vibrant colors, the creamy guacamole and the comforting carbs have a way of hugging you through your stomach. It's fantastic!

Mexican meals made at home are also your budget's best friend, especially these pinto beans.

After soaking the beans overnight and throwing them in the slow cooker with spices, peppers and onions, they slowly cook up to be soft, a little bit spicy and so delicious.

Throw those beans on top of a fresh mound of cilantro lime rice and you have yourself a Mexican feast that you will be oh so happy to come home to. And if you're feeling like making the meal even better, top it with some creamy guacamole!

  1. Mexican food is one of my favorite things about living in Springdale. We have the best food outside of Mexico!
