    Nancy this is a great round up! I still have not and need to make your fiesta chili mac as I know my boys would just love that. Fiesta chili mac sounds like the perfect Saturday fun evening meal. What program did you use to link your photos together-awesome. Pinning now! Have a super weekend. BAM

      I put all my photos together in one Photoshop document. There are probably other ways to do something like this, but Photoshop is the only way I know how! Glad you like the round-up! 🙂

    That tortilla soup you posted a few months ago would be a great Cinco de Mayo recipe also. I have made that several times vegetarian and use my immersion blender to make it super smooth.

    These recipes and pictures look pretty good too. I just made a bunch of Mexican stuff last weekend. Didn’t even think that maybe I should have waited till this week instead. My roundup included pineapple/jalapeno salsa, cheese and black bean enchiladas, refried beans, rice, and cinnamon crispas to eat with ice cream and chocolate sauce. The next night I made ahi fish tacos and used some of the leftover pineapple salsa, rice and beans on the side.

    I think I will look over your recipes and pick a few of those to make this weekend.

      You’re right–I forgot about the tortilla soup! I’ll have to include that in my roundup for next year! The recipes you made sound great, too!
