Earlier in the week I posted a collection of slenderized Mexican recipes, and today we’ll see what my fellow healthy cooks have in their bag of tricks.
With Cinco de Mayo celebrations just around the corner, these dishes look like they’d make a tasty addition to the buffet table.
- Southwestern Chopped Salad with Cilantro Dressing from The Garden Grazer – you could use this dressing on almost any combination of salad ingredients.
- Chicken Posole Salad from Simply Recipes – Elise turns the classic Mexican chicken posole soup into a healthy looking salad.
- Skinny Mexican Grilled Corn from the Cookie Rookie – this fresh corn would be a terrific side for my Mexican roasted chicken.
- Pineapple and Black Bean Guacamole from Renee’s Kitchen Adventures – I’m always a fan of slenderizing guacamole with added in ingredients like beans, and pineapple really sounds great.
- Chicken Avocado Burger from Laughing Spatula – who needs a bun when a burger looks this moist and flavorful.
- Crockpot Salsa Chicken from Eat Yourself Skinny – it doesn’t get any easier than dumping chicken breasts and salsa into a slow cooker.
- Slow Cooker Pork Tacos from SkinnyMom – the seasonings added to the pork in this slow cooker Mexican recipe for tacos make my mouth water. We’re going on a camping trip next weekend. I plan on making this ahead of time so it can be reheated the first night for an easy meal while we set up camp.
- Weight Watcher’s Mexican Casserole from Recipe Diaries – if you don’t want a lot of fuss, casseroles are always a good choice.
- Skinny Lasagna `Ole from Skinny Kitchen – this is a fun slenderized twist on the classic Italian lasagna.
- Easy Homemade Corn Tortillas from Kitchen Riffs – why not make your own tortillas? All this recipe calls for is masa harina, warm water and a griddle. Even better, you have a gluten free option for guests.
- Skinny Sunrise Cocktail from Iowa Girl Eats – you can’t have a Mexican fiesta without a cocktail!
These healthy, slenderized Mexican recipes should get us started on a Cinco de Mayo celebration to remember, don’t you agree?
