10 Mexican inspired recipes that belong in a restaurant

I have a problem. I'm seriously addicted to Mexican food. I've tried everything, Chilli Bowls, Tacos, Quesadillas... everything but cold turkey really.

1. Vegetarian Tex Mex Bowl

Avo and feta, can you think of anything better? Topped with fried egg and fragrant mexican spices, it's a classic Tex Mex dish with a veggie spin. Get the recipe here.

2. Mexican Corn and Sausage Salad with Yoghurt Dressing

You don't make friends with salad... but who needs friends with a dish like this? Ripped up pita bread, Italian sausage, baby spinach, corn cob, cukes, Greek yogurt and traditional Mexican spices. Need I say more? Ok. More! Get the recipe here!

3. Mexican Chilli Bowl with Guacamole and Sweet Potato Wedges

I'm not very religious but holy guacamole, this dish is a gift from heaven. Sometimes a bowl of Chilli Con Carne can sit heavy in your stomach but not this one. The classic white rice has been subbed out for low GI potato wedges so if you're up for it, you can go for a run afterwards (and by run I mean back for seconds). Get the recipe here.

4. Mexican Rice and Beans with Quesadillas

I'll have the Quesadillas please.

A whole case of dilla's? How about you have one and then see how you feel.

Omg the chipotle in adobo sauce is insane. 1 case of the sauce please. But don't forget the Quesadillas. Get the recipe here.

5. Chicken Pinchos Salad with Chipotle Corn Salsa

This dish is straight outta Puerto Rico but belongs in my belly. By making incisions into the Chicken thigh, the zesty lemon, mexican seasoning and olive oil seep right in, giving a flavour I can't describe but can easily devoure. Get the recipe here.

6. Huevos Rancheros with Feta and Smashed Avo

This looks as good as it tastes. Traditionally, Huevos Rancheros is a mid-morning dish but seeing as though 'brinner is the new brunch' and I'm never up before 10am anyway, I thought I'd bend the rules a little. Get the recipe here.

7. Californian-Style Fish Tacos with Avocado and Coriander Salsa

We've been on the run, driving in the sun, hoping to find fish tacos. Is there anything better in this world? Yes, actually, fish tacos with avocado and coriander salsa. Get the recipe here.

8. Mexican Beef with Black Beans, Corn and Capsicum

Got beef? Yeah I got beef, I got Black Beans, Corn and Capsicum too. No qualms, just a great recipe. I think I've cooked this one 5 times... Get the recipe here.

9. Black Bean Quesadilla with Corn and Jalapeno Salsa

What does a nosey Pepper do? It gets Jalapeno business! This dish can get all up in my business any day of the week. Get the recipe here.

10. Mexican Meatball Tacos with Guacamole

MMM taco flavoured kisses... Miracles are kinda like meatballs… No one can agree on what they're made of, where they come from, or how often they should appear. But it doesn't matter because this one's half a beef meatball sub and half Mexican taco. Por que no los dos? ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
