Last night, after reuniting with my sadly neglected treadmill, I sat down to write down everything I ate during the day. Nothing about that statement is typical, of course. What is typical? The fact that I ate a burrito for every meal.
Okay, I don’t normally eat three burritos in one day, but yesterday? I did it.
Breakfast burrito – check.
Chili burrito for lunch – check.
Taco Bell for dinner – check.
You probably won’t be surprised to learn that I was over my Weight Watchers points for the day.
Also not surprising? The fact that I’m looking for an excuse to make something Mexican today for Cinco de Mayo – and that I’ve already been to the store for tomatoes, cilantro and tortillas!
I’m not sure what I’ll be making for tonight’s dinner, but I can guarantee taco seasoning and salsa will be involved. Just in case you, too, are in the
random, oft-misunderstood holiday spirit, here are some of my favorite recipes for Mexican dishes (and appetizers).
- Tortilla Rolls and MexiDip
- Seven Layer Dip
- Beef Burrito with Chili
- Spicy Chicken Spaghetti
- Fiesta Chicken Enchiladas
- Cheesy Beef Enchiladas
- Chicken Enchilada Soup
- Chicken Nachos
- Chicken Nachos, part deux
- Shredded Beef Tacos and Pico de Gallo
- Taco Pasta Casserole
Will you be eating Mexican food today?
I forgot it is Cinco de Mayo. Haha! Now I may have to figure out Mexican for tonight. :) Those pictures sure are inspiring. Haha! Way to go on doing the treadmill… :)
I’ve only hit the treadmill once a week for the past two weeks. I figure that’s better than nothing, but I’m planning for more/better this coming week!
Early on in marriage, my husband pointed out that I had fixed Mexican food every night for a week. It never even occurred to me.
And hello? A breakfast burrito is a totally different thing from a chili burrito which is a completely different thing from a Taco Bell burrito.
Right! I mean, the breakfast burrito had sausage, the chili burrito had chili (shocker!) and the Taco bell burrito had chopped onions. Totally different!
Oh. My. Yum.
I’m picking you up for a burrito run! =)
Haha – I’m just on your way home, right? ;)
