Want to kick things up a notch this Thanksgiving? Add a little flair to your holiday dinner with Mexican-inspired recipes that celebrate the bounty of the season.
These Mexican-inspired Thanksgiving recipes will be a welcome addition to a glorious holiday spread. Made with ingredients like beans, corn and chilies, these filling dishes will pair nicely with Thanksgiving classics like green bean casserole and caramelized Brussels sprouts.
We are especially fond of Mexican desserts so we've include two of our favorites below. Here's what to make to delight your guests:
A colorful fiber-pack salad made with kidney beans, corn kernels, onions, tomatoes and a zesty vinaigrette made with sherry vinegar.
Here's a wonderful gluten-free cheesy casserole featuring ground beef, corn, black olives, mozzarella and chilies.
Add these delicious baked empanadas to your appetizer lineup and they will disappear in seconds. It's a good idea to double the recipe for dough so you can stuff it with leftover turkey the day after Thanksgiving.
Pumpkin pie is great but your guests will also enjoy these fun cinnamon-coated churros dipped in a dark chocolate cream infused with orange.
Known in Spanish as polvorones, these shortbread cookies rolled in powdered sugar are deliciously buttery. Serve alongside coffee or tea for the perfect post-turkey treat.
