2. Easy Migas Recipe

Total time: 20 minutes

Migas is a Spanish word that can be translated to “crumbs.” As the name suggests, it’s a famous Mexican dish consisting of crispy corn tortilla strips soaked in whipped eggs and flavorful spices.

This easy Migas recipe makes things more simple by using the instant tortilla chip, jalapeno eggs, onion, and salsa for the flavoring. The slightly sweet and spicy flavors of salsa will bring this Migas onto another level.

A light, glistening, and fully scrambled egg texture is the key to a delicious Migas. Ensure that you don’t overcook the eggs or make the egg’s base turn brown. You can serve Migas in flour tortillas, but they don’t deliver as high quality as fresh corn tortillas.

3. Tortilla Pizza

Total time: 15 minutes

Tortilla pizza is a go-to dish when you’re feeling lazy. Its flavor is very simple but still sufficient for a yummy and filling breakfast. Plus, it takes only a few minutes to assemble the ingredients and bake this pizza. It’s hard to demand an easier and more convenient food.

The great thing about pizzas is that you can garnish them with any favorite toppings to achieve a rich and satisfying flavor. Some red onions, veggies, spinach, parmesan cheese, and red pepper flakes would be perfect for this recipe.

The crispy browned crust combined with the pleasant sweetness of the tortilla flour pizza makes a great base for this dish. Spread on it some hot sauce for extra spiciness and mozzarella cheese for a creamy texture.

4. Easy Vegan Fiesta Pinwheels

Total time: 2 hours and 10 minutes (including 2 hours of freezing)

Look at those beautiful fiesta pinwheels! They will make a gorgeous side dish for any fancy meal with the greenish tortillas swirls and creamy vegan cream cheese filling. Garnish the pinwheels with some red bell pepper, and they look more classy than ever.

This recipe is very healthy, with all vegan ingredients like fresh herbs, flour tortillas, and dried seasonings. You can use more toppings, like sun-dried tomatoes and artichoke hearts, for a more exotic flavor.

Ensure that the tortillas are really fresh so they won’t crack when rolling. After assembling the pinwheels, cover them in plastic wrap and freeze them for a few hours to harden. You can serve the pinwheels hot or chilled, which both bring fantasy flavors.

I would love to enjoy these French toast Tortillas with ice cream for a pleasant afternoon tea break. If you don’t have strawberries, use the other kinds like blackberries, raspberries, or blueberries.

6. Slow Cooker Chicken Tortilla Soup

Total time: 4 hours and 30 minutes

This slow cooker chicken tortilla soup tastes so special with its delicious Tex-Mex flavor from Picante sauce and condensed cream. It’s an ideal recipe for those looking for an easy and comforting dish on cold winter days.

The canned condensed cream gives this soup a super creamy and dense texture with a bright yellow color. The added shredded cheddar cheese also brings an extra buttery taste that well complements the soup’s sweet and filling flavors.

Of course, you need the corn tortillas strips along with some rich veggies and chicken breasts for this recipe. Keep in mind that you have to use boneless chicken breasts and shred them into tiny pieces before adding to the soup.

7. Banana Churros

Total time: 10 minutes (plus 10 seconds of cook time)

Churro is a popular snack in Latin American countries and Mexico, which can be served as a dessert, snack, or even breakfast. This recipe replaces coupe pastry in the original version with flour tortillas for a more filling and sweet flavor.

These banana churros are briefly fried for a crispy texture with a beautiful golden brown color. They are filled with fried bananas, giving a satisfying blend of sweet and organic taste. Save a little Nutella and strawberry for the garnishing, and you’ll have a heavenly snack.

It surprised me that the churros take only a short time to fry. You can secure the churros with a toothpick and flip them easier when frying. Finally, remove the toothpick and soak the churros in the cinnamon sugar mixture for extra sweetness.

8. Firecracker Casserole

Total time: 40 minutes (including 25 minutes of baking time)

This classic Mexican Tex-Mex dish possesses a bright and colorful appearance that reminds me of real firecrackers. Its classy look and delicious taste are perfect for celebrating New Year’s eve or special occasions.

Its vibrant reddish texture comes from hearty ingredients like ground beef, black beans, and diced tomatoes. Scoop out the fluffy casserole filling, and you will see the delicious base of condensed mushroom soup.

If you love spicy foods, the powerful spiciness from chili powder and the mild sweetness of cheddar cheese will make you really happy. Another thing I love about this casserole is that you can make it ahead of time and refrigerate it for later use.

9. Vegan Black Bean Burritos

Total time: 25 minutes

The vegan black bean burritos are a delicious and healthy dish made of tomato, white rice, tortilla flour, and black beans. These ingredients are both tasty and inexpensive, making them a perfect filling for vegan Mexican burritos.

Inside the crispy burrito is a creamy and flavorful filling. The black bean and white rice are seasoned with sea salt and chili powder for a super spicy and savory flavor. The burritos taste even better when adding vegan cream cheese, salsa, and sour cream.

This recipe works well with both white and black wine. You can also use canned black beans to save time in preparation. I recommend you add more veggies like avocado and shredded lettuce to the filling to make it more delicious.

10. Easy Chicken Flautas

Total time: 45 minutes

The shredded chicken Tinga mixed with green chiles, chipotle peppers, and veggies is the best filling for these Mexican Flautas. The ingredients come together like magic in this dish, making it a perfect appetizer for fancy parties and weeknight dinners.

The tortillas deliver a crispy and crunchy texture with a spicy and cheesy flavor from the shredded chicken filling. You can serve chicken flautas with sour cream, guacamole, and shredded lettuce to achieve the tastiest flavor.

You can microwave the tortillas first to make them more pliable for preparing this dish. Another tip is to spear the Flautas with toothpicks so they won’t lose the roll shape when frying.

I prefer simple and delicious desserts to celebrate special holidays, and this apple pie taquito is my go-to dish. It’s super crispy and sweet with the filling apple pie assembled in the taquitos form.

This recipe calls for very few convenient ingredients like apple pie filling, tortillas, and sweeteners. The caramel syrup and butter added to the filling bring a satisfying blend of buttery and sweet taste to each bite.

This recipe only adds a fried egg to keep it simple. The fried eggs should have a crispy texture with the runny yolk in the middle. You can serve the chilaquiles Verdes with meat and extra veggies like beans or cactus for a more yummy and nutritious meal.

I discovered that sweet potato tortillas make a perfect ingredient for burritos, quesadillas, and enchiladas with their super sweet and tasty flavor. Within only 16 minutes, you can prepare a healthy and nutrient-packed snack. It’s also an ideal dish to make using leftover sweet potatoes.

This dish is ridiculously simple with only two ingredients: whole wheat flour and sweet potato. The tortillas are finely fried without using any oil, giving them a super soft and tender texture. The recipe also works with potatoes, but I don’t think it brings a delicious taste.

These sweet potato tortillas can last for many days in the pantry. You should cover the fried tortillas using a clean kitchen towel to retain their soft texture. I have tried filling the tortillas with some veggies mixed with shredded meat, and they tasted so amazing.

My mood instantly lights up every time I see this Huevos Rancheros breakfast bowl. It possesses a vibrant and colorful texture with familiar ingredients like turkey bacon, fried eggs, and veggies.

You can stuff the corn tortillas with basically everything, from vegetables to savory meat. But how about some leftover meatballs in the pantry? These meatball Quesadillas will make you feel good with their delicious taste and filling texture.

The frozen meatball still delivers a good taste long as it is cooked. Of course, the sauce will elevate the flavor of your already superb quesadillas. This recipe calls for marinara or spaghetti sauce for the best flavor, but you can definitely use your favorite one.

The Quesadillas feature a cheesy and creamy layer from a ton of mozzarella cheese sprinkled on the tortilla flour. If you don’t have mozzarella cheese, any kind of store-bought or grated cheese will work.

Total time: 20 minutes

Even on the busiest weekdays, I never skip breakfast because it’s the most important meal of the day. With these simple and tasty make-ahead freezer burritos, you will never have to rush to work with an empty stomach again. 

The burritos are full of nutrients and flavors from brown rice, gooey cheddar, and black beans. The earthy and nutty taste of brown rice combines so well with the soft and creamy black bean’s texture.

These two ingredients will soak up the cheesy and fatty undertone of cheddar cheese, giving each burrito a satisfying burst of flavor. Ensure that you fry the burritos until crispy and let them cool before freezing, or they will become soggy.

The chicken Tostadas are a great snack to prepare for grilling parties with your friends and loved ones. Though BBQ sauce would give the most authentic flavor, you can use your favorite substitutes like marinara or Alfredo sauce.
