Mango-Chicken Tinga

We love how many ways we can eat up this smoky Mango-Chicken Tinga. Use it as a filling for burritos or tortas, or add it to huevos rancheros for a coastal-inspired breakfast. Every option is tasty!

Vegetable Chili con Queso

Plunge a handful of crunchy tortilla chips into a party-perfect dip. Our chunky garlic version is made with a blend of Colby and Monterey Jack cheeses, hearty beans, and zucchini.

Who knew a can of fizzy cola and quick-pickled red onions could create a sandwich as scrumptious as this? We added chipotle peppers and creamy avocado to balance the hot and cool flavors.

Pibil-Style Pork Ribs

We like our ribs a little feisty. That's why we've coated them in so many ultra-hot seeds and spices. To help the mixture stick, we covered the ribs in a lime-orange juice that provides tropical taste, while a splash of tequila lends a touch of subtle depth to the dish.
