Menu Planning Monday May 16th: What to serve with Mexican food

About a month ago I posted a list of ideas for side dishes for Greek meals. This time around I decided to focus on Mexican food because it seems that so many Mexican dishes are served in the summer time.

I know I’m not doing a good job with that when we have chips and salsa more than once in a week. I do my best not to make any sort of premade sides because of the amount of preservatives, sodium and calories. It does however add to the amount of time it takes to make dinner. Hopefully this list will offer you some new ideas and some motivation to try and add a little flavor to your Mexican inspired dinners.
