What to serve with Mexican food other than beans and rice?
While we love refried beans and Mexican rice, there are a whole bunch of delicious Mexican side dishes to try out! A side of chips, salsa and guacamole always hits the spot. Mexican corn made with a delicious Chipotle Mayo sauce is also delicious. A crunchy, chopped Mexican salad filled with veggies can be a nice contrast to saucy enchiladas.
What Mexican sides do you serve with tacos?
It definitely depends on your taco filling but some of our favourites are Mexican Black Beans, Chips and Guacamole, and a chopped Mexican Salad in addition to the typical refried beans and rice. Be sure to check out our Home of Tacos for all our recommended side dish recipes for tacos!
What sides to serve with enchiladas?
Melty and saucy enchiladas are great paired with a crisp green salad or crunchy Mexican coleslaw. Be sure to visit our Home of Enchiladas to discover our tips, how to and what to serve with enchilada recommendations.
