Today marks the first day of Las Posadas. For the next nine days my family and I will celebrate the Las Posadas Holiday in the best way possible ( with food). Easy Mexican recipes are the key to our hearts and a great way to celebrate Las Posadas! With all the hustle and bustle of last-minute holiday shopping, celebrating a birthday week and embracing my boys homebody status, it’s only right that we gather around the dinner table for easy Mexican dishes.
Tonight I made one of the simplest dishes I know. The dish my entire family can gobble down in minutes. A bowl of Las Posadas Easy Mexican Beef Fideo with our favorite chips and HERDEZ salsa.
