You eat Mexican food like it's your job all year round, so why not incorporate your love for the cuisine into this year's Thanksgiving feast?
There's no need to ditch Turkey Day classics to serve up an amazing dinner with a touch of ethnic flair. All it takes is a little bit of spice (and a whole lot of flavor) to put together a Mexican Thanksgiving that everyone will beg you to make again next year.
Try these Mexican-inspired Thanksgiving recipes to spice up your holiday table.
You can't go wrong with chiles and cheese. This casserole may just become a year-round side dish on your dinner table when you're serving Mexican fare.
Instead of bacon, give your Brussels sprouts a spicy Mexican flair with chorizo.
Stuffed pumpkins make a stunning presentation for Thanksgiving. You can fill them with your favorite Mexican rice recipe, or save yourself some time and try the Nueva Cocina Mexican Rice Mix. Ready in 25 minutes and packed with flavor, you'll find yourself making this rice year-round. Even better, the brand is 100 percent natural, free of MSG and lower in sodium than most other brands.
If pumpkin is part of the savory Thanksgiving meal, serve this rich chocolate "tres leches" cake for Thanksgiving dessert.
