Tired of Tacos? Try These Mexican Food Favorites

Tacos are a tasty staple on any Mexican restaurant menu, but they are far from the only option to explore. If you’re craving Mexican fare but you want to branch out from your usual taco order, try the following favorites for something equally delicious but unique and new for your taste buds.

Breakfast Burritos

It doesn’t have to be breakfast time to order a breakfast burrito, which will come packed with scrambled eggs, potatoes, and your choice of meat or veggies in a warm, oversized flour tortilla. Add your favorite salsa for an extra kick, and enjoy a complete breakfast wrapped in a convenient handheld package.


A chimichanga is an American adaptation of traditional Mexican cuisine—it’s deep fried to perfection for a crispy exterior surrounding your choice of fillings. Whether you prefer beans, pork, chicken, or tofu inside, a chimichanga can satisfy a big appetite!


Often made with corn tortillas, enchiladas are a hearty treat baked in red or green sauce—the difference depends on the chilies in the sauce—and smothered in a melty blend of Mexican cheeses. Inside, you can choose any number of fillings, which will become slathered with the tasty sauce in every bite. Usually enchiladas are served with rice and beans on the side and a dollop of guacamole or sour cream right on top, so you’ll have a complete meal on one plate.


A quesadilla is the perfect snack or appetizer to share. It’s a tortilla folded flat with cheese inside, which may be accompanied by a sprinkling of veggies, shredded pork, or other favorite fillings. The quesadilla is browned like a grilled cheese sandwich and cut into pieces so it’s easy to share or eat on the go. Each bite will deliver a satisfying cheese pull and delicious authentic flavors.
