Mexican cuisine seems to be universally popular in my home – or at least my version of it; I can’t claim to have tasted the real thing!  It is usually easy to make and contains popular ingredients – like cheese or chicken and some spices.  Here are a few more Mexican dishes to add to your weeknight dinnertime repertoire.  Most just need some rice and salad to round out to a full meal.

Chile Peppers with Cheese
(or Chile con Queso if you want to sound authentic)

1 onion, choppedChile Conqueso
4 tablespoons butter
1 (29 ounce) can stewed tomatoes
6 cups grated Cheddar cheese
1 (7 ounce) can diced green chiles
Chili powder or hot sauce (optional)
Sliced jalapenos (optional)
Tortilla chips

Sauté the onions in butter until translucent.  Add the tomatoes and simmer until mixture thickens (about 15 minutes).  Add the cheese and stir until it melts.  Stir in the chopped chiles.  Add chili powder or hot sauce if desired. Garnish with jalapenos. Serve with tortilla chips for dipping.
