The Kosher Mexican Menu
with delicious new kosher Mexican recipes

Kosher Mexican cooking presents a challenge to the kosher observant. Heavy on meat and cheese together, we usually cannot re-create authentic Mexican in the kosher world.

Like everything good in life, we have to make a choice. And with a choice, we eliminate other possibilities. That's part of what keeping a kosher diet is all about.

Meanwhile, there's always, Carlos n'Gaby's; I hear they have it down pat in the meaty-Tex-Mex. One day I'll try to recreate that. So for now, here it is ~heavy on the cheese, please.

The choices we make define us, tell who we are and lead us to destinations where we will....have to make another choice. May all your decisions be with good consul and lead you to make even higher choices.
