Mexican Meal Prep Recipes are a staple! We can never get enough, can you? Here are 19 of our favorites!

Mexican food is always a fan-favorite in the U.S. It should come as no surprise that a survey revealed Mexican fare as the 2nd most popular cuisine in the U.S. We don't know what it is. Maybe it's the zesty, fresh salsas, or the use of many bold spices? The creaminess of the cheeses? It's all of that, and then some, and probably why people love a good Taco Tuesday. Mexican food is also, at its most basic, fairly kid-friendly, too, so that might be worth considering if you're looking to expand your family's culinary horizons.
