We had a hard time narrowing this list down to just a few recipes!
One of the things we love about Southwestern cuisine is its flexibility and diversity. There are very few dishes that depend on having the exact ingredients called for. Instead, chicken can be swapped for beef, almonds for pumpkin seeds, or black beans for pinto.
You'll get a slightly different dish every time, and it's just about guaranteed to be tasty!
