Recipes Featuring Product
INSTANT POT TACO CHICKEN
Taco night, simplified.
Make a big batch of this Taco Chicken, pull together all your fixings while the Instant Pot is doing its thing, and you'll be ready to go.
(If you have leftovers, try a batch of my TEX MEX Chicken Soup!)
TEX MEX CHICKEN SOUP
This TEX MEX Chicken Soup is so simple to throw together (only 10 mins of prep!), it will quickly become your new favorite soup recipe.
It's especially delicious if you have leftover Taco Chicken, though you can absolutely use any pre-cooked chicken you have on hand.
CREAMY CAULIFLOWER HUMMUS
This twist on the traditional Mediterranean favorite tastes almost exactly the same as the chickpea (garbanzo bean) variety. If you're looking for new lunch ideas (for yourself or the kiddos) I highly recommend adding this to your recipe rotation!
Try serving this with some sliced chicken for dipping as well – so delicious!
Featuring our Balanced Bites TEX MEX spice blend, this hummus is easy to make and full of flavor.
THE BEST ROAST CHICKEN
I think we could all benefit from a little comfort right now, and I can't think of anything more comforting than a homemade roast chicken. In this recipe for the best roast chicken, I like to use SAVORY, GREEK, or TEX MEX spice blends, but really any of my Balanced Bites Spices will work here.
EASY CHICKEN ENCHILADAS
This simple Pollo Asado recipe is my version of the traditional Mexican / Cuban slow-cooked chicken dish, marinated in lots of lime & orange juice, & seasoned with spices such as cumin, coriander, turmeric, paprika, and chili powder.
What I love about this recipe is how versatile it is – I've served it here with my Confetti Cauli Rice, though it would also be delicious in a taco using organic corn tortillas or as a protein on a taco salad, with rice & beans, or with sautéed plantains.
ITALIAN WEDDING SOUP
Did you know that Italian Wedding Soup has nothing to do with weddings? Funny, right?
It has to do with how the ingredients “marry” together – mini meatballs with the most flavorful broth packed with veggies, and hit with a citrus punch at the end. It's the perfect soup for a chilly day!
I like to serve mine with crusty bread and lots of parmesan grated on top – yum!
SALSA VERDE SLOW COOKER CHICKEN
Check out this super simple Paleo Salsa Verde Slow Cooker Chicken recipe, using our TEX MEX spice blend. I have used this recipe to create many meals, especially as a protein on taco salads or tacos using organic corn tortillas.
You can see some of the ways I've enjoyed it below – as posted on Instagram many times!

One of my faves!
I love using this blend in my mexican rice and on chicken fajitas!
Such a versatile blend
Outside the obvious foods, I like to add this to veggies, eggs, chicken, salmon, and so much more. I turned my brother on to this as well, which is why I ordered quite a few.
Tex mex spice blend
Very good but would prefer a little more heat
Balanced Bites Wholesome Foods
Hi Laura- I’m glad you enjoy TEX MEX. Please note that this blend is very specifically made without heat! It’s intended as an earthy vibe, without any pepper spices so that our nightshade-free customers have a great option! I recommend our TACO & FAJITA blend for the heat! We often combine the two for a super flavor party. Cheers! Diane
My Go-To Spice Mix for Taco Night
I love that this is a mellow Tex-Mex blend. It’s great for tacos, enchiladas and more!! Definitely recommend.
Delicious Tex Mex seasoning. I alternate this and the Taco and Fajita seasoning. All Balanced Bites spice combos are perfection.
