Our Disclaimer (The serious stuff)

By using our free meal planner (and the rest of spoonacular.com) you have to agree that you and only you are responsible for anything that happens to you because of something you have read on this site or have bought/cooked/eaten because of this site. After all, the only person who controls what you put in your mouth is you, right?

Spoonacular is a recipe search engine that sources recipes from across the web. We do our best to find recipes suitable for many diets — whether vegetarian, vegan, gluten free, dairy free, etc. — but we cannot guarantee that a recipe's ingredients are safe for your diet. Always read ingredient lists from the original source (follow the link from the "Instructions" field) in case an ingredient has been incorrectly extracted from the original source or has been labeled incorrectly in any way. Moreover, it is important that you always read the labels on every product you buy to see if the product could cause an allergic reaction or if it conflicts with your personal or religious beliefs. If you are still not sure after reading the label, contact the manufacturer.

We also attempt to estimate the cost and calculate the nutritional information for the recipes found on our site. Again, we cannot guarantee the accuracy of this information. Additionally, our nutrition visualizer that suggests that you limit sodium, sugar, etc., and get enough protein, vitamins, and minerals is not intended as medical advice. Similarly, our health tips are based on articles we have read from various sources across the web, and are not based on any medical training. The team behind spoonacular does not possess any medical qualifications and the information may be found to be incorrect or out of date based on future research. If you need help planning your diet or determining which foods (and recipes) are safe for you, contact a registered dietitian, allergist, or another medical professional.

Spoonacular is not responsible for any adverse effects or damages that occur because of your use of the website or any information it provides (e.g. after cooking/consuming a recipe on spoonacular.com or on any of the sites we link to, after reading information from articles or shared via social media, etc.)

Fully-Loaded Veggie Fajita Pasta might be just the Mexican recipe you are searching for. For $2.43 per serving, this recipe covers 25% of your daily requirements of vitamins and minerals. This main course has 361 calories, 22g of protein, and 5g of fat per serving. Not a lot of people made this recipe, and 1 would say it hit the spot. From preparation to the plate, this recipe takes roughly 50 minutes. A mixture of olive oil, milk beverage, pasta, and a handful of other ingredients are all it takes to make this recipe so yummy. To use up the lime wedges you could follow this main course with the Frozen Key Lime Pie as a dessert. It is a good option if you're following a dairy free diet. All things considered, we decided this recipe deserves a spoonacular score of 4%. This score is very bad (but still fixable). Similar recipes include Fully Loaded Guacamole, Fully Loaded Bars, and Fully loaded mac and cheese.

Pinot Noir, Riesling, and Sparkling rosé are great choices for Mexican. Acidic white wines like riesling or low-tannin reds like pinot noir can work well with Mexican dishes. Sparkling rosé is a safe pairing too. The MacMurray Ranch Russian River Pinot Noir with a 4 out of 5 star rating seems like a good match. It costs about 24 dollars per bottle.

MacMurray Ranch Russian River Pinot Noir

Our MacMurray Ranch 2012 Russian River Valley Pinot Noir opens with aromas of lavender and boysenberry that give way to flavors of dark cherry and pomegranate. This luscious wine has a silky mouthfeel, framed by subtle hints of oak from barrel aging.

Tips

Health Tips

  • You can easily replace regular noodles with whole wheat noodles to add a little extra fiber, protein, vitamins, and minerals to this dish. Just don't make the mistake of assuming that because the pasta is whole wheat, you can eat as much as you want. The calories and the effect on your blood sugar is not so drastically different!

  • Lycopene, the chemical in tomatoes that makes them red (and healthy), is fat soluble. This means eating tomatoes with a fat — say, avocado or olive oil?improves the body's ability to absorb the lycopene. Don't hesitate to include some healthy fats in this dish to get the most health benefits from the tomatoes!

Cooking Tips

  • If you're using olive oil to cook at high temperatures, make sure that the olive oil you're using has a high smoke point because heating an oil past its smoke point can ruin the flavor and even release harmful compounds into your dish. Many people recommend saving extra-virgin olive oil for cold dishes or for adding the finishing touch to a warm dish. You could also use canola oil, coconut oil, or another good high-temperature oil to be on the safe side.

  • Just a head's up: tomatoes shouldn't be refrigerated! They will lose their flavor and probably get mushy too. For more on selecting and storing tomatoes and other vegetables, check out the academy.

  • The best method for cooking pasta is pretty controversial, but most sources seem to reach a consensus. Check out our lesson on how to cook pasta in the academy.

  • The average fresh lime contains 2 tablespoons of lime juice (just in case you are substituting bottled lime juice).

Green Tips

  • Tomatoes, especially cherry tomatoes, should be bought organic when possible. Moreover, buying tomatoes from your local farmers' market when they are in season is going to make your dish much, much tastier, not to mention more eco-friendly. In fact, we recommend using canned — or better yet, jarred?tomato products when tomatoes aren't in season instead of buying imported or greenhouse-grown tomatoes.
