We eat Mexican flavors regularly since my husband is from Texas originally. But, I like to do something a little bit more festive on Cinco de Mayo. That said, I don’t have a lot of time to put together a healthy meal, so simple is good in my book.
Simple Cinco de Mayo Recipes
Of course, there are a lot of fun snack and meal ideas you can put together for Cinco de Mayo. The kids love to dip, so we always have a big bag of CHI-CHI’S tortilla chips and a few varieties of CHI-CHI’S salsa. I’m all about mild salsa, but the kids tend to love the hot stuff, so I buy some for everyone.
CHI-CHI’S Brand is passionate about creating fun and festive gatherings through their delicious Mexican foods, including crowd-pleasing salsas, tortillas, and chips. You can find their products at your favorite mass retailer when you’re shopping for your Cinco de Mayo party or favorite Mexican dinner or snack.
My husband is the Mexican cook in our house, so he puts together tacos, refried beans, chicken enchiladas, and tortillas. I’m more about the Mexican Chocolate Pudding and the Mexican Mochaccino at the end of the meal.
Mexican baked potatoes
This year, I decided to keep it simple and put together Mexican Baked Potatoes with some Virgin Margarita Mocktails for everyone to enjoy. It’s all easy to put together before dinner, so there isn’t a lot of time in the kitchen.
CHI-CHI’S products are made from quality ingredients, including real tomatoes, vegetables, and flavorful seasonings. Their line of salsas includes Verde, Pineapple, Cilantro, and Thick & Chunky varieties, available in Mild, Medium and Hot heat levels. There is something for everyone. Make sure you put together a big pitcher of these festive Virgin Margarita Mocktails for your guests to enjoy.
