My stepson just returned home from a service trip to Mexico. To celebrate his return I thought it would be fun to throw together a quick and easy Mexican fiesta for dinner. What better way is there to greet his return then enjoy a relaxing dinner while we got to hear all about his trip?!

An Easy Mexican Fiesta Dinner Menu with Delimex

  • Delimex Chicken Taquitos topped with Guacamole Sauce
  • Delimex Beef Tamales topped with Chili and Cheese
  • Confetti Mexican Rice (recipe below)
  • Chili-Cheese Cornbread
  • Southwestern Salad
  • Chips and Salsa
  • Sliced Avocado
  • Sliced Radishes
  • Jarritos
  • Flan

This family meal was extra fun! Maybe it was the festive and bright colors. Maybe it was the fact that the kids got to have soda with dinner. Or maybe it was because we got to hear all about Dominick’s experience working with the children of IPODERAC and of his work sealing roofs and providing road maintenance around the campus.

I suppose it was because all of the above and the fact that pulling together a Mexican Fiesta on a weeknight was easy! Cinco de Mayo is right around the corner and this year it will fall on a Tuesday. Another weeknight. That means that I will be heading back to Walmart where I know I can find an assortment of Delimex taquitos, tacos, and tamales to help me pull together another Mexican fiesta for our at home Cinco de Mayo Happy Hour!

Delimex Beef Tamales Topped with Chili

Delimex Beef Tamales

Delimex tamales are easy! Just pop them in the microwave to heat. They can be served straight from the husk or dressed up a bit. I like to dress mine up with a topping of heated chili and a sprinkle of shredded cheddar cheese. So yummy!

Delimex Chicken Taquitos topped with Guacamole Sauce

Delimex Chicken TaquitosMy kids love to have these taquitos for snacks. It is something they can prepare themselves whenever they feel the craving. For dinner, like the tamales, I like to dress them up a bit. I simply layer the hot taquitos on a bed of shredded lettuce and drizzle them with guacamole sauce.  To make the guacamole sauce I simply put a scoop of guacamole into a ziploc bag and add in a scoop of sour cream. I then seal the bag and smoosh the two together until they are well mixed. Next, I snip off a corner of the bag with a pair of scissors and then use the bag to help me pipe on the guacamole sauce.  I then top it all with diced red bell peppers and sliced black olives. Pretty huh? And so easy! Yep Delimex from my local Walmart made my Mexican fiesta on a weeknight a possibility!

  1. Your decorations are so bright and fun! Taquitos are favorites in our house too – next time, I’ll serve them with your Confetti Rice. #client

    1. Thanks Emily! It was a very fun night. The kids loved the confetti rice and when you add the whole beans to the rice it becomes a whole protein – healthy and delicious!
