Mexican Fiesta Menu


It's a party! Actually, it'll be a disaster unless you figure out what to serve to a group of family members clamoring for a taste of south-of-the-border fare.

Whether it's for Cinco de Mayo, a themed fiesta, or just a big weekend meal with everyone around the same table (for a change), our fiesta menu has recipes that will appease the pickiest of eaters, and help you break out of the same old dinner routines. If anything looks too spicy for your family, simply reduce the spices, or substitute mild red bell peppers without the seeds.

  1. Seven-Layer Dip
    Great as a part of dinner, or as a snack in front of the TV, this dip is meant for big, sturdy tortilla chips.
  2. Chicken Fajita Salad
    Salad isn't the roadblock to entrees anymore. A little spice and chopped chicken make this one tasty and filling enough to be a meal unto itself.
  3. Mexican Chicken Soup
    Some easy-to-find herbs make boring old chicken soup a Latin treat. Top it with a dollop of sour cream for a cooling accent.
  4. Grilled Shrimp Tacos
    Frozen shrimp cook quickly and add some Baja flavor to dinner. Set up a taco bar with all the toppings to get the kids excited about building their own plate.
  5. Mexican Hot Chocolate
    A touch of spice in each sip is a unique and pleasant surprise.

Need an idea for some fiesta fun? Try making your own colorful piƱata for the kids to demolish.
