Christmas Eve Eve is celebrated on December 23 and we traditionally have a Mexican Fiesta. This started a few years back when my Dad brought handmade Tamales for dinner. It’s a great meal, and nice to have something different during a time where many meals are heavy and extremely unhealthy. Tamales are not healthy, but all the sides we make with it are. Plus, it’s SUPER easy, nut-free and everyone loves Mexican food!!!
Here’s our menu. It’s also a good day to kick back a little and enjoy the holidays without the pressure of cooking / being in the kitchen since Mexican food can kind of just chill out for a while. Eat + snack, open gifts. Repeat. That’s what we do. Flannel is recommended attire.
- Two (2) packs of hand made Tamales from El Ray Mexican Grocery Store, Milwaukee, WI.
- Spanish rice
- Black beans
- Salsa + Tostitos Chips
- Homemade Guacamole
- Corn bread (Betty Crocker is the only NUTFREE pre-mix brand available, not all stores have it. Target usually carries it.)
I’ll post a pic here when Dad and Mary come by this Saturday 🙂
