What’s your favorite cuisine? Mine, hands down, is Mexican food! Every time my husband and I visit Mexico we search for the little out-of-the-way authentic restaurants where they make their own tortillas. It’s always fun to watch – and eat!
With Cinco de Mayo right around the corner (May 5), I’m one happy girl. No, I don’t have the time or the knowledge to make authentic Mexican food, but I’m celebrating with someone who does – Delimex – DELI-cious MEX-ican food!
Taking center stage at my family-friendly Cinco de Mayo celebration is my Delimex Taquito Shooters! I start with layering a pretty and delicious Mexican dip and then top it off with a taquito.
When planning a party, I try to come up with creative ways to serve food. Presentation speaks volumes! Guests always enjoy what I call small bites; individual servings just for them. And you don’t have to worry about double dipping!
In addition to the Taquito Shooters, I’m serving Delimex Beef Tamales. They’re flavored with chili and jalapeño peppers and hand-wrapped in real cornhusks. My guests will think I’ve been slaving away all day. I mean, REAL cornhusks! It wouldn’t be a party without my frozen margarita mocktails (no alcohol).
With grocery list in hand, I visited my local Walmart and found exactly what I was looking for. The tamales and taquitos were found in the open freezers between the meat department and the regular food aisles.
Delimex Taquito Shooters
While the Delimex Taquitos are baking, mix sour cream and seasoning mix together.
Spoon the refried beans, pickled jalapeños, chopped tomatoes, chopped green onions, and shredded cheese into individual bowls.
Layer beans and sour cream mixture into individual glasses. Top with jalapeños, cheese, tomatoes, and onions.
Delimex Taquito Shooters
- 1 package Delimex Taquitos
- 1 can refried beans
- 16 oz. sour cream
- 1 package zesty sour cream seasoning mix (Mexican food aisle)
- Pickled jalapeños
- 3 medium chopped tomatoes
- 1/2 cup chopped green onions
- 1 cup Mexican cheese, shredded
- Bake taquitos according to package directions.
- In a medium-sized bowl, mix the sour cream and seasoning mix until well blended.
- Layer beans, sour cream mixture, jalapenos, cheese, tomatoes and onions in small glasses.
- Insert a taquito into each glass.
Funny Story Alert
I have to share a funny story. While my son was munching on my Delimex Taquito Shooters and Beef Tamales, he kept going on and on about how good the food was. Then he said, “Mom, this is the best Mexican food you’ve ever made!” I didn’t dare tell him how easy it was! I’m just going to let him think I rolled those taquitos and wrapped those tamales in corn husks and steamed away. I’ll never tell! 🙂
How will you celebrate Cinco de Mayo?

This is such a great way to serve taquitos! Thanks for the inspiration for our Cinco de Mayo at home party! #client
What an adorable idea! I love recipes like this that kind of hack the pre-made food into something new. My family loves taquitos, so I know they would absolutely LOVE a little concoction like this! Thanks for sharing.
That is so cool! You’ve got an entire meal in a cute little package. I love it!
This is such a great idea! I never would’ve thought of making these like this! Thank you for showing it to me!
This looks yummy! What a fun and inventive way to use a simple taquito!
This is a fun looking recipe.. My kids love to eat toquitos, and they eat them all the time!
This is a great idea. It’s like having little seven layer dips that you can hold in your hand! Plus, taquitos are always awesome.
Oh my goodness…how fun!! These are awesome, and will definitely be making it onto my table real soon!
I love how you displayed these, such a fun idea for Mexican food night in our house. I’d love to try those taquitos for myself 🙂
Yum! These would be perfect to make for Cinco de Mayo!!
We are huge into eating Mexican foods. We have a restaurant not far from us, but making these at home would be even better.
I will be celebrating Cinco de Mayo with a large margarita. Skinny version of course!
That is just so fun! We’re pretty big fans of Mexican food too. I’m always looking for new things to try.
We love Mexican food but I can only make taco and nothing more lol. Thanks for sharing this one, I can make this sometime.
I am wondering if you can make those taquitos yourself? I have to find me a recipe, it’s a something that my kids would like to snack on.
This idea is GENIUS! I love to serve taquitos when entertaining and this is the cutest presentation I have ever seen. Can’t wait to bust these out on Memorial Day!
Oh wow. Those look so good. My husband LOVES Mexican food. He would really love these.
Mexican food is totally my favorite too! I love how creative you got with the taquitos – they look great 🙂
Omg this would be a perfect appy to serve the girls next time they’re over for drinks or something! Love the little tacos, so cute.
What a great idea I think my kids would really like this, they are usually tired of the same old dishes so thisw ould definatly mix it up for them.
What an amazing idea! Honestly I think I’d eat an entire bowl of this stuff!
Your shooters look scrumptious! Stacy likes to keep those Delimex goodies in the freezer for busy Saturdays. He would love this recipe too.
I like to have them around for the kids, too. My son ate them all the time when he was growing up and he still loves them.
These look super yummy! I’d love to try them out for a party at home. I’m sure it was a hit!
Those look delicious! And those little dishes are so cute. I love them.
Ohhh man, those look so good! Right up my alley- taquitos are one of my all time favourites and your layers of dip are fantastic.
Eugh, now I want to eat this -_-
This recipe sounds like the perfect surprise for our routine taco night at home. I absolutely love taquitos, but they can get a little boring when you serve them in the same manner.
This looks fantastic. I love how they are in the cups. I will have to make some of these up.
I love Mexican food. I love how great these look.
Genius. Just genius. I love those as appetizers for 5 May…
I absolutely love this idea! I have a question, though … When using a tall serving dish/glass, are you able to get all the dip out before the taquito gets too short? I’d love to serve these at my next party, but just wonder about the practicality of it. These are gorgeous!
I love Mexican food, if it was up to me I would eat it at least 3x’s a week! These shooters are genius and I definitely plan on making them!
These look delicious!! I love Taquitos and I have never thought to make shooters out of them, great idea!!
What a fun way to serve the taquitos! I bet those are a major hit!
I love mexican food too and I have been wanting to try these out for so long I just wasn’t sure if I would like them. You make it look and sound so amazing I will defiantly be trying this out!
