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!

Delimex Taquito Shooters

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.

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! 🙂

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.

This is a fun looking recipe.. My kids love to eat toquitos, and they eat them all the time!

Travis April 21, 2015 - 2:14 pm

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.

Ronda April 21, 2015 - 2:54 pm

Oh my goodness…how fun!! These are awesome, and will definitely be making it onto my table real soon!

Fi Ní Neachtáin April 21, 2015 - 3:43 pm

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!!

Terry April 21, 2015 - 4:42 pm

We are huge into eating Mexican foods. We have a restaurant not far from us, but making these at home would be even better.

Lauren (@pinkonthecheek) April 21, 2015 - 5:27 pm

I will be celebrating Cinco de Mayo with a large margarita. Skinny version of course!

Liz Mays April 21, 2015 - 6:46 pm

That is just so fun! We’re pretty big fans of Mexican food too. I’m always looking for new things to try.

Chubskulit Rose April 21, 2015 - 7:11 pm

We love Mexican food but I can only make taco and nothing more lol. Thanks for sharing this one, I can make this sometime.

Chubskulit Rose April 22, 2015 - 6:22 am

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.

Amanda April 21, 2015 - 7:24 pm

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!

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.

Jessica Simms April 21, 2015 - 11:25 pm

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.

Your shooters look scrumptious! Stacy likes to keep those Delimex goodies in the freezer for busy Saturdays. He would love this recipe too.

Alli April 23, 2015 - 5:51 am

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.

Shaney Vijendranath' April 22, 2015 - 9:43 am

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.

Alysia from My Domestic Dish April 22, 2015 - 1:40 pm

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 -_-

Roselynn April 22, 2015 - 3:27 pm

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.

Ann Bacciaglia April 22, 2015 - 5:15 pm

This looks fantastic. I love how they are in the cups. I will have to make some of these up.

Dogvills April 22, 2015 - 10:07 pm

I love Mexican food. I love how great these look.

Margarita Ibbott April 23, 2015 - 1:07 am

Genius. Just genius. I love those as appetizers for 5 May…

Cherri Megasko April 23, 2015 - 9:25 am

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!

Alyssa C April 23, 2015 - 9:25 am

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!

ricci April 23, 2015 - 10:11 am

These look delicious!! I love Taquitos and I have never thought to make shooters out of them, great idea!!

Rosey April 23, 2015 - 10:18 am

What a fun way to serve the taquitos! I bet those are a major hit!

Angela April 23, 2015 - 6:46 pm

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!
