The hubster and I love going out for Mexican food, but we also loving staying in a creating our own meal. And we like to start out our dinner with Delimex Taquitos. It’s the perfect appetizer that is crunchy, full of hearty flavors, and ready in minutes. It’s also a delicious addition for the Cinco de Mayo feast that I’m planning on making for the hubster and I.
So when I was shopping at Walmart last week, I was on the hunt for Delimex Taquitos and something else to round up my meal. After grabbing a few boxes of the taquitos, I stumbled upon the Delmex Tacos.
Stuffed with chicken and cheese, I knew these were a winner. And with all of the varieties that Delimex offers, I knew I would be back at Walmart soon to try out the other varieties. And after I browsed around the store for a bit, I came up with the perfect dish to pair with the taquitos.
When I made it home, I couldn’t wait to test out this Mexican Rice. It’s easy, full of Mexican flavor, and the perfect side dish to whip up for a Cinco de Mayo (or any day) celebration. Filled with fresh salsa, black beans, and spices, this rice is zesty and delicious. It also makes the perfect dish to go along with these tasty Delimex Taquitos and Tacos.
