The holiday season is the perfect time to gather with family and friends, but coming up with food to serve can be a bit stressful and time consuming. This year why not keep it simple and get a little creative, with José Olé. Instead of serving up traditional roasted turkey, green bean casserole and pie – it’s easy to whip up a batch of mini tacos, quesadillas, and taquitos. Or my personal favorite, the Chicken & Cheddar Empanadas! They’re simple to make in your toaster oven, and the dishes are created with quality ingredients like real cheese, tender cuts of meat, and authentic seasonings to bring you a fiesta of flavor. Your guests are bound to be thrilled with these new tastes, and a break in normal holiday fare.
Thanks for helping José Olé reach their goal of donating $100,000 to Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals! Start the year off with a $1-off any José Olé product, 16 oz or larger, a great way to spice up any party.
Our SocialMoms members have their own tips for spicing up a holiday party:
- Mallery from Mallery’s Deals says the key to prepping for a party is to not stress out! “My biggest tip for your holiday party food spread is to combine ready made food and homemade food. This combination allows you to have the personal touches of homemade food, while saving time where time can be cut.”
- Amy with As the Bunny Hops reveals non-traditional foods are a way to spice up any holiday party. “ You can microwave, bake or pan fry the taquitos…whatever your schedule (and your tastes) prefer! I’m a fan of quick so I usually use the microwave…but I like the taste of baked so I’ll pop them in the oven for a few minutes when I’m done.”
- Kim with Two Kids and a Coupon shares tips for hosting a holiday party, including picking a theme. “Pick a theme to make it easy and fun to plan a menu and decorations. Make a Mexican fiesta with tacos, chips & salsa, taquitos and more (using the coupon above from José Olé of course!). Pick up some fun and festive south of the border decorations from the dollar store and let your creativity take you from there!”
- Heidi from Hot Coupon World says you should be a guest at your own party. “Have fun! Nothing makes your guests want to leave a party faster than a host or hostess who never sits down and enjoys her guests. Eat, drink and be merry. Tis the season!”
Hopefully these tips help in planning your next fiesta. Don’t settle for the ordinary when José Olé brand products can add a little more Olé to any day!
