Whether you are hosting an intimate Easter gathering or an outdoor potluck, plan an unforgettable celebration filled with Mexican dishes, delicious desserts, creative cocktails, and a fun activity for the kids.

 

Molotes (Oaxacan Masa Empanadas) from Muy Bueno are a common street food, found in Oaxaca during Easter and Christmas time. They are made with a disk of fresh masa then usually filled with a chorizo and potato filling, fried, then topped with salsa, crema, queso fresco, and garnished with sliced radishes.

Red Chile Chicken Chilaquiles from Betty Crocker is a Mexican skillet breakfast perfect for an Easter brunch. It’s also a great way to use up leftover chicken.

Biscochos (Mexican Wedding Cookies) from Muy Bueno. Give each guest a plate of Mexican wedding cookies, which are a traditional pastry served in Mexico on this holiday.

Tres Leches from Muy Bueno adds a tropical twist to your dessert table with this delightful coconut cake.

 

Capirotada (Mexican Bread Pudding) from Muy Bueno is a Mexican Passover tradition. Many Mexican and Mexican-American families view this dish as a reminder of the suffering of Christ on the cross. The ingredients in this recipe carry a rich and symbolic representation. Check out this video on YouTube.

Bloody Maria with Serrano Infused Tequila from The Latin Kitchen. A spicy alternative to the standard Bloody Mary recipe, this serrano chile-infused Bloody Maria is deliciously festive for Easter.

Cascarones from Muy Bueno: These are not edible. They are festive, hollowed-out eggshells filled with confetti. Decorated, confetti-filled cascarones are crushed over the recipient’s head to shower him or her with confetti. This is a nice alternative to candy in your children’s Easter basket and a great Easter activity.
