Mexican Tuna Ceviche with Guacamole, Salsa and Nachos

Mexican Fiesta FeastCeviche has got to be one of the best ways to eat fish. We’ve used meaty tuna for this dish and cured it with a mix of fresh lime juice, chopped chillies, red onion and chives.

Served alongside is a pile of nacho chips from the Old El Paso Mild Nacho Kit to scoop up all that goodness. And what would nachos be without a generous pile of guacamole? We’ve used Old El Paso Spice Mix for Guacamole, which gives your avo smash all the necessary Mexican flavours… and all you have to do is mix it in!

This is a great way to kick off a dinner party with friends – pop down in the centre of your table and let everyone tuck in.

Elotes – Mexican-style Grilled Corn

Mexican Fiesta FeastElotes are one of Mexico’s most famous forms of street food and we can totally see why. Whole sweetcorn cobs are grilled over hot coals until nicely charred and then slathered in a mix of sour cream and mayo – forget plain old butter, this is the way you want to eat them!

We’ve seasoned the creamy mayo mix with Old El Paso Roasted Tomato & Pepper Fajitas Spice Mix for added flavour and topped with a generous grating of Parmesan cheese and a sprinkling of coriander. Once you sink your gnashers into these you’ll be transported straight to the streets of Mexico City.
