Host Your Party Like a Pro

Looking for inspiration for your next party? Consider hosting a Mexican-themed fiesta! With bright, colorful decorations, a fun playlist, and delicious authentic Mexican cuisine from Dos Amigas, you can impress your guests without breaking a sweat.

Invest in quality ingredients

Authentic Mexican cuisine relies on fresh, high-quality ingredients to bring out rich flavors and bold spices. Sounds daunting? Don’t worry. We got you covered! Dos Amigas offers various high-quality frozen meal options, including Carnitas, Barbacoa, Pastor, Chicken Tinga, Tomatillo chicken, Pollo en mole casero, and Pozole Verde with Chicken.

Consider your guests’ dietary restrictions:

Many people have food allergies or other forms of dietary restrictions, and a good host will have something that everybody can eat. Luckily, Dos Amigas meals are categorized by dietary needs (Including keto, vegan, and vegetarian) as well as allergens (like dairy, gluten, and nuts), so you can easily find suitable dishes for your guests. Even better, all items come cooked. You just need to defrost, heat, and serve!

Offer a signature drink

Mexican cuisine is never complete without refreshing and colorful drinks like horchata and aguas frescas, or a fantastic margarita. These drinks are easy to make and are a fun way to showcase your creativity and add a personal touch.

Serve a variety of tacos:

Tacos are a staple of Mexican cuisine and always a crowd-pleaser. Consider making a taco bar with carnitas, salsas, and grilled vegetables. Pressed for time? Try keeping our Taco Tuesday Kit on hand to make Chicken Tinga tacos easily. Delicioso!

Create a beautiful tablescape:

A proper fiesta needs vibrant decor to set the mood, and a beautifully set table can elevate the overall look and feel of the event. Start with an eye-catching centerpiece, add painted ceramic or terracotta trays for your bites, and include brightly colored woven tablecloths and napkins. The more color the better! Need some more inspo? You can find a ton of great ideas on Pinterest.

Set the mood with an authentic playlist:

Music can make or break a party. Set yourself up for success by creating a playlist ahead of time filled with lively, authentic Mexican music. Some genres to consider include mariachi, cumbia, ranchera, bolero, and mambo.

Serve unique desserts:

End your fiesta with a bang by serving a delicious Mexican dessert. Dos Amigas offers several authentic options, including Tres Leches cake, Guava Cheesecake, and Mexican Lime Pie. You can find all of our best-selling desserts here.
