Mexican Food Catering - Rich Taste With a Twist

01/27/2017

When you’re looking for something your guests will truly enjoy, you can’t go wrong with Mexican food catering. This colorful cuisine offers a wide variety of dishes - and each of them seems like it’s more delicious than the last, and the rich flavor with just enough of a twist creates the perfect festive mood for corporate theme parties, your birthday party or any other celebration.

Mexican cuisine is a popular selection among our clients, and with good reason. There are plenty dishes to choose from when you create a menu, but there are a few essentials our clients constantly give us excellent feedback about. Our top three Mexican food catering selections include:

  1. Enchiladas. Dating back to the Mayan times, enchiladas remain a savory meal, suitable for both afternoon celebrations and evening events. Tortillas, filled with meat, seafood, vegetables, beans or all of these ingredients together and covered in a delicious chili sauce is simply a must-try!
  2. Chiles en nogada. This delicious traditional dish is a top selection for theme parties as it boasts all three colors of the Mexican flag. It includes delicious poblano chillies frilled with a mixture of chopped meat, fruits and spices, complimented by a walnut-based cream sauce and pomegranate seeds. This historic dish was first served to Don Agustin de Iturbide, who is known as the liberator and Emperor of Mexico.
  3. Tacos. Have you ever been to a Mexican themed party where tacos weren’t served? We haven’t. And there is a good reason why tacos are so popular - they are fun, delicious, easily customizable and come with plenty of fixings to suit every preference: onions, cilantro, lemon, guacamole, hot or mild red and green salsa… And they look good on your table, too!

Our other selections include include pico de gallo, guacamole, quesadillas, savory soups and stews, specialty seafood dishes, grilled fajitas, burritos and crunchy nachos… Everyone will find something that satisfies their palate - this is what makes hearty, well-cooked Mexican meals so popular all over the world. Rich in both colors and taste, and just simply delicious, Mexican food catering is sure to leave your guests satisfied.

Things to consider before you order Mexican food catering

If you decide you want Mexican food catering for your event, there are three things you should make up your mind about before calling your caterer:

  1. How many people are going to attend your event? Deciding on the headcount of your party helps in determining the number of nacho trays and tacos that your party will need, and will make the communication with your caterer much easier.
  2. Is your event in the morning, afternoon or at night? There are light Mexican dishes, that are more suitable for the earlier hours of the day, and then there are the heavier ones, perfect for parties that take place in the evenings, so taking this into account when creating your menu helps in perfecting your selection.
  3. What dishes do you personally prefer and want to be served at your event? If you just love tacos, make sure they’re included in your menu. If the person you’re throwing the party for can’t stop talking about how much they enjoy enchiladas, tell that to the caterer. This will create a customized, one of a kind selection that expresses the values and character of the occasion.
