Santa Maria and Day of the Dead

We have Halloween coming up and I love a good scare lol but just after we have the Mexican holiday Day of the Dead which is celebrated with festivals, parties and wonderful food and drink to come at the start of November . A time to remember long gone family and friends with a smile. So while you may think going by the name that its a creepy thing, its not . Its a joyful time and the day perfect for a Mexican party.

So I got to try some Day of the Dead must haves

Santa Maria's Taco Seasoning Mix a blend f chilli, cumin and oregano. Combined with a favorite filling such as Chicken, Pork r vegetables and serve n a crisp taco shell for a fab Day of the dead meal.

A Mix of chilli, garlic, coriander and oregano, the Fajita seasoning mix is guaranteed to add Mexican flavour to get together. Simply fry with your meat or vegetables for a tasty meal.

 Santa Maria's soft Plain Flour Tortillas are the perfect base for almost any Mexican food from fajitas to quesadillas and burritos. Something  everyone should have in the cupboard.

We made up our own recipe's but I will share a Santa Maria one with you too.
So we made a spice beef mince fajitas. We used this recipe but where it tells you to use chicken we used mince beef as its one of our faves.

Spicy Chicken Fajitas

Serves 4


1. Slice the chicken , onions and red peppers into thin strips.
2. Fry the chicken ( or minced beef for us) in a hot pan until golden brown. Add the onions and red peppers

3. Add the seasoning mix and lower the heat to medium. Cook for 3 minutes
4. Heat the tortilla wrap according to pack instructions
5. Place salad leaves on each tortilla and p with the fajita filling and guacamole
6. Gold and garnish with lime and coriander
7. Serve immediately and enjoy!

We added some salsa and Tortilla chips to ours and it was yummy. We can't wait to try out some more meals using these great products. There is lots of information and ideas to make your Day of the Dead get going over at the Santa Maria so make sure you check it out.
