Delimex Fiesta


And if you remember I told you we’ve been watching college basketball, which has been fun.

For our recent game day gathering, I decided to get some Delimex® Frozen Appetizers from the frozen section of my local Walmart. (They are in the frozen Snacks and Appetizers section).

They are just perfect for the times when you have people come over and you need something quick and simple to serve.

I got Delimex Beef and Cheddar Rolled Tacos and Delimex Chicken Taquitos. The packaging and instructions are great, I cooked mine in the oven at 400 F for 11 minutes. They were perfectly cooked, crispy and full of flavor.

I made my Homemade Blender Salsa and Blender Guacamole to accompany them and also some cilantro lime rice.

Cilantro Lime Rice

I’ve been craving cilantro lime rice for a couple of weeks now and this was the perfect excuse to make some. It is very easy to prepare and takes only 20 minutes. Tastes even better than Chipotle’s and the best part – you can have as much as you want.

This cilantro lime rice was the perfect addition to this Mexican menu.

1. You start with good quality rice like jasmine or basmati (I used jasmine).

2. Cook rice according to instructions on the package ( Mine were: For 1 cup of rice, bring 2 cups salted water to a boil. Add rice and deduce heat to low. Cover and simmer until cooked and water has evaporated. Fluff with fork). Let rice cool to room temperature.

3. In a small bowl mix together 3 Tbsp fresh chopped cilantro and juice from one ripe lime. Add mixture to the cooked rice and mix to combine. Season with salt.

  1. Cilantro lime rice is one of my favorite side dishes for a Mexican dinner! I can even eat it for lunch by itself.. can’t get enough!

  2. I love Delimex’s taquitos, they are awesome! I love this cilantro lime rice you made to go with them too, sounds delicious!

  3. We love grabbing the Delimex taquitos for quick meals. Your cilantro lime rice looks amazing. Yum! Can’t wait to try the recipe myself! #client

  4. That rice looks heavenly! Love all your step by step instructions and totally obsessed with Mexican food 🙂

  5. I have totally missed the boat on this cilantro lime rice! Can’t wait to try it. Do you serve it cold?

    1. Hi Kimberly, I hope you like it! I like it both cold and warm, but I usually make a bowl like the ones at Chipotle, where I add salsa and guacamole top, so cold works a little better for me. Let me know 🙂
