If you’re not sure what to make for Father’s Day, try out some of these easy Mexican food ideas. Instead of preparing the usual menu options for Father’s Day, you can enjoy classics like steak fajitas or fish tacos. Plus, there’s no need to be a grill master with these recipes! Here are a few recipes that you and your guests will love.
Let’s Taco ’Bout It
Forget the sloppy joes or the hamburgers. Try out these taco options for your Father’s Day BBQ. Not into meat or seafood? Mix it up with a grilled veggie fajita instead!
Carnitas Tacos: Pulled pork, Mexican style? Yes, please! Carnitas is cooked low and slow to create a taco filling that is as juicy as it is delicious! It’s one of our favorite taco fillings here at Los Primos, e.g., our Carnitas Michoacan with rice, beans, pico de gallo, and fresh-squeezed lime.
Chicken Tacos: Forget poached or baked chicken–try this slow-cooker chicken recipe instead. Why is this? The magic of the slow-cooker is in how easy it will be to pull apart your fully cooked chicken without drying it out! For a robust flavor, add chicken broth and spices like cumin, chili powder, and garlic – your taste buds will thank you! Don’t believe us? Try Los Primos’ Tacos al Carbon!
Fish Tacos: Choose a light, white fish option, like halibut or cod for a seriously New England-style taco with a kick. Serve these tacos with fresh lime juice and pickled red cabbage.
Margaritas + Dessert = Happy Fathers!
Don’t forget the drinks! Make homemade margaritas and sangria any way you like them! These drinks are super versatile, and they can be made without alcohol for kids to enjoy, as well.
Did you know? You can make your own margarita mix using powdered sugar and lime juice!
Finally, add something sweet for dessert. Stick with our favorites like churros or flan. For those looking to go the extra mile, bake a tres leches cake for that special dad.
