By Berit Bancroft April 27, 2018

Get ready for a complete Mexican fiesta for Cinco de Mayo with a visit to Roche Bros.

Here is a guide to making your celebration flavorful and festive:

Serve an array of dips and chips: Everyone loves a table full of chips and dips, especially on Cinco de Mayo. From fresh guacamole to pico de gallo, Our Kitchen has the Mexican dips covered. Or visit the produce section and pick up fresh Hass avocados to make your own.

Don’t forget the chips! Find your favorites in the grocery aisle, such as local Mi Nina All-Natural Tortilla Chips, or take it up a notch with our homemade chips. Make it easy with our Sheet Tray Nachos recipe Or make steak nachos with Carne Asada Marinated Skirt Steak from our Butcher Shop.

Set up a make-your-own taco bar: Give everyone at your party the chance to make tacos the way they like them with a taco bar. Serve up your choice of pulled chicken tacos, or try all three: Fiesta, Teriyaki Pineapple and BBQ-Corn. Add marinated seafood from the Seafood Department to the spread, with Chipotle Chipotle Cherry, Mango Coconut Pepper, and Sweet Chili Lime flavors. For toppings, there are many options, including fresh guacamole, sliced jalapeno, shredded cheese and more, so everyone can assemble their own. And find soft and hard taco shells in the grocery aisle.

Offer a festive main course: In the meat department, select from three Ready. Chef. Go! meal options with a Mexican flair, all ready to cook in a microwave or oven-safe bag.Choose fromChipotle Chicken Thighs with potatoes and asparagus, Baja Spiced Boneless Chicken Breast with summer squash, zucchini and red peppers, and Mojito Lime Chicken Kabobs with red onion and red and green peppers. Or go for a Mexican-inspired burger, with Certified Angus Beef Prime Grinds Beef & Chorizo Burgers.

Spice up your salads: From the deli, pick up our new Mexican Quinoa Salad. Mix up a black bean salad with chopped peppers, onions, cilantro, and lime. Make a spicy corn salad with corn with paprika, cayenne, lime juice and some mayonnaise. Or turn the taco bar into a taco salad bar with extra greens and veggies.

Pair it all with beer: Don’t forget the Mexican beer! From Corona to Dos Equis (XX), find a wide selection of options at Roche Bros. in Downtown Crossing, Sudbury, West Roxbury, Westwood, Marshfield and Wellesley.

Have a fun Cinco de Mayo celebration!
