With the 2015 holiday season in full swing, now comes the festivities! One of the more traditional Mexican celebrations is Las Posadas. Las Posadas (Spanish for “the inns”) is the nine day celebration and reenactment of Joseph and Mary’s search for an inn to rest at before the birth of Jesus. It’s been a tradition for over 400 years and is celebrated with music, piñatas, and lots of amazing food.
My family celebrates Tex-Mex style with tamales, enchiladas, and plenty more. I have included one of my favorite recipes using HERDEZ salsa – holiday season or not, it’s a perfect addition to any fiesta year round. If you love a combination of sweet and spicy, you will love this twist on traditional Pico de Gallo!
The HERDEZ brand is having a contest on Instagram. You can share in the celebration of #MisPosadas contest, which goes through January 6th. Each week, a fill in the blank question relevant to the holiday will be posted for fan to answer with a photo. Three top winners will win great prizes including a personal chef party!
