How about some tasty guacamole to kick off a Mexican meal. Avocados and limes roughly mashed with salt form the basis of this recipe, but the addition of chopped coriander will give it that distinctive Mexican flavour! Our member, Kelly’s Fruit and Veg have all you need to make this great veggie side dish, so look out for them when you shop local!
Some chilli mince makes a delicious filling for your burritos and enchiladas – check out our Wicklow Naturally butchers for the best quality beef mince to make a flavourful chilli! Keith Grant Master Butchers and Doyle’s Butchers offer the finest quality local beef.
For a delicious cooking sauce for your mince, try one from our member Caffrey’s Sauces to give your dish a wonderful flavour.
Sweetcorn on the barbeque is always a tasty and healthy side, but did you know that our member Kilmullen Farm grows sweetcorn in Wicklow? It may not be ready for your Cinco de Mayo barbeque but be sure to watch out for it at harvest time. Kilmullen Farm shares the fascinating farm to fork process, and we at Wicklow Naturally will be happy to let you know when it’s ready to eat!
Of course, spicy sauces are a great addition to a Mexican meal, and in Wicklow, we have the best on the market! Mic’s Chilli’s range includes heat levels ‘from fire imp to hardcore chilli fan’!
A refreshing drink will wash down those spicy flavours. A cold beer is a perfect accompaniment, and we are spoilt for choice in Wicklow! Why not try a local beer from our members Wicklow Wolf, or Wicklow Brewery. There’s no end to the range of thirst quenchers in Wicklow!
