Cinco de Mayo Dinner for 8? It’s a Snap with eMeals/Fresh Cravings Menu

Big on Flavor, Small on Prep Time, and Web-Shoppable for Fast Pickup or Delivery

BIRMINGHAM, Ala., April 26, 2023 /PRNewswire/ — Quick: how do you whip together a crave-worthy Cinco de Mayo dinner party without spending so much time in the kitchen that you’re exhausted by the time guests arrive? The Fresh Cravings Cinco de Mayo menu from meal inspiration leader eMeals does the trick – in part by using Fresh Cravings chilled salsas, hummus and dips to punch up the flavor of the four main dishes in a flash. (It’s the secret sauce – literally!)

Available free on eMeals’ Fresh Cravings Cinco de Mayo landing page or in the Occasions Plan in the eMeals app for subscribers, the menu is a perfect fit for a holiday that has become a celebration of Mexican culture in the United States. It includes:

  • Seven Layer Dip, anchored by a bottom layer of Fresh Cravings Jalapeño Cilantro Hummus and topped consecutively by a sour cream/taco seasoning mix, guacamole, cheese, tomatoes, jalapeños and cilantro
  • Street Corn Chicken Enchilada Casserole, another layered marvel featuring cubed chicken flavored with Fresh Cravings Pico de Gallo Salsa, Fresh Cravings Poblano Street Corn Dip and assorted other ingredients separated by corn tortillas and served bubbling hot
  • Easy Mexican Rice, a four-ingredient grain dish that gets its sparkle from Fresh Cravings Restaurant Style Medium Salsa
  • Tex Mex Chopped Salad, a tangy mix of romaine, black beans, avocado, bell pepper, pepitas and Fresh Cravings Pico de Gallo Salsa drizzled with a homemade make-ahead dressing 
  • Dulce de Leche Cheesecake with Chocolate-Cinnamon Crust, a springform dessert that perfectly complements the meal with wedges blending crushed chocolate wafer cookies, dulce de leche, cream cheese, eggs and heavy cream
  • Pineapple-Habañero Margarita, a pineapple juice/tequila/lime juice cocktail flavored with a homemade simple syrup of sugar, water and habañero pepper 

All recipes are one-click-shoppable from major retailers. Grocery lists are automatically generated based on the recipes selected by the consumer, enabling easy in-store shopping or seamless online grocery ordering with Walmart, Kroger, Albertsons, Safeway and the retailers served by Instacart and Shipt when placed through the eMeals app. One-click shopping is also available for select retailers through the Fresh Cravings Cinco de Mayo landing page.

The new Fresh Cravings Cinco de Mayo menu is the latest installment in the Occasions Plan portion of eMeals’ weekly meal planning service. The service includes a choice of meal plans for 15 different eating styles ranging from Quick and Healthy, Clean Eating and Low Calorie to Low Carb, 30 Minute Meals, Kid Friendly, Vegetarian and more.

Subscribers receive seven dinner menus for their chosen plan every week, along with the option to mix and match menus from any style, the ability to substitute favorites from previous weeks, and periodic Occasions Plan and Bonus Collection menus for recipes that may not fit into the nightly dinner category. Subscriptions cost as little as $5/month.
