Flavors for Cinco de Mayo

Feliz Cinco de Mayo!Cinco de Mayo is about more than just Mexico’s victory over France at the Battle of Puebla- It’s a celebration of Mexican heritage and traditions! This year, we’re highlighting some of our favorite Mexican flavors.

Visit our deli between May 1-6 to pick up some of these delicious salads and entreés:

  • Mango black bean salad
  • Chipotle potato salad
  • Southwestern enchilada pie
  • Green chicken enchilada pie
  • Roasted red pepper quesadillas
  • Pesto chicken quesadillas
  • Tres Leches cake

Saturday and Sunday, May 4 & 5, our deli will be serving a Taste of Mexico in the hot bar – try a variety of Mexican entrées and sides for lunch or dinner.

Our cheese department has sales on Queso Fresco and Cotija - authentic Mexican cheeses to add to your meals.

Plus, our produce departments are stocked with avocados and tomatoes for all your guacamole needs. Tired of your everyday salsa? Try mango salsa! Our mangoes are perfectly ripe and ready for salsa!  Just add diced mango to some minced onion, jalapeño and cilantro and squeeze fresh lime over everything for a fresh way to get your fruits and veggies.

Meet Whole Grain MillingConfused about how to properly cut an avocado or a mango?  Our produce managers show you how in these videos: avocado | mango  

Grab a bag of Whole Grain Milling or La Perla chips – they are both made locally and both work well for scooping guacamole and salsa.

Want to spice up any dish?  We recommend our Mississippi Market Made Chorizo.  Perfectly spiced, this sausage can be added to scrambled eggs, nachos, spicy tortilla soup or anything that needs a kick!
