We love Mexican food all year round. Authentic Mexican dishes, Tex-Mex, you name it, we’re on board. Check out these vegetarian or seafood dishes that are perfect for the Lent season. Plus, a traditional Lent dessert too.
For inspiration on our Mexican Lent menu, we checked in with Herdez, the number one salsa brand in Mexico. It’s colorful, taste so fresh and is perfect for dipping simply with chips and is high-quality enough to use in cooking too.
