Cinco de Mayo - with Discovery Foods with fun activities.

Cinco de Mayo is a Mexican celebration on 5th May. To celebrate, Discovery Foods sent me some of their products to try. We were sent a lovely bag full of products which included  a Perfect Fajita Kit, the *new* garlic and herb sour cream and a Fajita Cooking Sauce.

I decided on making the Perfect Fajita as I thought this would be great for all the family. 
You will need-
  • The Perfect Fajita Kit which includes 8 flour tortillas, a packet of medium salsa and Fajita seasoning mix. 
  • 500g of chicken breast, sliced into strips.
  • 1 medium onion slices
  • 2 peppers - 1 red one yellow
  • Cheese - Optional.

  • Prepare Chicken. Cut it into thin slices and prepare onions and pepper. Cook Chicken off for around 3 Min's and add oil and the seasoning mix. Wait around 3 minutes and add the onion and pepper. Make sure the chicken is well cooked. Note - If you are looking for milder fajitas use less seasoning.
  • Warm the tortilla in a frying pan for around 6 seconds. Make sure you do not burn the wrap. 
  •  Add cheese, salsa and herb sour cream sauce. Serve with salad and spiced wedges to make the meal out of this world.

This recipe really is very easy to make. The box states clear instructions of what you need to do and how to prepare the food. This meal is great for all the family and only takes a matter of minutes but tastes wonderful!
I was surprised to see that Maxwell also enjoyed a mini wrap I made him. I thought he may find the chicken spicy however this was not the case, he really enjoyed trying the tortilla and I would give it to him again.
I believe this is the perfect healthy meal.
I served my fajitas with salad and wedges but there are other options that you are able to serve it with. Why not try it with rice or potatoes?
I would rate the Discovery products we tried 5/5!

Whilst preparing the meal why not give the children the option to do something fun. You could give them something fun to colour in or You could get them to create a fun story time using toilet rolls to make a Mexican character.

You will need -
  • Toilet Roll
  • Coloured Paper
  • Foam shapes or Foam to make shapes
  • 2 Feathers
  • Googly eyes
  • Scissors
  • Glue

  • Cover the toilet roll in paper.Cut piece to size. Roll the paper round the roll and glue it into place.
  • Stick Foam on the roll to decorate it. Try to create a funny face or decorate with lots of bright colours.
  • Stick googly eyes in place. Bigger eyes can give better effects.
  • Add feathers for your characters hair, I find bright colours work best.
  • Finally add the stick so your character can come to life.

Disclosure: We were given these products by Discovery Foods to do this review and to enter a competition hosted by Britmums and Discovery Food.
