Mexican-Inspired Thanksgiving Dishes to Try This Holiday

As Thanksgiving approaches, many of us look forward to the classics like turkey, stuffing, cranberry sauce, and the works. While these classic dishes hold a special place in our hearts, why not add a touch of spice and vibrancy to your Thanksgiving table this year? Join us this month as we embrace the delicious flavors of Mexican food and explore different recipes you can incorporate into your Thanksgiving table this holiday!

Turkey with Achiote Marinade

Give your Thanksgiving turkey a twist with a flavorful achiote marinade. Achiote, a spice derived from annatto seeds, imparts a rich, earthy flavor and a vibrant orange hue to the meat. For the best flavor, we recommend marinating your turkey overnight!

Sweet Potato and Chorizo Casserole

Replace the traditional sweet potato casserole with a Mexican-inspired version featuring spicy chorizo. The smoky and savory notes of chorizo complement the sweetness of the potatoes, creating the ultimate side dish. Top it off with a layer of melted Oaxaca cheese for extra flavor.

Cornbread and Green Chile Stuffing

Elevate your stuffing game by incorporating the bold flavors of green chiles. Mix them into your cornbread stuffing for a delicious kick that will have your guests reaching for seconds. 

Mole Gravy

Say goodbye to traditional gravy and say hello to the complexity of mole. This rich and flavorful sauce, often associated with Mexican cuisine, combines chocolate, chili peppers, and a variety of spices. Drizzle it over your turkey and side dishes!

Cranberry Salsa

Give the classic cranberry sauce a zesty makeover by preparing a cranberry salsa. Mix fresh cranberries with jalapeños, cilantro, and lime juice for a refreshing and spicy accompaniment that adds a burst of color to your Thanksgiving plate.

Tres Leches Pumpkin Pie

Put a Mexican spin on the traditional pumpkin pie by transforming it into a tres leches-inspired dessert! Soak the pie in a mixture of evaporated milk, condensed milk, and heavy cream for a lusciously creamy texture.
