Celebrate Guacamole day with these Mexican recipes

The 16th September is ‘Guacamole Day’ and to celebrate we wanted to share a selection of our OMS Friendly recipes that would be perfect for a Mexican food themed get together. 

Mexican cuisine works well when following the OMS diet, not only because a lot of dishes are full of beans which provide a great source of protein, but also because recipes are full of fresh, zingy and spicy flavours. 

Here are a few of our favourites for you to try: 

Fajitas

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

These simple and easy fajitas pack a punch with fresh red chilli sprinkled on top. Add guacamole (see recipe below) to add even more flavour. Click here to make these tasty fajitas.
