Say Olé! Amy’s Kitchen Salsas Into Cinco de Mayo With Festive Eats

As Cinco de Mayo approaches, organic food purveyor Amy’s Kitchen is giving you plenty to taco ’bout with a luscious lineup of festive eats guaranteed to spice up your fiesta. Known for its commitment to wholesome ingredients and delicious flavors, Amy’s Kitchen is bringing the vibrant tastes of Mexican cuisine to tables across the country.

This annual day of margarita-fueled fun and Mexican cuisine commemorates the Mexican Army’s victory over the French forces at the Battle of Puebla on May 5, 1862. While it’s a relatively minor holiday in Mexico, in the United States, it has become a day to revel in Mexican culture, cuisine, music, and more.

Amy’s Kitchen offers a tantalizing array of salsas to elevate your Cinco de Mayo spread to new heights — and no less an authority than Good Housekeeping agrees.

Amy’s Organic Medium Spicy Tomato Salsa was one of Good Housekeeping’s 2024 Snack Award Winners, and GH raved, “This salsa from Amy’s Kitchenhas been tweaked and tasted hundreds of times by the brand’s co-founders to deliver the ideal blend.”

From classic tomato salsas bursting with ripe tomatoes and fiery jalapenos to tangy salsa verde made with tomatillos and zesty lime, it has something to suit every palate. Amy’s even has a brand-new mole enchilada.

“Mole enchiladas showcase how we will push culinary boundaries in 2024 and beyond with delicious organic meal options that are cooked from scratch,” Fred Scarpulla, chief culinary officer at Amy’s Kitchen, said in a press release.

But the party doesn’t stop there. Amy’s Kitchen is also serving up mouthwatering refried beans to complement its sensational salsas. Whether you’re hosting a backyard barbecue or enjoying a cozy night in, these delectable eats are sure to be a hit with family and friends.

What sets Amy’s Kitchen apart is its commitment to quality and flavor. Made with organic ingredients and free from artificial preservatives, flavors, and colors, Amy’s salsas are as wholesome as they are delicious. Plus, they’re vegan, gluten-free, and non-GMO, so you can feel even happier about indulging in every bite.

Here are some flavorful favorites to spice up your life.

Cheddar Cheese, Beans, and Rice Burrito

Amy’s Kitchen’s burrito game is solid. With more than a dozen offerings of the classic Mexican favorite — including nondairy and gluten-free choices — the cheese, bean, and rice burrito has become an iconic food in the California company’s fleet of items.

Made with organic pinto beans, rice, veggies, and cheese in a mild Mexican-style sauce, Ian Casey, who interned for Amy’s Kitchen, declared it became a favorite when he discovered it was not only tasty but easy to make.

“During Finals, I found that I work best when I have something to snack on at my convenience,” Casey shared on amys.com. “The Bean & Cheese Burrito was the perfect snack because it allowed me to continue studying without a prolonged interruption. Every Finals week I make sure to grab a box of Amy’s burritos. I also love to add Tapatío on top of the burrito to give it some extra kick!”

Mole Enchilada

This reimagined Mexican classic features tortillas stuffed with a medley of vegetables, Monterey Jack cheese, and cheddar cheese, all topped with Amy’s intricate and richly flavored mole sauce. This sauce is meticulously crafted using chiles, spices, and chocolate.

Amy’s Kitchen begins by chopping fire-roasted poblano chiles, which are then mixed with organic zucchini, corn, rice, and beans. This combination is amply topped with Monterey Jack and cheddar cheeses, offering a hint of spice and a substantial dose of comfort. YouTuber Kevin Dunn of the Lunchtime Review said, “The vegetables are really good, The flavors are really good. It’s really good ingredients and flavors for me. I like the different textures.”

Cheese Enchilada

Who doesn’t love the gooey goodness of a cheese enchilada, especially when it takes just a couple of minutes to prep and is made with ground organic corn tortillas stuffed with cheese and smothered in Amy’s traditional enchilada sauce? “Seriously obsessed! These are so yummy!” a reviewer named Cedes shared on walmart.com. “I buy these all the time!”
