21+ Mexican Christmas Traditions

With Christmas just around the corner, we are all thinking about how to make it memorable and also include traditions special to our family.   Today I am sharing 21+ Mexican Christmas Traditions that includes, food, decorations, traditions and ideas to make your Christmas memorable!

Mexican Christmas Food

The best way to stay warm on days like this is with a hot bowl of hearty pozole. We keep it simmering on the stove so we can savor it all day long. I keep sliced radishes, chopped onions, crushed herbs, and lime wedges in the fridge to add crunch and a fresh flavor that feels like summer. This recipe comes together fast with pantry staples, like @Knorr Knorr® Tomato Bouillon with Chicken flavor. Get the recipe at http://lbx.la/TPrH (clickable link in profile) and warm up with pozole in less than an hour. PLUS, get a peek inside Northgate Market! #sponsored #KnorrCelebrations #Liveforflavor

Pozole rojo is a classic Mexican recipe for the holidays, but takes hours to make. This quick Pozole rojo recipe can be ready in under an hour!
