Delicious Mexican Day of the Dead Recipes

El Día de los Muertos, or the Day of the Dead, is one of the most important and colorful celebrations in Mexico. Far from a sad or scary occasion, Muertos is a festive family commemoration of loved ones who have passed on— and, as with any party, food plays a major role.

Observed each year on November 1 and 2, Day of the Dead offers Kiwi families a great excuse to try the fun, vibrant, and tasty meals associated with Mexican cooking. We’ve collected our favourite Mexican-inspired fare to help get the party started.
