Yo Quiero! presents 12 holiday recipes for food and fun

With 12 days left till Christmas, Yo Quiero! has a countdown calendar full of fun activities and tasty recipes!

  • Day 1: July in Christmas
    • Turn up the heat, put another log on the fire, and don your favorite Hawaiian shirts, flip flops and shorts and celebrate a day of summer. Here is a recipe of pineapple guacamole to go with your fruity drinks.
  • Day 2: Carol Karaoke
    • Pick your favorite Holiday songs, warm up those voice pipes and enjoy a fun night of carol karaoke. Homemade soft pretzels with white queso are perfect for a night of great tunes.
  • Day 3: Chrismukkah
    • Create a holiday night that encompasses all denominations. Read up on the different celebrations and share with your family and friends. Layered dip cups are individual cups loaded with holiday cheer and go with any celebration.
  • Day 4: Grinch Theme
  • Day 5: Winter Wonderland
  • Day 6: Brunchmas
    • Have brunch/breakfast for dinner. Remember the Bloody Mary’s and mimosas! Also, bring out the yummy avocado toast. So versatile and a fan favorite!
  • Day 7: Snack Crawl
    • Have each family member take a room in the house and create a snack station. Then, “crawl” from room to room sampling the great creations. You can even vote at the end to see who had the best snack! If you need inspiration, the loaded tater tots are the way to go!
  • Day 8: Looky Lighties!
    • Bundle up and take a walk around the neighborhood and look at all the different lights & decorations. Bring along a walking taco for energy. Not to mention it will keep your hands warm.
  • Day 9: Gangsta Wrap
    • Don’t want to wrap your gifts solo? Invite your friends over, with some wrapping supplies and wrap the night away. Here is the perfect charcuterie board for noshing.
  • Day 10: Coloring contest with blindfolds
    • Print holiday themed coloring pages and work in teams. One person is blindfolded, and the other person is directing where and how to color the picture. The group will then vote on whose picture was the best. Watch out Picasso! A picture-perfect holiday veggie tree will inspire and feed the teams.
  • Day 11: Chopped
    • Based off the Food Network show, find random items around your kitchen and have a contest on who can create the tastiest and most creative meal out of the ingredients. Cookie Cutter quesadillas are fun and could be used with a variety of fillings.
  • Day 12: Game Night
    • Have each person bring their favorite game and play. The person that wins the most games, gets a trophy…or maybe just bragging rights. Roasted corn dip with queso is a crowd pleaser. Enjoy with chips or veggies.

To help keep this season merry and bright, here is a list of holiday jingles.  Enjoy!
