Casino Party Snacks Inspired By Mexico

There’s never a bad time for Mexican-inspired casino party snacks. We’re always craving fresh chunky salsa, incredibly creamy queso as well as layers upon layers of nachos. Homemade guac is a frequent occurrence!

These easy appetizers satisfy every casino snacking need. Whether you prefer something fresh as well as cold or mini and melty, we have healthy appetizers (including vegetarian and gluten-free!) in addition to decadent ones (behold, charred peppers with queso blanco) for your next casino party. Ditch the forks and knives! These fun finger foods are designed to be relished casually at a casino evening with a crowd. The only supplies which you’ll need? A bag of really crispy corn chips, of course!

Avocado Dip

Charred poblanos, garlic as well as jalapeño amp up the flavour of this zesty dip. Serve it with some crudités (or totchos!) for a fiesta-friendly appetizer. Other ingredients that you’ll need are garlic, olive oil, cilantro as well as lime, salt and totchos.

The secret to great guacamole is beginning with a paste that is made with onion, coriander/cilantro, jalapeño or serrano chilli as well as salt. This is the real deal. No one can ever really place their finger on why it tastes so good – they just know it’s better.

Vegan Queso

Talk about a dish which always is a crowd-pleaser! This creamy cheese fits in with many different diets. The dip is gluten-free, paleo, Whole30 in addition to vegan. It’s a super addition to any casino party.

Chicken Suizas Nachos

Salsa verde and sour cream, that is tossed with shredded chicken, results in a crave-worthy twist on the classic nachos. A top tip is to toss the ingredients together rather than layering for the perfect bite every time!

The ingredients are:

  • 1 large poblano pepper
  • 1 tbsp. olive oil
  • 1/2 c. prepared salsa verde
  • 2 tbsp. sour cream
  • 2 1/2 c. fresh cilantro, divided
  • 2 1/2 c. shredded white-meat rotisserie chicken (from 1 chicken)
  • 6 oz. tortilla chips (about 7 cups)
  • 8 oz. Muenster cheese, coarsely grated (about 2 cups)
  • 1/4 small white onion, finely chopped
  • 4 small radishes, thinly sliced

Charred Peppers With Queso Blanco

Who needs nachos at a Mexican-themed casino night when you have sweet and smoky peppers on a bed of creamy cheese that is topped with crushed tortilla chips?

Mexican Grilled Corn

This classic Mexican street snack is easy to make at home: slather the corn in sauce, roll in cheese and repeat for all of the other corn cobs.

Elote (otherwise known as Mexican Street Corn) is an incredibly popular antojito (small craving or street food) that you are able to find all over Mexico as well as the US. It’s often served on a stick, although you could skip the skewer and make it straight on the grill.

If you are a mayo-hater and are worried about this recipe won’t be for you, think again. Elote will have you re-evaluating your stance; or, at the very least, make one incredible exception. The mayo becomes more of a creamy sauce, absorbing the flavour of the chili powder, cotija cheese, and lime juice.
