This menu is all about bold flavors. For the main, we’ve chosen their Grilled Baja Fish Tacos.

You’ll create a creamy tarragon coleslaw that cools each bite while adding a light a refreshing experience. These tacos come with a sweet corn on the cob that you’ll grill to perfection and slather in ancho-lime butter that will immediately transport you to the Baja coast.

We’ve also thrown in our popular Roasted avocado and jalapañeo salad to this menu. Made with crunchy onions, creamy avocado, tangy cotija and fiery peppers, you’ll experience a wide range of flavors in every bite.

Round out all of the flavors in this meal with vibrant White Chip Lemon Bars. Not too sweet, not too tart, these lemon bars possess just the right amount of everything. This dessert meal kit serves eight guests, giving everyone what they want—more dessert.

Not ready to give up the bun just yet? You won’t have to with a piping hot, gooey, spicy Philly Cheese Steak from David Olsen.

After years of traveling and learning the best cooking practices from chefs around the world, he’s developed a tantalizing menu that will help you experience flavor combinations you would’ve never thought of before.

The star of this menu is bold and hard-hitting. Juicy, grilled flank steak is sautéed with heaps of sweet peppers, onions, and mushrooms until caramelized to perfection. Stuffed inside a lightly toasted hoagie bun and smothered in provolone, it really doesn’t get any better.

We’ve paired this sandwich with a Sweet Potato Fries and Chipotle Aioli because who doesn’t love a good sandwich and fries? These fries are sweet, salty, and crispy, giving you the perfect balance to this hearty meal. The fiery chipotle aioli gives these sweet fries the kick they need without being overbearing.

For dessert, we’ve added our ever-popular No-Bake Toffee Fudge Bars to satisfy your chocolate craving after a salty meal. With heaps of HERSHEY'S Semi-Sweet Chocolate Chips and marshmallows atop a buttery graham cracker crust, these bars will satisfy any sweet tooth.
