Un poco locos with excitement! Disney•Pixar "COCO" movie night + a Giveaway

3:48:00 PM

Disclaimer: We are part of the campaigning bloggers promoting the release of the film described in this blog post, alongside Allied Contigo. We received no compensation other than movie-related merchandise shown in this blog post, for the purpose of sharing it with our viewers via our movie-night event. Although we received the previously mentioned merch free of charge, all opinions are 100% honest and our own. Any and all promotional photos and information were provided to us for press purposes.

I am beyond excited to be celebrating the release of Disney•Pixar "COCO" with a themed movie night, and feel very honored to be able to share this experience with all of you. As you already know, I was born and raised in my dear old Mexico, and because of this, I am very attached to the tradition of celebrating the Day of the Dead. I really love to tell stories about my ancestors, especially my close relatives, in order to keep the memories alive; I think it's very important. Now that I am a Citizen of the United States, it brings me much joy to be able to share this beautiful tradition with my husband's family and my friends here in the US. To me, this movie represents how rich diversity is, and how wonderful adopting other cultural traditions may be to our own families.

Movie night was such a joy. It made me feel just like home to bring some elements of the Day of the Dead, and of the Mexican Culture together in one very entertaining home event.

Have you seen the tiny piñata in the picture above? How adorable is that? Piñatas are a very traditional and iconic element of Mexican celebrations, and they always brighten the spirit of any fiesta. Therefore, we definitely needed to incorporate this element to our Disney•Pixar "Coco" movie night, because we are not only celebrating the release of this inspiring film, but also being able to see ourselves represented in such a colorful and graceful way.

Alongside a digital copy of Disney•Pixar "Coco", we received quite a few movie-inspired merch that was sure to bring a lot of fun to our movie night. We got a fun collectible Funko figurine of Hector, we got a Disney•Pixar Coco DIY Picture Frame Kit, a Singalong Movie-Inspired Microphone, loads of stickers, and some inflatable decoration for our little fiesta.

To this, we brought to the table, some Day of the Dead sugar skull decorations, since they are the main representation of the Holiday, the flowers, and of course the food.

Marigolds are usually what is used during the Day of the Dead celebration, but because they are not in season, we decided to do something fun that I knew my family would enjoy. To decorate the table, we got some orange ranunculus, since they are very similar to marigolds, however, because Spring is around the corner, we bought some seeds. This way, we will be able to have home-grown marigolds to add to our ofrenda/altar on November. I believe that part of what makes ofrendas/offerings so special, is the fact that they are usually home-made. The food we place in the altars for our ancestors to enjoy, is usually made by the family. Therefore, if you're growing the flowers yourself as well, it makes the offering extra special, in my opinion. If your family loves gardening as much as mine, growing flowers together may also be a fun family activity to do during movie night.

Music is in my veins! Ever since I was a little kid, I was blessed to be exposed to diverse musical instruments, some of which I learned to play myself. From the first moment I saw "the guitar" played by Miguel in this movie, I totally fell in love with it. I connected with this feeling my tocallo Miguel had towards playing music; it was a very appealing emotion. It was very exciting to get some inflatable representations of this guitar to decorate our movie night display. I think that I am always going to use these when I decorate my altar for Dia de los Muertos: My grandmother would like that.

Did you know? Tocallo is a common word used in Mexico, to refer to someone whose name is the same as yours. It is a way to connect with someone, as an aspect you both have in common; your name. If your name is John, and you meet someone whose name is Juan, you are technically tocallos too. Tocallo - Singular (i.e. My tocallo is awesome.), Tocallos - Plural (i.e. We are tocallos.), Tocalla - female (used when your tocallo is a female, like in Miguel's case. I am  his tocalla, because Michelle is a version of the name Miguel).


And of course, one of the most important things about movie night; the food! We were having cravings for chilaquiles for a few days, so, movie night was the perfect excuse to indulge ourselves with a dish that my grandmother loved. chilaquiles are one of my favorite Mexican dishes to make, because they are very tasty and super simple to create. There are tons of recipes and videos online on how to make chilaquiles, but here is how I make them.

Here's what you need:

  • Corn Tortillas (we buy organic corn tortillas and use half to the whole packet).
  • Enchilada Sauce (although you can really use any thick sauce you want).
  • Half a white onion (but use as much as you truly want).
  • Grated Cheese (ideally you want to use white cheese. Traditional Mexican food does not include yellow cheese. However, you can use what you have in hand and that's okay too.)
  • Sliced Black Olives
  • Cooking oil to fry the tortillas (we use avocado oil).
  • Salt, Pepper, and Garlic Powder (and you can add any other spices you feel you'd enjoy).

Here is how I make them:

  1. Chop your onion into small dices. Slice the black olives into about four pieces per olive. Slice your tortillas to the size and shape you prefer. Grate the cheese.
  2. Place your tortilla pieces inside a big enough plastic bag, add some cooking oil inside the bag, close it, and shake well. You can add some spices here, or later on. Just leave the pepper until you are almost done with the whole meal, or it will change the flavor of your dish.
  3. Add cooking oil to your pan, making sure that the pan will fit all your ingredients. Once it gets hot enough, incorporate your chopped onions, and move them around for about two minutes. As they start to sizzle, and way before they start changing color, add your corn tortillas. Make sure that you are constantly turning them around so that they get evenly fried. However, be careful not to mush them too much. I like to use a tong to turn the tortilla pieces around. This helps avoid the mushing. 
  4. While your tortillas are getting crunchier, mix some of your spices into the enchilada sauce.
  5. Once  your tortilla pieces are crunchy enough to your personal preference, add the enchilada sauce and mix a little. Make sure that all of your tortilla pieces are covered in both sides. 
  6. You should monitor your chilaquiles, making sure that the tortillas do not stick to the pan, and turning them around often until the sauce is thick enough, and mostly absorbed by your tortillas. Here's where you have to eyeball it to your personal preference. Do you want them saucy, or not very saucy. Crunchy, or not very crunchy. Remember that after you fried your tortilla pieces, the sauce is going to soften them again. Therefore, if your tortillas weren't fried enough, your chilaquiles may turn into mush once you add your salsa; just something to keep in mind. 
  7. Once your chilaquiles are done, and you have turned off the flame. Add your slices of olives, and gently mix them with the chilaquiles. 
  8. Add your grated cheese so that it melts on top of the chilaquiles. I personally like to eat them this way, and my husband likes the cheese mixed within the chilaquiles. So when I make them for us, I just mix it in.
Chilaquiles are so versatile, that at restaurants in Mexico, you can find them with green salsa or with red salsa.

Once you have your chilaquiles ready, you can accompany them like we did, with: refried beans, and pico de gallo. Pico de gallo is also very easy to make, it's only: chopped onion, tomato, cilantro, lime juice, salt, and pepper (we also add about two tablespoons of olive oil, although it's not needed). Mix it all up, and tadaaaa--pico de gallo.

If you have leftover chicken, you can add this to the chilaquiles too, and it makes a great meal. Or, you can accompany the chilaquiles with eggs on the side for a delicious breakfast alternative. As I said, chilaquiles are very versatile and that is why we love them so much.

Buen provecho (Enjoy)!

Additional context: Frames play a key role in Coco/ Día de Muertos as they are used to display photos of loved ones that have passed and are placed on ofrendas/altars

Although in the movie, frames are used to display the pictures of family members or loved ones who have passed, I wanted to use this frame to add a photo of my brother and me. We are both, pretty much alive, but one day, when I am very, very old, and who knows, possibly gone too; I'd like my family to look at this picture and see us as we were; goofy siblings. Plus, this is my favorite picture of us, it deserves a fun frame.

I can't stop with this super awesome MP3 Microphone inspired by the movie. It has the Poco Loco song built into it, and I'm just letting my inner child sing the song, over, and over, and over again. Hey, I'm dressed as Miguel, aren't I, I'm trying to play the role here, haha!

Once we were set with the food, and after spending some creative time with the cool movie-inspired merchandise, it was time to sit back, relax, enjoy the food, the company, and Disney•Pixar "Coco".

I can't even begin to tell you how emotional this film was for me. I had a very close relationship with my grandmother, so this film really touched my heart.

The graphics are so colorful and so beautiful, that they gracefully lure you into the magical world they've created for the film. There is so much detail in the making of each scene, the characters, and the music, that I feel it should definitely be considered a masterpiece of the movie industry. It's hard to start describing all the wonderful feelings that I went through, while watching this movie, without becoming emotional about it. It's funny, insightful, whimsical, and it makes you feel the excitement that only a mariachi scream can.

The music was splendid, and I literally can't stop singing the songs. I was singing "Poco Loco" and "Remember Me" all day, and I believe that the whole talent behind the voices of each character, couldn't have been done by any other actor. Almost like these roles were meant to be for them. I loved it.

As a Mexican, I can say that everyone involved with the creation of Disney•Pixar "Coco" did an incredible job at studying and understanding different aspects of both our culture, as well as the celebration of one of the most adored Holidays of our Mexican Culture. Thus, being able to craft every single detail, into a very thoughtfully magical story that truly embraces our beloved festivity of Dia de los Muertos. This is not only coming from me, but from the many friends and family members who have already told me, how much they loved this film. I was able to tell that the whole team at Disney•Pixar, carefully studied many aspects of our culture, in order to tell the story, making everyone who sees it, understand why this Holiday is so precious. "Family" is the most important value in the Mexican Culture; Disney•Pixar "Coco" really embraced this sentiment, and was able to show the whole world about what it means to us Mexicans, in the most magnificent way. Because to us, family comes first, and family is not always blood either, it's those who are close, and who care.

If you feel this way about your family and friends who also become family, and you love to learn about other cultures, you definitely have to see Disney•Pixar "Coco"; already available on digital form via Movies Anywhere, and coming to Blu-ray, DVD, and 4K Ultra HD on February 27th, 2018.

Overall it was a beautiful movie-night event, and I feel like watching this film with your kids, is a great way to introduce this colorful Holiday to your little ones, without scaring them off. I think a new tradition is going to be added to our celebration of Dia de Muertos, thanks to this magnificent film.

I humbly wished there were enough words, to describe how grateful I am with everyone involved with the creation of this film. I feel so honored to have my culture represented the way Disney•Pixar "Coco" does, making it, an instant family favorite.

  1. I have yet to see Coco - but I am looking forward to seeing it on DVD. I recently learned that my great-grandmother kept journals, and have been able to read them. What a great sense of humor she had...something I didn't realize when I was younger.

  2. I haven't seen the movie yet. But I can't wait. We love family transitions and this will be a great family movie. @justicekeri on IG.
