Build a Brunch Filled With Zest and Flavor – Bud Light Chelada® x So Yummy

Sponsored by Bud Light Chelada®
So Yummy

Brunch should be anything but basic and boring. So Yummy wants to help you spice up your typical weekend spread by adding a healthy dose of zesty heat into the mix. That’s why we partnered with our great friends at Bud Light Chelada® to bring you all new brunch ideas that will leave you salivating.

Brunch does not automatically imply pancakes and eggs on your plate. Check out our original recipe for Chelada Birria Tacos. The richness of the stewed meat marinated in Bud Light Chelada® will take your love for tacos to a whole new level. If you’re looking to impress a few guests, serve up these tacos with our Cevicheladas for a memorable, surf-n-turf meal.

The best part about brunch is the versatility and variety that the meal has to offer. One thing we know for sure, Bud Light Chelada® makes an amazing beverage that takes any festivity from ordinary to extraordinary! See for yourself by having all four flavors at your next summer celebration!
