Cinco de Mayo Recipes
It’s fiesta time!!! Here are my top 10 Cinco de Mayo Recipes that your family will say arriba too!
I may not be Mexican, but I love any excuse to celebrate! Cinco de Mayo is all about good food and drinking lots of Corona. Well not so much of the drinking part now that I have 2 small kids. Weekend mornings just aren’t the same! A siesta after a great meal sounds more appealing these days. Here are some of my favorite Cinco de Mayo recipes!
These cheesy taco shells amazing whether you are eating low carb or not! Spicy chorizo and cool avocado stuffed in a shell of melted cheese? Yes please!
These Slow Cooker Beef Taquitos couldn’t be any easier to make, all you need is a few minutes of prep time in the morning and then just pop them in the oven after they have been cooking all day in the slow cooker. My daughter loved them!
I love a good sauce, and this is a GREAT Chimichurri sauce! Lime juice and garlic are my go-to flavor combinations. This Chimichurri Recipe is easy to make and extra can be frozen so you can add a little zing to your next meal.
These Mexican Meatballs are perfect for your Cinco de Mayo party. You can make them ahead of time and freeze them too. Your guests are going to need something to munch on after all of those margaritas ;).
We made these Tequila Citrus Shrimp skewers the other day, they only took a few minutes on the grill and were full of flavor. Serve them with cilantro rice or serve as an appetizer.
It wouldn’t be Cinco de Mayo without a classic like Guacamole! I bypass the chips and eat this by the spoonful. My kids love guacamole thanks to Chipotle.
You’re going to want to make a double batch of these Chicken Enchiladas and freeze them for later in the week. I love a great freezer meal!
Loving these Shrimp Tacos, the chipotle crema drizzle was amazing! I may have gone overboard with the drizzle- don’t judge!
You can’t beat homemade fajitas. These Chicken Fajitas only take 20 minutes to make, great weeknight meal for the family.
This Slow Cooker Beef Barbacoa cooks in beer! No hangover needed to enjoy this recipe 🙂
Enjoy this Corn Salsa with chips or as a side to one of the yummy recipes above. The salsa is crunchy, colorful, and made with fresh (and healthy!) ingredients.
