Celebrate Cinco de Mayo with the top family friendly Mexican recipes.

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!

Have a low carb taco night with these cheese taco shells made from baked cheddar cheese formed into the shape of a taco! Stuff your low carb taco with ground chorizo and ground beef cooked in Rotel and topped with diced avocado and sour cream.

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!
