10 Recipes for Cinco de Mayo

A round up of some of much loved recipes for your Cinco de Mayo celebration including easy creamy guacamole, steak fajitas, and more!

Because nothing screams ‘PARTY’ like a good ol’ taco bar.

I can’t imagine myself or anyone else being sad while standing around a table full of crispy tortilla chips, creamy guacamole, trays with steamy taco filling, and jars of various salsas and hot sauces. If I could make one request for my own funeral, it would be that there be a taco bar after the wake. But in the meantime, I’ll enjoy preparing delicious Mexican eats for my family and friends and sharing them with you here.

If you’re bringing Cinco de Mayo festivities home this year, I have a round up of delicious recipes you can make for your celebrations.
