Cinco de Mayo… Ahh, what a delicious holiday. Yeah, yeah, I know. It’s a holiday that celebrates Mexico’s victory over the French on May 5, 1862. But, dang, celebrating their victory with a delicious dinner is just fine by me. Our neighbors to the south know what their doing when it comes to their amazing cuisine and I’m not ashamed of how much I love it!
If your going to be staying in this Cinco de Mayo or if you are planning on having a blow out fiesta with friends, check out these recipes below. I took a look back at my recipe collection and my love is clearly evident… I can’t say that ANY of these recipes are even slightly authentic but they are definitely inspired by south of the border flavors.
Grab yourself a basket of chips and a bowl of salsa, maybe a margarita or two, and celebrate!
