I love Cinco De Mayo! I usually go out for Cinco De Mayo, to a bar or restaurant or a block party, but…sometimes I like staying in and cooking up a Mexican Fiesta in honor of one of my favorite holidays! Actually, I just realized that basically every holiday is my favorite holiday. I love anything that brings family and friends together…with food. And cocktails. Or beer. But it’s mostly the family and friends! These 5 Delicious Mexican Recipes for Cinco De Mayo are the perfect way to celebrate Cinco De Mayo – or even just a regular old Taco Tuesday – and you’ll find that you’ll want to add them into your regular meal plan – they’re that good!
5 Delicious Mexican Recipes for Cinco De Mayo
Let’s get right down to business with these 5 Delicious Mexican Recipes for Cinco De Mayo, shall we? There’s really no need to beat around the bush. On Cinco De Mayo, we either want a really good Mexican beer – NO, CORONA DOES NOT COUNT – or margaritas. While I have never been a huge fan of To Kill Ya – I mean, Tequila – it does taste mighty fine in a margarita! This Key Lime Strawberry Margarita Recipe is kind of a Miami thing…we throw key limes in just about everything. Especially me, as my neighbors have a key lime tree that hangs over into my yard and I help myself.
