40 Cinco de Mayo Recipe Ideas

One of the great things about the start of May is Cinco de Mayo!  If you follow me on Instagram, you probably notice a trend on Friday evenings: margaritas and guacamole.  We have a great little Mexican restaurant in our neighborhood that we go to just about every Friday night.  Clearly, we love Mexican food 😉 

Cinco de Mayo brings an extra reason to celebrate Mexican culture and a great way to do that is through food and drink.  So, I am here with 40 Cinco de Mayo recipe ideas to get you started!

Now, of course, some of these recipes are 100% authentic Mexican recipes but I think they capture a lot of the flavors of Mexican cuisine.  One thing they definitely all have in common is that they look 100% delicious. 

Now, that you have a list of recipes that you have to try, be sure to take a look at this great collection of cocktails to compliment your food at the Cinco de Mayo party :)
