15 Cinco de Mayo Recipes


I feel like Cinco de Mayo is holiday just made for me.  I mean, do you know how much Mexican food we inhale at our house on the weekly?

Hint: a lot.

And any excuse to stuff tortillas chips and salsa into my mouth and follow ’em with a generous slug of frozen margarita or a fruity sangria is right up my alley.  In fact, we started off the weekend doing just that.  I’m celebrating early, with the party going through the weekend!

Just in case you’re looking for a few last minute recipes for a Cinco de Mayo celebration of your own, I threw together a list of a few of my favorites.

Hello There!

Interestingly enough, I didn’t grow up with an interest in cooking.  In fact, I informed my mother on multiple occasions that I was not getting an advanced education so I could spend my evenings preparing meals.
