The BEST Cinco de Mayo Recipes from appetizers to side dishes to main dishes to desserts all in one place!
Cinco de Mayo Recipes
Cinco de Mayo is just around the corner and even though we’re all on lockdown, it doesn’t mean we cant fiesta-in-place! Growing up in San Diego, California, I’ve always loved Mexican food and love creating restaurant-worthy Mexican recipes at home. Cinco de Mayo is a fabulous excuse to round up the best of the best Mexican recipes and take a trip down memory lane.
It was hard narrowing down the best Cinco de Mayo Recipes from my very first post of Hawaiian BBQ Chicken Taquitos (one of the ugly ones but DELISH) when I was still working full time in corporate America, to my Fire Roasted Restaurant Blender Salsa (5 Minutes), the first recipe I shot with a new lens and nearly every photo was blurry because I didn’t know what I was doing!, to my Honey Lime Chipotle Chicken Fajita Bowls I made for Christmas dinner five years ago – every recipe lives in my heart and longs to get in my belly once more.
I am proud of all these Cinco de Mayo Recipes (even if not the photos), or in other words, I think they are DELICIOUS and worthy of your time and your heart. I hope you have fun trying some of these new Cinco de Mayo Recipes this year and continue trying them all year long! xoxoxo To see ALL of my Cinco de Mayo recipes at a glance, click here.
