Cinco de Mayo recipe roundup of all Mexican food appetizers and dinners

It’s that time of year, everyone! You know what I’m talking about: May the 5th, also known as “Cinco de Mayo”… the one day that makes it perfectly acceptable to consume alarming amounts of chips, salsa, nachos, guacamole, and margaritas all day long. We love Mexican food in our house and have it often, so celebrating Cinco de Mayo comes so natural to us.  I had a hard time picking my favorites as far as Cinco de Mayo recipes, but here they are!  Enjoy!

    All of your dishes looks scrumptious, however, I think I want to start with your sour cream chicken enchiladas. Those were on my list to make the first time you posted it and I can’t wait to try this recipe. I also love your stuffed taco stuffed shells. Maybe I am craving something baked and cheesy but these look out of this world. Wishing you a super Cinco de Mayo.

    I love making breakfast burritos, but I’ve never thought of adding steak to them. That sounds like an awesome breakfast idea! 🙂
