Cinco de Mayo Recipes 2015


The best Cinco de Mayo Recipes for celebrating the holiday. You will find all of your favorite Mexican dinners, appetizers and desserts here!

Cinco de Mayo Recipes for Mexican food appetizers, dinner, and desserts.

How is it almost May already?  I feel like it was just Cinco de Mayo 2014 and now it’s already a year later.  Indulging on chips, salsa, nachos, guacamole, and margaritas makes for a pretty good holiday, I have to say. Any excuse I can find to stuff my face with Mexican food is alright by me.

We love eating Mexican food in our house and have it at least once a week, so celebrating Cinco de Mayo comes so natural to us.  We are known to crush a huge abnormal-sized bowl of guacamole between the two of us on a regular basis.  That’s embarrassing, but I’m just keeping it real. I’m actually surprised that I haven’t turned green from all of the avocados I consume. You see why Cinco de Mayo is my jam?!

I spent some time collecting my favorite Cinco de Mayo recipes so I can make them easier to find for you!  Here they are, in no particular, very random, order:

Seven Layer Mexican dip recipe for Cinco de Mayo or game day.

Tres Leches cake is a great Mexican dessert made with three kinds of milk for Cinco de Mayo or any special occasion and topped with cherries.
