Cinco deÂ Mayo is approaching fast. Â This fun holiday celebrates the Mexican army’s defeat of the French army back in the 1860s, but now it is the perfect day to celebrate Mexican culture and food. Â So here is a collection of 18 delicious recipes that would enhance any Cinco deÂ Mayo event. Â Whether you are planning a party or just serving tacos at home there is something here for every taste!
Tortilla chips are a must for Cinco de Mayo, so why not make your own chips using this recipe from Mission to Save.
This Pico deÂ Gallo from Modern House Wife would go perfectly with the tortilla chips.
More great dips are this Cheesy Fiesta Black Bean Dip from A Cedar Spoon,
or this more traditional Smokey Black Bean Dip, also from A Cedar Spoon.
This Southwestern Corn Salsa from Delightfule Made is colorful and tasty.
And no Cinco de Mayo party would be complete without Guacamole!
For something different you can make my Mexican Tomato Soup with Corn Dumplings.
Chicken Tacos like these from Tasting Page make a delicious main course.
And if you prefer Beef Tacos check out my Shredded Taco Beef recipe.
Casseroles are always good for parties, like this Cheesy Chicken Tortilla Bake from Frugal Mom Eh.
Or this creative Tortilla Chip Mexican Pizza from Tastes of Lizzy T.
AndÂ Chile Rellenos Casserole is one of my personal favorites.
Margaritas are another tradition, and these Blood Orange Margaritas from HezziD’s Books and Cooks look delicious.
And so does this Mango Coconut Margarita from Snappy Gourmet.
But if you prefer Mojitos to Margaritas try out this Melon Mint Mojito from Delightfule Made.
