Y’all the fact that Cinco de Mayo is next week is BLOWING my mind. Like wasn’t Christmas just 5 minutes ago. In case you are going to be home or thinking about having some people over, I wanted to round up some of my go to Tex-Mex recipes or cocktails/mocktails for Cinco De Mayo!

Drinks & Appetizers

Clayton’s Margarita by The Defined Dish

Whenever I choose to drink, I drink margarita’s and if I want a good margarita…this is definitely my go-to margarita recipe. It’s delicious, not to sweet, and super easy to make at home.

Watermelon Limeade Cocktail by The Defined Dish

I saved this recipe a while ago because it looks like the perfect light + refreshing summer cocktail! I haven’t tried it yet so if you have, let me know if it tastes as good as it looks! To me strawberry and watermelon cocktails are the ultimate refreshing drinks.

Restaurant Style Salsa by The Pioneer Woman

Chips and salsa never fail! this homemade recipe is light and refresh and not too spicy.

Chorizo Queso Fundido by The Defined Dish

Chorizo ALWAYS makes queso better! This recipe is always a crowd pleaser and will be gone in seconds.

Perfect Guacamole by The Defined Dish

My go-to recipe for guacamole! light and tasty and tons of flavor. I have tried so many different recipes and added so many different things like black beans, corn, tomatoes. The most important add I have learned is lime.

Entrees & Sides

This has become a healthy STAPLE in our house! You can make it feel cinco de mayo by serving it with tortillas and chips and salsa. It’s so easy, delicious, and healthy.
