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
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.
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.
Chips and salsa never fail! this homemade recipe is light and refresh and not too spicy.
Chorizo ALWAYS makes queso better! This recipe is always a crowd pleaser and will be gone in seconds.
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.
y’all these instant pot tacos are as good as they look if not better. I love that you can throw everything in the instant pot and just forget about it. It also makes a decent amount which is great if you’re having a lot of people over. Everyone will be asking you for the recipe!
Perfect to throw on the grill and serve it with your tacos!
Another great side if you are doing tacos or a tex-mex dinner!
I mean, the only word to use here are YUMMY!
I am OBSESSED with anything that includes lemon but i’ve never tried to make one. The key lime pie bars seem slightly less intimidating and look SO delicious!
Do you guys have plans for Cinco de Mayo? If not, I hope this post inspires you to invite some friends over, enjoy yummy food and a fun night! As always, thank y’all for stopping by and reading. I will see y’all back here next time.
