Cinco de Mayo is just around the corner, so I’ve rounded up some of my favorite Mexican-inspired recipes to help you celebrate!
Do you celebrate Cinco de Mayo? If you asked me 10-15 years ago, I’d have my hand raised high in the air, but these days it’s a little more low key.
Even though we aren’t big on celebrating Cinco de Mayo at this point in our lives, we still love #TacoTuesday, which all of these recipes work perfectly for! Luckily, Emily loves Mexican food too! We usually keep the spices pretty light on her portions and sometimes I make her deconstructed versions of what we’re having, meaning I serve her each component of the meal separately and not mixed together. She loves black beans, corn, tomatoes, avocado and those typical Mexican ingredients, but sometimes not all combined into one dish. That’s really easy to do on most of these ideas.
I didn’t even realize how many Mexican inspired recipes I had on my site until I put this list together. I’m not a huge spicy-foods lover, but I do love so many of the fresh and vibrant veggies involved with a lot of Mexican recipes like avocado, tomato, cilantro, peppers and corn! Oh, and don’t forget the guac and sour cream (or Greek yogurt) on the side 🙂
I’ve rounded up my favorite recipes from my site that I think would be perfect for Cinco de Mayo as well as some other yummy ideas from a couple of my favorite local food bloggers – Enjoy!
