Six Quick and Easy Cinco De Mayo Recipes
From apps to entrees and even dessert, here’s everything you need to whip up a fun Cinco De Mayo feast without much fuss.
We are big popcorn fans. Not only is popcorn delicious and versatile, it’s also considered a whole grain and provides fiber. This helps keep you feeling full. This Mexican Popcorn from Culinary Ginger combines Mexican spices like chili powder, cumin and smoked paprika with lime zest and cojita cheese for a flavorful appetizer or snack. You could scale down the amount of butter and salt by half without affecting the deliciousness!
Sure, there are plenty of guacamole recipes out there on the web, but having a really flavorful traditional, and simple guac recipe in your entertaining toolbox will make you feel confident you can always impress guests (and yourself!) We think The Best Guacamole by Cookie and Kate is the one recipe you need.
You’ll almost always find sweet potatoes in both of our kitchens. They’re delicious and versatile. Also, they are packed with beta carotene, fiber, and slowly digesting carbs. When we tried this recipe by Cook Nourish Bliss, we knew it had to be shared. These Mexican Sweet Potato Skins by Cook Nourish Bliss pack in all of your favorite nacho-like toppings, including melty cheese atop a twice baked sweet potato. They are SO YUMMY.
If you’re looking for no fuss, this recipe will not only allow you to fill guest bellies but get you great reviews as well. Best of all, you won’t have to spend much time at all prepping it. Just one skillet and you’ll be left with yummy bowls of burrito filling goodness. To end, top with all your favorite burrito toppings.
What’s a Cinco De Mayo party without tacos?? These tacos are simple to prepare and filled with fresh Mexican flavors. Solid White Albacore Tuna is paired with crunchy cabbage, black beans, creamy avocado and cojita cheese. We love that there’s no cooking involved here…more time to enjoy the party!
No celebration is complete without dessert! We love this simple ingredient list for these rich chocolate-y pots of decadent yumminess from Wicked Spatula. Desserts often involve dairy and gluten, but this one is perfect if you’re entertaining people who can’t eat either. Your dairy and gluten eating friends won’t know the difference!
