47 Celebratory Cinco de Mayo Meals

From Sweet Mexican Cuisine Mashups to Crispy Mexican Pastries

— April 29, 2013 — Special
Mexican food is always a great idea and these Cinco de Mayo meals are the perfect way to celebrate. Pick up some limes and and hot sauce, because things are about to get spicy.

I’m not kidding. There is really nothing more fun than making spicy, authentic Mexican dishes. My favorite thing about the food is that it is as colorful as it is flavorful—and judging by the vibrant ingredients in dishes like Mexican mash-up flatbread, your tastebuds are in for a fiesta.

Tacos, burritos, guacamole and salsa, Cinco de Mayo meals use fresh ingredients like tomatoes and avocado and combine them with spices like chili powder, cumin and paprika to make for dishes worthy of a celebration.

From rolled-up Mexican meals to healthy tortilla brunches, enjoy a Mexican meal on Cinco de Mayo and you’ll be happy you did.
