It’s that time of year again! Cinco de Mayo celebration time! To help you get the party started, here are 13 quick, easy and refreshing recipe ideas to help you prepare for your festivities.

To start off, I am the biggest fan of casserole and sheet-pan recipes. Not only are they packed with flavors and ingredients, they are also time saving and delicious. Two of my favorite go-to recipes to make are my green enchiladas and shrimp fajitas. Both are delicious and perfect for any Cinco Fiesta!

Next, you can never go wrong with serving tacos or carnitas of any kind. Both are Mexican classics and a favorite for party-goers. I like to make my carnitas with chicken and serve soft tacos with either shredded beef or chicken. Sprinkle in some black beans, avocado and onions and you are good to go!

And let’s not forget the side dishes, or in this case, complements to your tacos / carnitas. My favorites are: Black Bean Dip, Mexican Street Corn Salad, Guacamole Salad and Queso with Crispy Chorizo Dip.

It’s always a good idea to serve some sweets at any party, especially a latin party. When it comes to a a real Mexican party, you must serve Churros! I serve mine with two dipping choices: chocolate syrup or caramel dip.

Lastly, no party is complete without a selection of classic Mexican Tequila cocktails! My go-to’s are my Margaritas (Peach, Dragonfruit and Classic) and my Grapefruit Paloma! These delicious, tangy, fruity, refreshing cocktails will guarantee that you have a memorable celebration. Enjoy!
