cinco de mayo favorites

I LOVE Cinco de Mayo! I love Mexican food for entertaining – its so easy and fun and casual.

Not to mention, I am kind-of well know for making an amazing margarita. Here is my super-dooper secret recipe. You will LOVE it!

Easy Frozen Margarita

1 can frozen limeaid
1/2 can triple sec
1/2 – 1 can tequila

Blend with ice. Serve in glass rimmed with salt. Designate a driver.

Some of my Cinco de Mayo staples?


These are the best black beans. My kids love these. We use them as a side dish or to make tacos! Although, carne asada tacos or carnitas are always a good option. For something a little more gourmet, try Cornmeal Crusted Tilapia with Salsa (amazing!!).
What are you making for Cinco de Mayo? This year I’m thinking I will try fish tacos! Don’t these look yummy?
