Cinco de Mayo Inspiration

Happy Cinco de Mayo everyone!! I have to be honest, when this holiday falls during the week it's hard to get as excited as I did when I was in college. The fact that it fell on a Tuesday, just means that Taco Tuesday will be in a full effect and I'll need to add some fun fiesta touches to our dinner! 

To Drink//

Frozen Margarita//Strawberry Mojito//Prickly Pear//Dolled Up Mule

Let's be honest, mojitos and margaritas sound enjoyable just about any time, but on this day, it's almost mandatory! How delicious do these Sangria Swirled Frozen Margaritas look! 

To Eat//

Southwestern Quinoa//Baked Chicken and Spinach Flautas
Chicken Burrito Bowls//Shrimp and Avocado Salad

While we may end up making the Grilled Chicken Tacos from a few weeks back a  few of these recipes are mighty enticing! Specifically the Chicken Burrito Bowls! I've made the Zesty Lime Shrimp and Avocado Salad and it's a refreshing winner! 

To Enjoy//

Baked Churros//Sugar Cookie Tacos
Churro Cheesecake Bars//Mexican Brownies

I made these baked churros a little over a year ago and not sure why I haven't made them since because they are delicious!! Lisa's sugar cookie tacos would also be really delicious to eat and a little healthy too! 

How are you going to be celebrating Cinco de Mayo?

    Eric lived in Mexico City for two years and he LOVES to tell me that they don't celebrate their independence day on May 5th, so he's never been into celebrating Cinco de Mayo. Lame! Ha!

  66. I have an awful craving for Mexican food now! We often don't celebrate holidays on the actual day (husband is in upper management at one of the large retail chains), but I think I will make tacos in a few days! I also like frozen taquitos for when I don't feel like messing with a lot of ingredients. They go nicely with Bud Light Lime.

    ReplyDelete
  67. Those little fruit tacos are the cutest!!! I love any excuse to eat Mexican food :) We will definitely be enjoying some enchiladas and Mexican corn tonight.

    ReplyDelete
  68. I'm such a sucker for a mojito, yum!

  78. I want to try all of these. The prickly pear margarita (absolute fave) and churro cheesecake bars caught my eye specifically. I think Cinco de Mayo just needs to be a month long celebration.
