Cinco Recipes for Cinco de Mayo

Cinco de Mayo is one of my favourite ways to kick off summer. If you're like me, you love the holiday not only for the history, but also the way it is celebrated. That's why I've complied my top 5 Cinco de Mayo recipes.

When I think of Cinco de Mayo food, I think of tacos, nachos with guacamole, and margaritas. Although I haven't included all of those things in this, I think you'll still like these as they are all recipes to make up an entire meal with a side, rather than appetizers or drinks. However, I'm sure I'll share my favourites of those another time.

These are my top 5 recipes that I've put out over the years. So let's get into them!

Slow Cooker Chicken Enchiladas

A recipe of quick and easy prep for a perfect weeknight supper that you and your family will love! Slow cooked chicken and peppers, wrapped in tortillas, covered in tomato-based sauce, sprinkled with cheese. Where could you go wrong? This is for those who need a low-maintenance supper to celebrate the holiday.

Chicken Jalapeño Tacos

These are my slow-cooked Chicken Jalapeño Tacos with Pineapple and lime aioli. With tropical fruit and chilies slow cooked with the meat, accompanied with refreshing pineapple, lime juice, and creamy sauce, these are so good!

30-Minute Chicken Fajitas

Fajitas are one of my favourite easy suppers because you can make them all in one pan, add tons of vegetables to make them healthier, and add all the different sauces you like. Plus, everyone can make their own to their liking at the dinner table. If you're either looking for an easy family meal or something to celebrate Cinco de Mayo with, these are for you!

Poblano Shrimp Quesadillas with Pineapple Salsa

My Poblano Shrimp Quesadilla recipe is an amazing recipe. With mildly spicy poblano peppers, shrimp, melty habanero cheese, topped with fresh, sweet Pineapple salsa and lime crema, this recipe will be you're new favourite!

Grilled Corn & Pulled Pork Taco Salad

This is a super simple and tasty salad that will fill you up with all the good vegetables, creamy goat cheese, crunchy tortilla chips, pulled pork, and a lime mayo. This is a great lighter option!

Enjoy Cinco de Mayo!
