Cook up special Cinco de Mayo-inspired dishes.

Nothing says Cinco de Mayo like authentic Mexican food. A few popular options are:

Guacamole and tortilla chips

When it comes to making delicious guacamole, the key is to keep it simple. Guac is meant to be easy breezy. All you need is a few high-quality *fresh* ingredients that complement one another. Plus, homemade tortilla chips are super yummy and much healthier than store-bought crisps.

Carne asada tacos

This simple recipe features a delicious marinade, diced onions, cilantro, and fresh lime juices. Just marinate your skirt steak for an hour, grill, and fill your tacos. It’s that easy!

Pico de Gallo

It’s no secret Pico de Gallo is easy to make. It requires only six ingredients: ripe red tomatoes, white onion, jalapeño, cilantro, lime, and salt (and some decent knife skills). That’s it. Serve in a festive bowl with homemade tortilla chips (see recipe above).

Tres Leches Cake

Tres Leches Cake is the perfect light and airy dessert to make on Cinco de Mayo. This sponge cake recipe features (no surprise) three milks that make it sweet and delicious. *Pro-tip: be sure to beat your egg whites to stiff peaks and then fold them in gently to ensure a cake with lots of lift.

 

Dress the part.

Shake things up with festive dress. We’re all struggling to get out of sweatpants these days, so there’s never been a better time to search your closet for some fun Cinco de Mayo-ish clothes. Summer dresses, sombreros…maybe a poncho. All are perfect items to wear to your celebration.
