Cinco de Mayo Food Ideas

May is practically around the corner.  Some years, we get into a festive spirit and make Mexican themed dishes for Cinco de Mayo.  I’m not sure if that will be in our plans this year while traveling.  However, I had fun finding a few recipes to try sometime soon.  We’re studying Spanish right now with a Fiesta theme and can have a belated Cinco de Mayo celebration as part of our homeschooling.


Enjoy the round up of Cinco de Mayo food ideas which includes 2 of my own.  And, happy celebrating!
