I love any reason to celebrate with a certain food. I like to eat Pie on Pi Day (3/14), and I consider Cinco de Mayo to be my Tex-Mex food day.
Granted, I had no idea there was a Shrimp Scampi Day (April 29th) or a Men Make Dinner Day (November 6). But there are some of those I could get behind.
I may not celebrate Cinco de Mayo the right way, and I may eat my Tex-Mex style food way more often than once a year or even once a week, but I do know that the food below is absolutely delicious.
You should consider making one of them Monday if not this weekend. The dips are heavenly, the enchiladas are spicy and delicious, the tacos are a cinch to make, the fajitas have the absolute best flavor, and the dessert is oh so amazing!
Butternut Squash and Black Bean Enchiladas are made each and every time I can get my hands on some butternut squash. Plus, it's gluten free, vegetarian, and all around yummy!
I love this gluten free Healthy Vegetarian Fajita Dip. It tastes amazing, and can be snacked on all weekend long.
Oh the deliciousness of this Quick and Healthy Spinach Black Bean Dip. It's easy to make, everyone loves it, gluten free, and absolutely fabulous. I know you'll love it too!
These Fast and Easy Vegetarian Fajitas are pretty much the best fajitas ever. No restaurant or any other recipe has ever been able to compete with it. You make it ahead, let it marinate, and then quickly cook it up. Delicious!
The Simple Sopapilla Bars are delicious warm or cold. Eat it for breakfast, bring it for a potluck, and enjoy it for dessert. So easy to make and so loved by everyone.
Healthy, flavorful, throw it in the crock-pot, and enjoy a delicious meal of tacos, nachos, salad, dip, or more. These Slow-Cooker/Crock-Pot Chicken Tacos are fabulous!
Let me just say, this Restaurant Style White Queso Dip calls my name almost every other week. It tastes absolutely amazing, never clumps, and well, it's restaurant style so you can wear your pjs while enjoying this amazing dip at home!
I think the only difficulty you are going to have on Cinco de Mayo is trying to decide which of these amazing foods should you make.
Though, you could always celebrate all weekend or all week long and enjoy ALL of these meals!
Now that is a good idea! Weekly meal planning is done.
Happy Cinco de Mayo, and happy yummy food eating!
