Eat Mexican Food for Dinner 

You can’t celebrate Cinco de Mayo without eating a Mexican dinner, whether it’s homemade or out at your favorite Mexican restaurant. Tacos are such an easy dinner to make that they have become a staple in many families’ homes on Tuesday, hence Taco Tuesday! We also love this recipe for beef enchiladas. Going out for Mexican food is an even easier option where you can celebrate without the fuss of cooking and can easily get your favorite frozen margarita without the mess. Plus, you can wear one of your favorite fiesta dresses like the Cleobella Morina Gingham Ankle Dress or the Gretchen Scott Viviers Maxi Dress.

Make Churros

Want to celebrate with a dessert but running low on time? We love this super simple churro recipe using Pillsbury Crescent Rolls. Lay them out and top half with melted butter and cinnamon sugar. Then, cover the cinnamon sugar with the other halves of crescent rolls.  Using a pizza cutter, cut each section into 5 or 6 strips, twist them together and then place them on a baking sheet. Bake at 325 degrees until golden brown, about 8-10 minutes. Finally, cover with another layer of butter and cinnamon sugar and enjoy! 

Host a Taco Bar Fiesta

Hosting friends and family for a Taco Bar Fiesta is the perfect way to celebrate Cinco de Mayo. Chips, salsa and queso are a necessity, so make sure to include these appetizers along with your choice of meat, tortillas, lettuce, tomatoes, cheese and sour cream. You could offer a variety of proteins like chicken, beef or some type of fish like salmon. Homemade guacamole is the best and we love this recipe! Display each item in separate bowls so your guests can pick and choose what they’d like on their individual tacos!
