9 Fresh & Delicious Mexican Inspired Recipes

So confession here…we don’t celebrate Cinco de Mayo.  There I said it.  Do you?  Are there parties and margaritas involved?  Can I come over?  😉

We may not actually celebrate the day, but we do really love Mexican food.  I think it’s my favourite food actually – everything about it – it’s all so fresh, flavourful and deeeelicious!  And as coincidence would have it, I seem to have quite a few Mexican inspired recipes here on the ol’ blog, that would be great for Cinco de Mayo, you know, if we even marked the day.  Maybe this year we will!  😉


So here they are: 9 Fresh & Delicious Mexican Inspired Recipes

  1. Turkey Tortilla Bake
  2. Mexican Grilled Shrimp with Avocado Butter
  3. Fresh Tomato & Mango Salsa
  4. Mexican Flank Steak Tacos
  5. Homemade Taco Seasoning
  6. Mexican Hot Chocolate Cookies
  7. Cilantro, Garlic & Red Pepper Guacamole
  8. Jicama Lime Snack Sticks
  9. Mexican Chicken Stew


Happy Cinco de Mayo to you!  Oh, and if you’re partying this weekend, tell me what’s on the menu…I can live vicariously through you all.  😉


Have a delicious day!

    Of course, we celebrate Cinco de Mayo here in Texas! Great reason for guac, chips and a margarita. 🙂

    Thanks for the recipes!
