It’s all about fresh ingredients, lots of cheese, and a good amount of spice for this Cinco de Mayo menu. We chose two different types of tacos – classic Tacos Al Pastor recipe and a healthier Fish Tacos option. For sides, we went with fresh Cilantro Lime Rice and some mouthwatering Beer Battered Bean and Cheese Stuffed Poblano Chiles.
You’ll need some traditional salsas, like a classic Pico de Gallo and Salsa Verde, and it wouldn’t be a true fiesta without nachos and guac, so we found you an amazing Sriracha Guacamole recipe and Pulled Pork Nachos that will leave you thanking Dios. Melted cheese with tequila? Si, por favor! This Queso Fundido With Poblano Chorizo and Tequila recipe has it all. Finally, a great Margarita recipe to wash it all down! Happy Cinco!
