cinco de mayo round up


It’s Cinco de Mayo and I thought we all could use a little bit of last minute dinner inspiration. In case you’re like me and didn’t plan ahead but would love to partake in a little festive eating (and drinking) tonight. I’ve come across some pretty gorgeous and delectable recipes over the past couple of weeks, so I thought I would share this little Cinco de Mayo round up of some great, last minute recipe ideas. You’re gonna love them!


mexican layer dip_jelly toast_Emily Caruso (5 of 9)Seven Layer Dip – I posted this recipe last year on Food Fanatic and it’s a favorite in our house (scroll down for the full recipe)

Veggie Enchiladas with Corn, Black Beans and Kale – This is a great meatless option (especially for #MeatlessMondays)

Cilantro Lime Shrimp from Skinny Taste – these are fabulous and take only minutes to make.

Black Bean Tacos from Chez Us – Another great meatless option!


Classic Margarita by Jelly Toast

Classic Margarita + Rum-arita – If you’re not a huge tequila fan, you’ll love the rum twist on a classic margarita.

Prickly Pear Margarita from Pink Patisserie – that color! Oh my goodness…

Mango Margarita with Chile Salt and Lime from Foodie Crush – I love the idea of sweet and hot together!

Perfect Blood Orange Margarita from Chez Us – If you’re having a hard time finding limes in the market, you have to try these margaritas from Chez Us.

Fresh Paloma Cocktail from Boulder Locavore – Grapefruit and tequila? Yes, please!


Pumpkin Churros with Chocolate Coffee Sauce by Jelly Toast

Pumpkin Churros with Chocolate Coffee Sauce – just because!

Blood Orange Margarita Granita from Tartelette – Simple and perfect

Pina Colada Tres Leches Cake from Completely Delicious – Ok, this might take a bit longer to make, but it would be worth the wait!

Happy Cinco de Mayo!

    Thanks for the Cinco de Mayo love! Liking this seven layer dip. It is okay to have dip for dinner, right?
