What to Serve at a Cinco de Mayo Party

Cinco de Mayo Menu:

  • • Pimento Cheese Jalapeño Poppers
  • • Pimento Cheese Queso Olé
  • • Morey Margarita
  • • Mexican Chicken
  • • White Bean Chicken Chili

I, like the next person, will take any excuse to celebrate with great food... and Cinco de Mayo is no exception. The legacy of this small (but inspirational) victory against France in the Battle of Puebla lives on for centuries, particularly in the United States. Many Mexican Americans see this day as a significant opportunity to celebrate their shared heritage and many other Americans join in, even if just to enjoy the company of their loved ones and delicious food and drinks. 

I have rounded up a Cinco de Mayo menu to serve at your party, including appetizers, a main course, and drinks designed to be easy, delicious, and enjoyed by everyone.

Pimento Cheese Jalapeño Poppers – the easy appetizer that packs a punch. 

Who doesn’t like queso? Elevate this Cinco de Mayo appetizer with my Pimento Cheese Queso Olé recipe. Serve this with the Callie's Hot Little Biscuit new sea salt biscuit crackers!

 Spicy Jalapeno Margarita


I love my margaritas a little spicy and the jalapeño gives this one the perfect kick - spicy, fruity, classic, frozen Morey Margarita.

 Mexican Chicken

Main Course

White Bean Chicken Chili is a delicious staple that has many variations depending on what I have on hand, so change it up to fit what you have!

For the main course, try my Mexican chicken! Just grab our fiery pimento cheese and some Pico de Gallo and you'll have Mexican takeout made at home.
