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