Mexican and Mexican inspired recipes from tortillas, salsa, and queso to succulent barbacoa, authentic enchilada sauce, and Mexican chocolate cake!

While it’s a significant date in Mexican history, Cinco de Mayo is not widely celebrated in Mexico as a national holiday.

Whether you’re looking to host a fiesta with friends and family, or just looking for some delicious Mexican food, our collection of recipes will inspire you. So grab some tortillas, chop up some fresh cilantro, and get ready to enjoy the bold vibrant flavors of Mexican cuisine!
