15 Dishes To Get Your Cinco de Mayo Fiesta On!

Some people’s favorite holidays include Halloween, Thanksgiving, Christmas or Hanukkah, but we think there’s a sleeper holiday that’s just as fun a celebration as any other…Cinco de Mayo! Celebrating a Mexican victory against French forces in Puebla, in 1862, this holiday calls back to a time when Mexican troops banded together and achieved the (seemingly) impossible, so it’s a wonderful reminder of what can be accomplished in the face of adversity.

Along with that powerful reminder, the celebration these days is pretty focused on Mexico’s culinary prowess, i.e. wonderfully delicious Mexican and Mexican-inspired dishes. We’ve rounded up 15 of our favorite recipes so that you can ring in the day, making memories with friends and loved ones, with some amazing flavor and spice. Get the fiesta started and enjoy!
