Cinco de Mayo Menu Ideas – Part I


Whew! This week coming up is a busy one! The 135th annual Kentucky Derby is Saturday… and Tuesday is Cinco de Mayo. While Cinco de Mayo is a wonderful event… with everything happening in Mexico this year… it’s doubtful there will be many celebrations there.

I will continue to post menu ideas for a few days… some for family meals…. some for adults… and there is no reason why some of the “party foods” can’t be included in your menu.

Appetizers go well with a soup and a dessert… so don’t discount them if you’re not having a party.

Feel free to browse our “Mexican” Label for complete listing of the many recipes you might like to try. You can also go to our recipe index for a listing of all the recipes…

As always…. Enjoy!
