15 Quick & Easy Cinco de Mayo Recipes

Cinco de Mayo has been one of my favourite food holidays for quite a few years now. After all, who doesn’t love Mexican food? If you’re celebrating on May 5th then you’re going to need some delicious food to go along with your celebrations.

You may notice that lime, salsa and a lot of things Mexican food are kind of all over my recipe index and that’s probably because living in the Caribbean I tend to reach for similar ingredients quite often. Not only that, but these recipes tend to be pretty easy to make and are generally quick recipes – can you say perfect for parties?! I did a roundup of my favourite Jessica in the Kitchen Cinco de Mayo vegetarian recipes for you below and I’m including all things Mexican, Avocado, Salsa, Beans, Dulce de Leche…everything reminiscent of the day. Enjoy!
