Inspired by our very first APIARY Cinco de Mayo tablescape, we’ve been on the search for the best recipes for our celebration this year. We’re so excited to share with you what we’ve found: recipes that are equal parts easy, quick and delicious.
Scroll down to find everything from appetizers (hello, chips and dip!), main courses, a delectable dessert, and a tasty margarita recipe for your Cinco de Mayo celebration.
Your Complete Cinco de Mayo Menu
There’s nothing better than fresh, homemade salsa! Jessica from The Forked Spoon shares an easy and delicious way to bring that freshness into your own kitchen. Add a bag of your favorite tortilla chips to use this salsa as a dip, or incorporate it into a taco recipe. (Read on to find those!)
This guacamole recipe takes just five minutes to make and is so easy to put together! Healthy and delicious, this is definitely your go-to guacamole recipe for Cinco de Mayo, or any Taco Tuesday!
We couldn’t help ourselves! We had to include this second delicious salsa recipe option because you can’t go wrong with too many chip dips! Check out this recipe if you’ve wanted to give your salsa a little extra kick, as Sommer explains how to adjust the peppers to make it your ideal amount of spicy.
We couldn’t do a complete Cinco de Mayo menu without our very favorite chicken taco recipe! Make this easy, halfway-homemade recipe earlier in the day, then focus on whatever else you need to get done. You’ll have delicious chicken taco filling ready for you right when you need it for your celebration.
If you’re looking for a meat-free option, look no further than Tina’s Roasted Chickpea Tacos! Full of fiber and plant protein, these tacos are perfect for a vegetarian diet but will be loved by meat-lovers alike. Enjoy crispy chickpeas, creamy avocado mash, and crunchy bell peppers.
This traditional dessert is baked and then soaked in three different milks, making this cake super moist and delicious. It’s then topped with whipped cream frosting, making it impossible to resist!
We, of course, can’t say we have a complete Cinco de Mayo menu unless we include a margarita recipe, right?! Check out this fresh cocktail for an easy-to-make festive beverage that pairs perfectly with all that salsa and guacamole!
