Every year Kevin and I say we should do this, and then May 5th sneaks up on us and of course we haven’t made any party plans.

With all the current events going on we aren’t exactly planning and social events in the near future, so it is definitely no surprise that yet again, there are no party hosting plans for us.

It’s a bummer because I always love a plate of tacos, enchiladas, guacamole, and more! And it is always fun to host a party – I can only imagine how much fun hosting a Cinco de Mayo Party would be. 

So, like I do every year, I’m currently vowing that NEXT YEAR WILL BE DIFFERENT!

But, while we can’t have a party with friends this year, we can still make a fun Mexican themed dinner menu to enjoy at home with the kids!

These Cinco de Mayo Recipes are not only some of my very favorite recipes that I’ve posted here on Good Life Eats, but they also happen to be some of the most popular recipes on the blog.

So, if (like me) you’re trying to make the best of the situation and still do something fun with your family – or maybe you’re just looking for some menu ideas for dinner – I’ve got plenty of great Cinco de Mayo recipe ideas for you here.
