Cinco de Mayo is coming up again, which means it’s almost time to start the fiesta! I love celebrating any holiday as fun as this one, and this year I’m going to host a big party for my friends and family. My favorite part about throwing a party is getting to plan the menu. For this one I’ve decided to make a healthy Tex-Mex menu because between the margaritas and mojitos there will be plenty of calories to go around. I really love coming up with a theme, planning the different dishes and then seeing everything come together. There’s something about making a full spread I know everyone will enjoy that makes me happy.
Tex-Mex recipes are some of my favorite ones to make because they’re full of fresh flavors and color. Since Cinco de Mayo has become a huge celebration in the United States over the past few decades with food, festivals and fun, what better way to do so than with a get together of your own?
