Do you know the secret to the perfect Cinco De Mayo party?  Great food, great drinks, and great company!   We’ve got the great food and drinks covered for you with these Cinco De Mayo Celebration recipes from our Chapter Two Collective food blogger creators.  Grab some friends and get the party started!  

 

Party Tips

 

  • Let the food be your centerpiece. Red salsa, green guacamole, and yellow corn tortillas add a pop of color.
  • Pinatas aren’t just for kids.  Fill with spicy Mexican chili, tamarind, or watermelon Mexican lollipops.
  • Take the party outside for a spring evening fiesta under the stars.  
  • Use food container cans or clay pots for simple flower centerpieces.
  • Not everyone likes spicy so make a few mild Cinco De Mayo recipes to please everyone. 
  • Set out a salsa bar with bowls of mix-ins such as black beans, fruit, jalapenos, cilantro, etc.  
  • Don’t forget dessert.  Everyone loves a sweet treat at the end of a meal, even if it is just a bite. 
  • Have 2-3 non-alcoholic beverage choices available.  Mexican Coke and aqua fresca are refreshing choices.
