Cinco de Mayo Recipe Round-up!

8 Cinco de Mayo recipes from Karista's Kitchen

There is nothing more delicious than a blog post filled with Mexican and South American inspired recipes.  The rich, bold and spicy flavors remind me summer is on the horizon and it makes this chef delirious with anticipation.  Outdoor grilling, fresh local summer produce, casual dining, flip flops or barefoot; it positively makes me giddy just thinking about it.

Cinco de Mayo is Monday, May 5th and to celebrate,  I’ve got a fabulous line up of festive recipes.   So sit back, relax, fire up that grill, shake up a tasty cocktail and enjoy the deliciousness of the season.

Delicious Wishes and Loads of Love,

    I’ve come to look forward to Cinco de Mayo posts every year, despite the fact that we don’t celebrate it here in Australia. Such a wealth of delicious Mexican-inspired food all over the blogosphere! Yummo. This is a great round up Karista! x

      Thank you Laura. Mexican food is a staple in our house. It’s typically so easy to prepare and uses lots of fresh ingredients that are easily sourced, especially during the warmer months. Enjoy!!

    Delicious round-up. We all love Mexican in this household. It’s also nice to see some not so heavy on the cheese recipes. Happy CDM!

I’ve got a luncheon on Friday and I have to work in the morning and was trying to think of a recipe I could make ahead for an appetizer.. and here you are with the perfect answer. I’m going to make your Smoked Salmon Wonton Tacos:)
