Cinco de Mayo Recipes
While Cinco de Mayo commemorates Mexico’s surprise victory in the Battle of Puebla, today, it remains a wider celebration of Mexican heritage and culture. There are several opportunities for Michiganders to join in on the revelry. Races, folk dancing, musical performances and parades are springing up throughout the state this weekend.
But there’s no need to gas up the car: Bring the bash to your home with a healthy, mouth-watering spread inspired by classic Mexican dishes! It doesn’t take much for your Cinco treats to take the unhealthy route–piles of cheese, sour cream and processed meats can up the calorie count in a flash.
Cutting back on some fatty ingredients doesn’t mean you have to sacrifice flavor. Blow your party guests away with three of our all-time favorite Cinco de Mayo classics: Crunchy Taco Cups, Bell Pepper Nachos and a Walking Taco Salad.
