Cinco de Mayo Recipes

A few of my favorite Mexican flavored recipes for Cinco de Mayo:

First you could start off breakfast with some Chili Egg Casserole.

If you feel like soup there is always Mexican Meatball Soup.

Maybe throw in a salad with my Taco Salad.

If you want to have dinner simmering in the crock pot all day then try Crock Pot Chili Verde.

For a healthy, vegetarian dish try Nancy's Mexican Tortilla Pie.

And for dessert maybe bake up a batch of Cowboy Cookies.


  1. Oh they all sound wonderful. I would love a cowboy cookie, I am hungry for something sweet. lol Great suggestions. Hugs, Marty

  2. excellent, everything sounds so good!I'm not familiar with this holiday at all, but it sounds wonderful.I have to say we have never had a mexican restuarant here in this city, I suppose to far North, not a big enough city.I'm sure bigger cities in Canada must have.

  3. They all sound sooo good. Don't feel like cooking, can I just come over?
