Cinco De Mayo Recipe Roundup

It’s that time of year: Cinco de Mayo is just around the corner, and it’s time to kick off your summer entertaining. 

This year, make the most of your garden’s bounty with fun recipes that put fresh herbs in the spotlight. From tasty guac to the drinks that will have everyone dancing, check out some of our favorite Cinco de Mayo recipes. 


The margarita is often considered the go-to option for the occasion. And, lucky for you, we have several different recipes to suit a variety of palettes: 

Dirty Margarita 

Watermelon Basil Mezcal Margarita 

Cucumber Jalapeno Margarita

If you aren’t so hot on the marg, don’t worry. Instead, whip up a batch of spicy micheladas or blackberry ranch waters to get your tequila fix.  


Who doesn’t love guac?! Guacamole is a Cinco de Mayo must. For those who are looking for classic fare, our Fresh Guacamole recipe is a must. For those who aren’t so hot on cilantro (about 25% of the population!), this cilantro-free option is a game-changer. 

And, of course, you can’t have guac without salsa. Both our herb-infused salsa verde and strawberry salsa options make great use of your garden-fresh herbs.

If you would rather not go to dip route, try making some sheet pan nachos. This recipe calls for fresh crab and ripe avocados–what’s not to love?


For the main event, think quick, easy, and on theme. These cauliflower tacos are a weeknight favorite, and they’ll bring some much-welcomed vegetables into the mix. You can also try these delicious enchiladas verde–you’ll thank yourself when enjoying the leftovers the next day. 

And don’t forget dessert! Now’s the time to test your hand at making authentic churros, complete with a rich and delectable dipping chocolate on the side

How do you plan to celebrate Cinco de Mayo?
