Cinco de Mayo - food ideas

Any day centered around Tequila, lime, and Mexican fare is a good day.  I have a few fun ideas from previous posts that I thought I would share since tomorrow is Cinco de Mayo! (Where did April go?!)
This cake was awesome. It embraces all the wonderful things I love: Tequila, sugar, lime and cake! (in that order!)
I don't use a recipe for mine, I just mix up avocado, lime juice, lots of cilantro, and salt and pepper; but I linked up one from Alton Brown.  I'll have to try it with tomatoes and onions soon.
Enchiladas  (beef or chicken)

and if you find yourself without taco seasoning....
just make your own!

And no Cinco de Mayo celebration would be complete without drinks....
Beer Margaritas (love these!)
(or you could go Chili's for their CoronaRita!)

Are you planning anything fun? What's on your menu?


  1. I am thinking I might get that cake made tomorrow. We'll see. Derby party will come mid afternoon. Bring on the floppy hats!

  2. It sounds and looks so yummy! Beautiful shots. Thanks so much for sharing.
    Hope to see you on my blog:)

  3. all of this looks so delish. enchiladas are probably my favorite food. especially the ones i make at home. and tequila is so tasty. i have some for once. every shot is 4 points. grrrrrr.

  4. OMG, I am going to have to check out the beer margarita recipe!!

    Thanks for all the great links - happy Friday!

  5. You have no idea how much you're killing me right now. I'll take everything. I guess not the booze though.

  6. I saw your mojito cake on pinterest- it looks just as good as the margarita one.
