Crock Pot recipes are key for busy weeknights. Loving this 3 ingredient Crock Pot Chicken taco recipe from Two Healthy Kitchens.


Another great slow cooker recipe comes from Home Made Interest. Slow Cooker Beef Taquitos. Don’t buy these in the frozen section when you can make them hat home so easily.

No Cinco de Mayo celebration is complete without this delicious avocado dip. It’s made with mashed avocados, lime juice, onion, cilantro, and a touch of salt.

Every good Cinco De Mayo meal must start with some Southwestern Guacamole.  Love this one from Gator Mommy Reviews.


Don’t forget the Salsa, a true companion to any Mexican Recipe. Salsa is a versatile dip that can be made in many different ways, but the basic recipe includes tomatoes, onion, jalapeno, cilantro, and lime juice.

Have you tried Pineapple, blueberry or even Peach salsa before?
