Cinco de Mayo Roundup!

Posted by in Holidays

Tasty Kitchen Blog: Cinco de Mayo Roundup! (Carne Asada Baja Street Tacos, submitted by TK member Bita of Honest & Tasty)

I think, by now, we’ve established the fact that we love Mexican food around here. Who doesn’t? It’s just so right. So obviously, we cannot let Cinco de Mayo pass without rounding up some of our members’ latest and greatest Mexican recipes. The only problem now, is waiting until next Tuesday to dive into all this glorious grub. And let’s face it, we probably won’t wait. Uno de Mayo is totally a thing, didn’t you hear? Whatever day you celebrate, we’ve got a recipe or two, or a hundred for you. Here we go!

Deciding what meat or other filling you want can be tough! So let’s not decide. We can slow-cook and grill and pan fry all at once if it means we get more filling options! Suddenly, a taco bar sounds just right. But even one of these recipes would make the whole meal!
