Cinco de Mayo Recipes
You already know I love taco Tuesday, but I probably eat Mexican food more than any other type of food. So I rounded up a bunch of my favorite Mexican-inspired recipes, made them a touch healthier (without sacrificing taste duh!) to share with you!
Hi I'm Bri and I'm a TACO-aholic. Seriously tacos are my freaking JAM. I could eat them for breakfast, lunch and dinner, and I'm pretty sure I have at least once. #sorrynotsorry
Lets start with beverages, because you have to have something to wash down all the chips & guac right?!
Kombucha adds a pleasant tang to margaritas and is a lower sugar option than traditional sour mix! I love mine with a splash of sparkling water but you can leave it out. Almost any flavor of Booch will do, but I'm a big fan of citrus-y flavors.
This strawberry agua fresca is SO refreshing on a hot day and the little ones in your life will love it! You can sub any fresh fruit (or frozen fruit) you have on hand!
Not to brag but my guacamole recipe is THE BEST and it's ridiculously simple. I make it ALL the time. PS if you're not veg/vegan add some cooked chopped bacon, it's next level delicious!
Yes you can buy this from the store, but I promise you nothing beats fresh, homemade pico!
Don't knock it til you try it, this dairy free, nut free queso has the same spicy, creamy flavor and won't weigh you down!
Ok so Nacho fries may not be the most authentic food but hot damn they are SO good. If you love fries and love nachos this is a match made in heaven.
NOW TO THE GOOD PART TACOS
Just like the ones from your favorite taco truck or taqueria.
What do you get when you combine leftover tortilla chips, salsa, leftover taco meat if you have it, scrambled eggs and cheese?? CHILAQUILES! This might just be the best hangover cure, iykyk!
And for the grand finale, fried ice cream & fried bananas. Both are easier than you think, and although I haven't tried it the bananas would prob be amazing with the fried ice cream.
If you make any of these recipes, share them on IG or FB and tag me @brianaottinger! I love seeing your creations! Hope you all have a happy and safe Cinco de Mayo!
