Y’all, welcome to the Cinco de Mayo edition of the Dinner Divas Weekly Meal Plan! Are you ready for some Cinco de Mayo recipes?
Mexican and Mexican-inspired foods are the Topic At Hand for this Cinco de Mayo Meal Plan, and we have rounded up lots of deliciousness you won’t want to miss!
Homemade Flour Tortillas
The quintessential Mexican flatbread is the tortilla. Corn tortillas are probably the more traditional, but man it is hard to beat a soft, steamy flour tortilla. Wrap up everything from carnitas to ham and cheese!
Chings, Junior Style #ProgressiveEats: Florida-Mex Memories from the Space Coast
These Chings are maybe my favorite Mexican-ish meal ever! Moist and spicy chicken tinga wrapped up in flour tortillas and then deep fried. Cut them in bite-sized pieces and top them with melted cheese. Chings work as an appetizer or as a main. So good and a specialty of the house at Taco City in Cocoa Beach, FL!
Instant Pot Macaroni and Cheese
Our one deviation from Cinco de Mayo recipes is this wonderful Instant Pot mac and cheese. And Lord, do I love a good mac and cheese recipe. Keep it Mexican inspired by adding some RoTel, or just enjoy the creamy goodness as is.
Cheese Stuffed Queso Fundido Chicken | Pook's Pantry Recipe Blog
Queso fundido means "melted cheese," and Pook's Pantry is dishing it up in the most delicious way: onions and peppers and melty cheese all stuffed into chicken breasts! Yes, please!
Chicken Burrito Bowls
Eat these delicious Mexican-inspired burrito bowls as is, or throw caution to the wind and make burritos using your homemade tortillas. Both recipes are from Comfortably Domestic, so you know they're delicious and will feed a houseful of hungry people!
Old-Fashioned Chocolate Chess Pie
Yes, I know this chocolate chess pie is a Southern classic, but you can absolutely make it work for Cinco de Mayo by adding a touch of cinnamon to the filling. You can even get dangerous and add some heat with either some cayenne or chipotle powder--just go light on it. A little bit goes a long way in a dessert!
Margarita Cupcakes with Salted Tequila Frosting
The perfect marriage of tequila and lime in cupcake form. These margarita cupcakes are a fitting end to any celebration and are a perfect recipe to bake up for Cinco de Mayo.
How to Make The Best Top Shelf Margarita From Scratch
I'm giving you a bonus recipe this week. You already have margarita cupcakes, so make sure you make some Top Shelf Margaritas to go with them, Silver tequila and Grand Marnier mix with homemade sour mix in this fantastic margarita recipe. Enjoy, and Happy Cinco de Mayo!
