Cinco de Mayo, or May 5, is the date Mexico and the United States celebrate the Mexican Army’s victory over the French at the Battle of Puebla in 1862. Not to be confused with Mexico’s Independence Day, in the U.S. we celebrate with traditional and modern Mexican cuisine, margaritas, sombreros, mariachi music, and maybe even a piñata.
This year, get in the spirit and have a fiesta! One of these creative Cinco do Mayo snack recipes are sure to please a crowd of revelers.
Quesadilla grilled cheese
This recipe is stacked with cheesy goodness. Make it into a savory snack by cutting each the quesadilla-sandwich stack into slices and serving with guacamole and salsa! If this isn’t festive (and doesn’t scream Mexican-American pride!) we don’t know what does. Learn how to make it here.
This recipe is one of our favorites because it’s fresh, simple, and because it was developed by a cannabis chef, it’s infused with CBD. It’s a huge at parties and disappears quickly, so be sure to make an extra batch (or two)! Get the recipe here.
Bonus idea: Why not have your guac & wear it, too?!
This craft is GENIUS. Take your Cinco de Mayo celebration by making and eating from a chips & guac flower crown. You’ll be the life of the party, and you’ll always have chips on-hand. Learn how to make it here.
