Your Cinco de Mayo Menu: Planned

Cinco de Mayo is on its way, and it’s coming on an extra special day: Tuesday. Taco Tuesday. If this isn’t the perfect excuse to whip up some amazing food from south-of-the-border and shake up a margarita, we don’t know what is. 

Our recommendation: Pick a couple apps, a couple mains, and a couple margaritas to serve at a cozy gathering with people you enjoy. Extra points for taking the feast outside (because everything tastes better when eaten outdoors), and you can always divide up the cooking and have your fiesta potluck-style.

Bonus: All of these recipes are super-simple and pack a massive flavor punch for minimal work. With make-ahead components and shorter cook times, they’re perfect for weeknight cooking!
