Well, last year we managed a roundup of 16 Cinco de Mayo recipes in honor of Cinco de Mayo 2016, so the logical thing to do would have been to post 17 this year (which we certainly could have done!). But then, one must ask oneself, when does the madness stop? What happens in 2132? Surely there are 132 Cinco de Mayo recipes, but do you really want to scroll through that post (no disrespect, Buzzfeed…). So, to maintain our sanity and yours, without further ado, here are ten great recipe ideas for your Cinco de Mayo this year! (Do be sure to read last year’s post if you don’t know what Cinco de Mayo really is celebrating!)
