Cinco de Mayo at Home (3 Easy Recipes)

We decided very last minute…. like this morning… to celebrate Cinco de Mayo tonight at home with the kids.

We typically have soccer tonight, but we’ve had so much rain this week that the fields are too wet.

So, I spent the morning experimenting with some super fun, super simple recipes for tonight. If you’re looking for a quick and easy way to say Cinco de Drinko, these recipes are for you!

Will you celebrate the holiday today? If so, what is your favorite Mexican inspired dish or drink?
