Scribbled Underline

Happy Cinco de Mayo! Today, let's explore a wide array of options to make your celebration even more engaging. From food to drinks, and decorations to activities, I have got you covered with ideas that fit your budget and spread. So, come along and let's make this Cinco de Mayo a fiesta to remember!

Shrimp Ceviche 

This is an incredibly versatile and tasty recipe. All you need is cooked shrimp, red onion, cucumber, tomatoes, cilantro, avo, and most importantly, mango.

Mexican Shrimp Guacamole Bites

To make these, you can simply top some round tortilla chips with homemade (or store-bought) guac, pan-fried shrimp, and queso fresco. Again, this is an incredibly versatile snack that can be changed to your liking.

10-Minute Pineapple Salsa

This pineapple salsa makes quite the unique taco bar appetizer and, as most, pairs well with rich, hearty, and meaty tacos.

Easy Taco Salad Cups

This recipe focuses on a more healthy Mexican appetizer. You can make the cups from corn tortilla shells and stuff them with a lean ground beef filling.

Pico De Gallo

This is a type of fresh salsa made with cilantro, red onions, jalapeños, garlic, and tomatoes. This accompaniment goes great with almost any Mexican or Tex-Mex appetizers but is perfect with plain salted tortilla chips as well.

Cucumber Tomato Salad 

For more refreshing vegetarian Mexican appetizers, you can try something a little more basic like a cucumber and tomato salad.
