15 Party Snacks for Cinco de Mayo

April 24, 2016
15 Cinco de Mayo Party Snacks for your epic Cinco de Mayo fiesta! These recipes are for a fun Mexican-themed gathering--you can never have too many snacks!

If you could throw an epic Cinco de Mayo party what would it look like?

Mine would be FULL of color, bright fuchsia, deep turquoise, marigold orange. I would wear the most beautiful Otomi dress and have Vincente Fernandez blasting on the stereo…no scratch that; I’d have Vincente Fernandez LIVE in my flower-ladened backyard!

Of course there would be a massive bar with every tequila under the sun. At least 20 different margaritas on offer and table after beautifully-set table of glorious snacks.

Oh, I can throw a off-the-hook party in my head. In reality however, Cinco de Mayo will be a more mellow affair, with an icy margarita, a few friends, and Vincente Fernandez…..on the stereo.

We can have some pretty great food though. Here’s 15 ideas that you can rock at your super buena fiesta!
