    Thank you for posting this Cinco De Mayo recipe round up, Pam! As I scrolled through the recipes, I was reminded of how many of them I have tried and loved! My family loves Mexican/Southwest cuisine, and your blog is the first one I turn to when we are craving it. Have a great weekend!

  3. We love hot and spicy food so I will certainly be trying a few of these recipes. Thanks.Have a great weekend Diane

  4. Wow what a varied fantastic selection of Mexican food. If I was at a restaurant, I would have a terrible time figuring out what to have. But I have been craving fish tacos lately, so that would probably be the bingo in this line up.

  10. Great line up, and I’ll take a bite of each please. I have to admit that salad stopped me in my tracks. Beautiful. And same here, it’s pretty much a Cinco celebration year round in our house. Love the flavors for Mexican food.
