Cinco De Mayo Menu



I always look forward to Cinco De Mayo and an excuse to either go out for some yummy Mexican food or even better, cook some at home. Tacos have always been a go to meal at our house, but lately I have discovered how easy enchiladas are to prepare at home and love them in all their varieties. Today, I have put together a Cinco de Mayo menu, starting with a delicious low calorie and low carb margarita and ending with a fun margarita cake. All these recipes are easy to prepare and will help you create a festive Cinco de Mayo celebration right at home.


To start the celebration, these Skinny Citrus Margaritas are really the best. I love a good margarita, but usually they are filled with carbs and sugar from the margarita mix. These are light, refreshing and a perfect start to your Cinco De Mayo party.


Easy Chicken Enchiladas are made with green enchilada sauce and a generous amount of monterrey jack cheese and are a fun twist on the more traditional beef enchilada made with red sauce. Serve with some pinto beans with green chilies added and you have a delicious and festive main course.



Finally, this Skinnygirl Margarita Cake is so fun and the perfect ending to this holiday menu. The secret to its yummy flavor is the frosting - canned frosting with Skinnygirl Margarita mixed in, for extra flavor.

Have fun planning your own Cinco De Mayo menu at home.

Happy Wednesday!
