A Cinco de Mayo Fiesta



I just love to celebrate Cinco de Mayo with colorful food and drinks. You won't find me out in a crowded and loud restaurant or bar, but right at home in my kitchen. It is such an easy and fun holiday to prepare food for and to get into the spirit of the day. Below you will find a salad, a main dish, a dessert and a cocktail; all bursting with fun and Mexican flavor. And, to make these recipes even better, all are lighter versions of what you would order if you were out on the town.

A healthy Cinco de Mayo fiesta is right at your fingertips with these simple recipes.


Mexican Chopped Salad


Oven Baked Chicken Fajitas


Skinnygirl Margarita Cake


Sparkling Raspberry Margarita (Skinny Version)


Have a wonderful weekend!
