Growing up we didn’t eat a whole lot of mexican food. Occasionally we’d have nachos for dinner or tacos at a friends house… but nothing too spicy and definitely nothing all that exciting! Since moving to Texas, a whole new world of food has been laid at my feet! I’m in LOVE with Mexican food and eat it every chance I get 🙂 While I am still learning about that part of the culture and heritage of Texas, I have quickly learned that just about any reason to enjoy a Mexican Fiesta is a great reason!

With Cinco de Mayo just days away, I wanted to share with you some FABULOUS recipes, dishes, cocktails, appetizers and desserts you can share at your next Mexican Fiesta!
