It is that time of year again, Cinco de Mayo and I wanted to share with you some of favorite mexican recipes here on Detours in Life. These are sure to be a hit for your Cinco de Mayo celebration, whether it is small or large! I hope you enjoy.

 Restaurant Style Salsa

This salsa is so easy to make and will make you think you are dining out in a Mexican restaurant. You can vary the level of heat you add to it to make it as mild or as hot as you like!

Enchiladas with Red Sauce

Enchiladas can be made a tad healthier by using turkey instead of beef and turkey packs more protein than chicken. These are super easy to make and you can use canned enchilada sauce or try out some easy homemade enchilada sauce.

Turkey Chimis

Another healthy mexican style dish – Baked Turkey Chimichangas. These taste amazing and are extremely filling. Using turkey and baking them makes them a healthier alternative to the fried version.

Quick Chicken Quesadillas

We LOVE quesadillas in this family. They are one of our “go to” meals when we want something extremely fast for dinner and can be customized to each person’s taste. These quick chicken quesadillas will be a hit for your Cinco de Mayo.

Burrito Bowls

Burrito Bowls are another completely customizable meal for the family. Each person can tailor their bowl to their particular taste – make it mild or kick it up a bit with some jalepenos! These would be great for a crowd by setting up a “burrito bar”.
