Crowded bars. Well tequila. And no elbow room to properly enjoy your tacos. Does that sound no bueno to you? Us too! That’s why we are inviting you to #CelebrateAtSuCasa this Cinco de Mayo. You see, we think it’s simply better to celebrate at home with those you love and fresh-from-the-kitchen flavors. We’ve teamed up with a few of our favorites to bring to you festive, authentic recipes made for sharing with friends. Plus, we are giving you not one, not two, but THREE chances to win over $500 in prizes. And there just may be a few secret prizes up for grabs, too!


True, the U.S. celebrates Cinco de Mayo more than Mexico. But it’s a wonderful way to bring people together from all walks of life and to bond over the diversity of Mexican cuisine. Lucky for us, Cinco de Mayo falls on a Saturday this year. But that doesn’t mean you have to spend the whole day prepping in the kitchen. With the help of our Handmade Style tortillas and our Cocina Fresca Sauce Starters, you’ll be able to create an authentic, flavorful spread as fast as your crew will be able to bust open the piñata. Here are a few more party planning tips to help you fiesta the day away:

  • Simple decor: Keep things bright and colorful with floral arrangements made with pink, yellow, and orange blooms. Add succulents and a mini-cactus or two for an easy tablescape.
  • Crowd-pleasing drinks: Ask your guests to each bring their favorite Mexican beer (Corona, Pacifico, Dos Equis, Tecate, and Modelo are easy to find) or favorite bottle of tequila to share. Then put those bottles to good use with our Classic Margarita and Spicy Paloma recipes.
  • Plenty of flavorful food: From fresh-made guacamole to perfectly pickled onions, we promise it’s surprisingly easy to make authentic dishes that are made with simple, better-for-you ingredients. See all of our favorites here.
  • Respect the Mexican culture: This includes knowing Cinco de Mayo is NOT Mexican Independence Day. Rather, the 5th of May commemorates the Mexican Army’s surprising defeat of France in 1862.
