Cinco de Mayo is coming in a few days, and I admit, it is one of my favorite food holidays. I love turkey, I love filet, lasagna but well-done tacos and fajitas have a place near the top of my list.
We all deserve some great Mexican food. Here are my personal favorite recipes, all with easy-to-follow step-by-step photo instructions.
Cinco de Mayo is a food holiday if you didn't know. The food screams with wonderful flavor and everyday life—all for only a little work and cost. Plus, unlike Thanksgiving, no need to spend all day cooking.
Cinco de Mayo was a victory in battle over the French and is not the Mexican Independence Day which is September 16th. I'm sure our French friends will join us on the food side of the celebration and wish our Mexican neighbors a happy holiday.
This year I'm picking my personal favorites, not by page views, not by comments. Just what I would cook for us.
🇲🇽My Favorite Mexican Recipe
You can call me pedestrian, but this is my personal favorite. I end up doing a 2-3 pound batch at least once per month. An rarely do we freeze any. It is all consumed by two of us in 3-4 days.
Once you try this flavor-packed taco meat, you will never buy one of the dry packs of "mix" again. Please give it a try.

Let's all join together in wishing our neighbor to the south Happy Cinco de Mayo (AKA Victory Over the French) Day. I'm sure the French would agree at least on the food side.
