I have 10, yep 10 hot and spicy Cinco de Mayo recipes to share with you. You are gonna want to try each and every one-that is a promise!!
Okay, so now that your mouth is watering, (okay-mine is!) let’s get going:
I love Mexican food of all kinds. From beans, chips, salsa, to shrimp, to nachos, tacos, and even dessert.
EASY Jalapeno Poppers
Fresh Homemade Salsa
Creamy Green Chili Enchilada Soup
Scattered Thoughts of a Crafty Mom
Spicy Shrimp Soup/Caldo de camaron
Coconut Tres Leches Cake
And lastly a scrumptious recipe that is a family favorite anytime of year:
The EASIEST Chicken Nachos
3 chicken breasts, frozen or thawed
1 large jar salsa (preferably HOT-it gives the chicken so much more flavor)
1/2 cup to 3/4 cup sour cream
cheese, homemade salsa, olives, tomatoes, lettuce,
cilantro, jalapenos, guacamole, lime or lemon
In the crock pot add:
1 whole jar salsa
Cook on low for 4 1/2 hours
Shred chicken and add the 1/2 to 3/4 cup sour cream (add to your own taste)
That’s it! You are ready to serve your scrumptious Chicken Nachos.
We LOVE lime squeezed over our nachos Although lemon is pretty good, too.
This is great for a crowd and ideal for a “Nacho Bar”
I make this pretty much once every few weeks. It also is ideal for tacos on Taco Tuesday and taquitos. PLUS, it freezes really well.
Okay, so now you should be set with 10 Hot and Spicy Cinco de Mayo recipes, right? They are all stress-free, just like Cinco de Mayo should be.
I just LOVE sharing recipes that you can keep in your file for years to come. Each one of these are tasty and perfect all year long.
