Ceviche is a staple for Cinco de Mayo food. One of the best things about it is you can make it with different ingredients. Note that the amount you make will depend on how many people you plan to serve. Be sure everything is fresh and cleansed properly. One way to make it is to simply use:

·         Shrimp or Scallops

·         Lime

·         Bell peppers

·         Tomatoes

·         Green onions

·         Olive oil

·         Fresh cilantro

It would not be a Cinco de Mayo celebration if you did not have tacos as an option to eat. Again, how much you make is totally up to you. Tacos are easy to make and you will only need a few ingredients:

·         Corn tortillas

·         Beef or Chicken

·         Cheese (topping)

·         Sour Cream (topping)

·         Salsa (topping)

 

Guacamole is definitely worth making at home instead of buying it. Yes, purchasing it is much easier, but making it is so much tastier! And of course making guacamole is really easy and an absolute must for Cinco de Mayo food. You will need:

·         Avocados

·         Lime

·         Chopped Tomatoes

·         Chopped Red onions

·         Chile (if you want to add spice)

·         Salt
