You can’t go wrong with the apps and snacks angle for pleasing a crowd, especially if you plan on making Cinco de Mayo a reason to share festive fiesta foods. We rounded up all of our favorites. And since Cinco de Mayo as we celebrate it in America is more of a fanciful concoction (it’s not widely observed in Mexico), we added some less-than-authentic Americanized foods as well. Seven-layer bean dip, anyone?

If you’d like to use Cinco de Mayo as a prompt for exploring the diverse foods and regional dishes of Mexico, you’ll find those recipes here, too. As you make them, savor the flavors and traditions we love thanks to our neighbors south of the border, who are so much of our culture today.
