Foodie Friday: Fabulous Fiesta Worthy Recipes

Foodie Friday couldn't come fast enough for me. Cinco De Mayo happens in a week, and I'm having VIP guests! So this recipe roundup is personal, but I know you will find something that spices up your own celebration. Mix a margarita and think guacamole like you've never had before, Churro Milkshakes with Dulce de Leche & much more!

Homemade Skinny Margaritas
To me, the "skinny" way is the only way that I will ever have a margarita again. So fresh and light. In this recipe, the tequila is the star and not some sugary mix with chemicals. These are perfect!

Blackened Salmon Tacos
I am making these this week. The recipe promises some smoky char, tangy vinegar, and creamy brightness that is all wrapped up in a blue corn tortilla. What a beautiful bite!

Homemade Tamales Three Ways
1) Green Chile with Corn and Queso Fresco Cheese, 2) Shredded Sweet Pork, and 3) Shredded Chicken with Adobo Sauce. Sounds like a party to me!

Glazed Churros
The quintessential Mexican dessert is updated with a flavorful glaze. It's a fun spin on the classic. Get the kids to help!
Better Homes and Garden 

Guaca Mary Cocktail
I just loved the name of this creative cocktail. As the name hints, it is made with avocados, your choice of tequila or vodka, coconut milk and all kinds of veggies. Consider it a boozy smoothie. That's one way to get your greens!

Steak Fajitas with Chimichurri and Cucumber Salsa
Have you tried Chimichurri yet? It's one of my new favorite things. It's a bit like pesto without the cheese. I use much less olive oil to make it lighter. This recipe just has fiesta written all over it. 
Half Baked Harvest 

Caramelized Pineapple, Bacon And Goat Cheese Guacamole
Just when I thought guac couldn't get any better......

Roasted Corn Skillet Queso Fundido
This recipe is guaranteed to be completely different than any queso you have ever tasted. 

Coco Margaritas
Okay, these are not as guilt free as a skinny margarita, but I have to say that I want one, NOW!
How Sweet Eats  

Butternut Squash Black Bean Enchiladas
This recipe is said to be simple, healthy, hearty, flavorful, smoky, spicy and downright delicious!

Margarita Bars
Your favorite lemon bars just got an upgrade for Cinco De Mayo. Yes, tequila is involved!

Strawberry Mojito
Okay so, a Mojito is traditionally a Cuban cocktail. Since Cuba and Mexico are both in the Latin America family, I have included this delicious drink in the mix. Cheers!
White On Rice Couple 

Grapefruit Granité with Mangoes and White Rum Mojito 
Looking for a pretty but light dessert after your fiesta? This is it. It also plays double duty as an after dinner drink!

Slow Roasted Pork Carnitas
I have never had carnitas before. The pork gets slow cooked in coca cola for two to three hours. I can imagine what the sugar in the cola does for flavor and caramelization. Oh my!
Half Baked Harvest 

Beer Battered Fish Tacos with Slaw and Chipotle Aioli
Beer battered anything is really delicious. Add honey and mayo and I am one happy girl. This recipe is worth going off "the program" for one night.
The Every Girl  

Crock Pot Black Bean Soup
{ Gluten Free & Vegetarian }
One of my favorite things, and I haven't had it in years. With the convenience of the slow cooker, the smokiness from the chipotle pepper, combined with the cumin and garlic, this is one easy recipe.
Joyful Healthy Eats 

 Grilled Romaine, Prawn, Avocado and Nectarine Salad with Jalapeno Honey Vinaigrette 
This dish gets fresh pops of flavor from nectarines and avocado. It is almost too beautiful to eat!

Taco Soup {Gluten Free}
This sounds like a bowl of healthy comfort. Those good looking chips? They are Trader Joe's and are organic with quinoa and chia seeds in them.

Loaded Nacho Grilled Cheese
Brought back by special request by Mr. Shop This. Cinco De Mayo or not, this recipe is a keeper.

Mango Salsa
A super easy recipe to make. A fruit salsa comes in handy for more than Mexican food, too. I love it with seafood. This is a must try!
Gimme Some Oven  

Churro Milkshakes with Dulce de Leche
Churros dipped in a milkshake? Yes! This recipe literally has me drooling. Oh, and it is an adult beverage, as it calls for rum or tequila. Ole!
Half Baked Harvest  

Spiced Crab Tacos
"Chef Michael Psilakis’s bright, fresh crab tacos incorporate traditional Latin ingredients and a hit of Asian chile sauce."
Food and Wine 

Mexican Dessert Crepes
{ Gluten Free }
Cinnamon sugar and caramelized apples fill this dinner party worthy dessert. It's all topped off with a Mexican chocolate drizzle. Perfect!
Healthy Recipe Ectasy 

Spicy Shrimp Tacos
These terrific tacos are topped with a sour cream and cilantro sauce which balances the heat of the shrimp.
