Cinco de Mayo Recipe Roundup

We hope to be celebrating independence from COVID-19 soon, but we can still make Cinco de Mayo fun while spending most of our time at home right now. We are sharing our favorite Mexican-inspired recipes from the archives for you to enjoy with your loved ones this year.

Easy Main Dish Ideas:

Whether you serve simple quesadillas or smothered enchiladas, there are a lot of delicious dishes to serve to spice things up on Cinco de Mayo.

Easy sides, desserts, and drinks:

Whether you keep things simple with a side of chips and Calavo Fiesta Guacamole (#1060), or go all out with Copy Cat Cafe Rio sides, there are a few great additions for your fiesta:

stone fruit lemonade

Treat your guests to a simple lemonade with flavors of peach, cherry, and apricot from our Monin Stone Fruit Syrup.

Stone Fruit Lemonade



  1. Mix ingredients together in a pitcher. Add ice cubes, if desired.
  2. Store in the fridge until ready to serve.
Chicken Flautas

Enjoy shredded chicken, flavored with our Yummy Guacamole Seasoning (#2588), in a crispy tortilla with your choice of toppings.

Chicken Flautas


For the flautas:


  1. First, add all the chicken ingredients to a large pot and cover with water. Bring to a boil, then simmer for 20 minutes or until the chicken is cooked through. Shred then set aside.
  2. Next, fill the tortillas with the shredded chicken and roll up tightly. Secure with a toothpick, then repeat with the remaining tortillas.
  3. Meanwhile, heat about 2 inches of oil in a pan.
  4. Carefully fry the flautas for about 2-4 minutes, flipping halfway through. Set onto a baking sheet (#4020) lined with paper towels to drain the excess oil.
  5. Serve warm with desired toppings. Enjoy!
