Cinco de Mayo Recipe Roundup

I’ve never been so happy to see Wednesday! After a couple of long days covering presidential candidates making stops in Indiana and a long night of primary coverage, it feels amazing to be home relaxing a bit. I love election season, but it definitely takes its toll after a while. I can’t wait to go to the grocery store and cook a healthy dinner later tonight— I’ve been living on not-so-healthy convenience foods since Sunday and my body is not happy!

I’ll be putting some ingredients at the top of my grocery list to make one of our favorite Mexican-inspired recipes to for Cinco de Mayo tomorrow. I love spicy food, so I would gladly eat Mexican every day of the week. Tacos make an appearance in our house once or twice a week, but I think enchiladas have my heart. Here are a few of my favorite recipes if you’re looking for an excuse to throw a fiesta of your own tomorrow:
