Cinco de Mayo is one of the best foodie holidays, because there’s no better excuse (not that we need one) to make Mexican food galore. We’re talkin’ salsa, quesadillas, empanadas… the list goes on! We’ve taken matters into our own hands this year to bring you some apple inspired favorites that have cinco-star reviews. These three easy recipes are guaranteed to bring a little crunch and sweetness to your Cinco de Mayo celebration.
Get your fiesta started with a tasty, sweet, and not to mention healthy appetizer. Our Apple Salsa with Homemade Cinnamon Chips will keep your guests satisfied until the first round of margaritas come around.
What’s a Cinco de Mayo celebration without quesadillas? We’ve got a crunchy apple version with cheese and bacon that will have your guests praising your culinary skills. Don’t worry, we won’t tell them these Bacon, Apple and Cheddar Quesadillas only took you 20 minutes to prepare.
A Cinco de Mayo celebration wouldn’t be complete without a decadent dessert recipe. We recommend ending your fiesta with these fun and festive Apple Cheesecake Empanadas. This handheld dessert is the perfect way to serve a crowd and end your night on a sweet note.
Happy Cinco de Mayo, friends! We hope you have a fun and safe celebration full of crunchy, apple-inspired Mexican classics.
