21 Tapas for Cinco de Mayo

It’s almost Cinco de Mayo!

I think everybody loves this day because it’s a fantastic reason to eat fun Mexican food, have great margaritas, and just enjoy all that Mexican cuisine offers.

Who doesn’t love tacos?

Carnitas | Dixie Chik Cooks

I’ve always had an affinity for Mexican/Spanish cuisine, but tapas has to be my favorite.

Tapas literally means enjoying/splitting appetizers, having cocktails in lieu of ordering a three-course meal. It’s fun, relaxed, and everyone gets to taste what everyone else is having! In some Central American countries, this is also known as bocadillos.

Just in time for the upcoming Cinco de Mayo, I’ve found you several delicious, savory dishes to enjoy this particularly fun holiday.

My Sous Vide Carnitas happens to be one of them (above), and these kick ass Cheesy Jalapeno Flautas.
