Cinco de Mayo is one of those holidays when people enjoy tasty food and festive drinks, but mainly the drinks. Last year, I went out to for a night of drinks with some coworkers, which was fun and needed. This year, I think my sister and I are going to stay in and have our own little Cinco de Mayo Girl’s Night In. After much consideration, I think I’ve come with the perfect healthy Cinco de Mayo menu for home.
For an appetizer, I’m going to make this 7 layer bean dip, which is a little healthier than most bean dips. I will probably pair it with some blur corn chips of Beanitos, which are so good. Still debating on if I will add salsa to the top. Knowing me, I probably will.
For the entree, as much as I would love to make some cheesy enchiladas, the bean dip has enough cheese for the night. So, I’m going to make a come classic chicken and beef fajitas, similar to this chicken fajita recipe. Grilled lean meats and veggies for the instant, healthy win. Instead of flour tortillas, I’m going to use a spinach tortillas or no tortillas. More veggies, less carbs.
Can any Cinco de Mayo menu NOT include margaritas? I think not. A classic margarita is my go-to liquored drink of choice. However, I want to try something a little different, such as this pineapple jalapeno margarita. Sounds like the perfect mix of sweet and heat, which I love.
Probably going to be plenty of leftovers to nosh on over the weekend, which makes me happy.
