Mexican food and beer has a very special place in my heart. Since Cinco de Mayo is right around the corner, I thought I'd share some of my favorite Cinco de Mayo recipes from other bloggers!

I have my fair share of Cinco de Mayo recipes on this blog, like Mexican Corn Casserole, Slow Cooker Pork Pozole, Pico de Gallo with Avocado, and these Crispy Shrimp Tacos which are one of my most shared recipes!

Oh, and my husband's favorite Sopa de Lima. Yep, I think that's what we'll make this year!
