Kick off Cinco de Mayo in True Tex-Mex Style!


We can’t resist fiery spices and Cinco de Mayo is the perfect day to celebrate a culture full of flavour!

Tacos, quesadillas, burritos, fajitas – whatever your preference, you can celebrate with these meals on Cinco de Mayo. Originally a holiday celebrating the Mexican army’s 1862 defeat of France at the Battle of Puebla, Cinco de Mayo has transformed into a day of cultural celebration.

So get into the Tex-Mex spirit with these festive dishes and celebrate with your own fiesta – nothing says Cinco de Mayo like mouthwatering food and drinks on the patio!

Kick off your celebration with classic sangria, a quick and easy way to impress any guests. The sweet taste of honey mixed with cranberry grape juice is the perfect partner for bold Mexican-inspired tastes.

Fiery and fragrant flavours are essential in Mexican dishes, and these pork tacos in chipotle sauce don’t disappoint. The smoky heat of chipotle will tickle your taste buds and a garnish of crisp lettuce spritzed with lime juice creates a distinctive sweet and spicy sensation that you’ll devour.  Serve with corn and black bean salad for an authentic Tex-Mex experience.

If it’s a twist on a classic you’re after, look no further than these asparagus and mushroom quesadillas. McCormick Gourmet cumin seeds and garlic salt with Monterey Jack cheese complement the earthy taste of mushrooms and asparagus to transform a Mexican favourite into a brag-worthy appetizer.

If rolling up a delicious tortilla is what you prefer to bite into, just tear, stir and enjoy the authentic flavours of Club House fajitas with roasted chili skillet sauce. This dish requires only the addition of chicken and a few vegetables, so your taste buds will be celebrating in less than 30 minutes!

To us, there’s almost no better way to kick off May than with a celebration that brings on  flavour and  spice for the season
