1. Guacamole- must.have.period. 

2. Pollo Pibil- a hearty taco dish- a real crowd pleaser. 

3. Sopes! Perfect appetizer and you can fill them with ANYTHING. Great for all diet types.

4. Enchiladas Mineras- Aby's are DELICIOUS. They are beautiful and taste great- not too spicy and just the right amount of seasoning.

5. Tamarind Margaritas- sweet, spicy and loaded with tequila- salud! 

6. Cucumber and mint agua fresca- fresh, clean and a great alternative to alcoholic drinks.

7. Spicy Mexican Chocolate Coffee Milkshakes- a refreshing end to hot, spicy food.

8. Tres Leches Cake- this just happens to be the BEST recipe ever. If you make it- can I come over?

9. Enjoy that Tres Leches cake with some Mexican Coffee (cafe de olla)- not to mention it helps the day after cinco de mayo!
