Twenty-Five Healthy Mexican Food Dinners for Cinco de Mayo

Twenty-Five Ideas for Healthy Mexican Food for Your Cinco de Mayo Dinner!

Twenty-Give Healthy Mexican Food Dinner Recipes for Cinco de Mayo found on

I've been having fun this week celebrating the Nine Year Anniversary of Kalyn's Kitchen!  I've also been attending The Snap Conference in Salt Lake the last few days, so not much cooking has been going on around here.  But recently I was updating the recipe archives page for Easter and Cinco de Mayo Recipes and realized that even though I've never made a big deal of Cinco de Mayo on the blog, I do have a lot of favorite Mexican Food recipes that are perfect for the holiday.  So just to get you in the mood for Cinco de Mayo, or to scratch that Mexican food itch, here are Twenty-Five Healthy Mexican Food Dinners for Cinco de Mayo.  (I promise I won't tell if you decide to make one of them right away; enjoy!)

  1. Everything looks so good! Thanks for sharing :)

    I want to try the low-carb one first ;)

  2. Happy Anniversary..............hard to believe it's been that many years Kalyn. Living in Arizona it is almost a sin if one does not celebrate Cinco de Mayo. Next to Christmas it is my favorite holiday.
    I must pin this post for my friends over on Pinterest. Some of these are already in my file!!

  3. Lambie, hope you enjoy!

    Thanks Barb. Glad you like it!

  4. I know it's a typo and should be Chili, but got quite a good chuckle out of the name of #6, "Spicy Green Child Mexican Casserole ..."

  5. Karen, that's a good one; too bad all my typos are not that amusing! Thanks for telling me so I could fix it.

  6. Happy Anniversary!

    Thanks for posting such a wide variety of Cinco de Mayo. I have been following a gluten free, dairy free, corn free, egg free recently and appreciate that you have recipes that meet these restrictions. (Of course the other recipes are very tempting! :) ) Can't wait to try a few!

  7. Thanks Amy, so glad there are recipes that will work for you.

  8. Kalyn, NINE years! Wow! I don't think I even knew about blogs back then. This is a tempting bunch of dishes!

  9. Thanks Jean! It's been a fun and eventful nine years for sure.

  10. Looking yummo! Thanks a bunch.

  11. Tammi, my pleasure. Glad you like the ideas.
