Taco bout a Party
A party isn’t complete without festive banners and party supplies. Luckily, Cinco de Mayo has some of the cutest, and gives us more of a reason to decorate with all things cactus (even if we are from Texas). Check out these banners, straws, and party plates and cups from Etsy below!

Setting up a taco bar in your home is one way your guests can feel comfortable and invited. It also gives free range for making your own tacos (taking some of the prep work off of you:) and having endless toppings is a must! Different options for meat is necessary when preparing for several guests in your home. Try a buffalo chicken taco option to spice things up a bit and change it up from the original taco – which we all love, still….

Dips on dips
Dips are great for appetizers and to use as toppings for tacos. This bean dip is one that everyone loves on their taco or can eat by itself as well .. it’s that good. Corn, black beans, cilantro, tomatoes, avocados and whatever else you want to throw into the mix makes up this delicious and savory dip. You can also never go wrong with a simple queso and salsa to add to the table with some fun gourmet chips.

No need to worry if you have a few vegetarians in the mix, these loaded veggie tacos are the perfect, easy go-to! You can even use the bean dip as a filler for this as well. Top with a little lime juice and enjoy a flavorful bite.
