It's almost Cinco de Mayo and that means it's time for a fiesta!

We're celebrating the holiday the way we celebrate every holiday: with a huge spread of gorgeous, delicious food. Read on for the perfect, crowd-pleasing Cinco de Mayo menu. 

Cochinita Pibil (Slow Roasted Pork) Tacos 

A pork shoulder rubbed with spices, then cooked low and slow, yields a main dish that promises to thrill (vegetarians can swap in potatoes or squash and rub them in achiote paste). Get the crowd-pleasing taco recipe, pictured above, here.
