Cinco de Mayo Cheese Board

Happy almost-Cinco de Mayo! This is always one of my favorite holidays – I love the bright colors, the margaritas, and especially the food. This Cinco de Mayo cheese board is a twist on the standard favorite. I take a couple of Mexican cheeses (manchego and queso fresco) and surround them with salsas, fruits and vegetables, and warm tortillas.

I think most people celebrated over the weekend, but if you need a quick appetizer for tomorrow, this is an easy one to set out and the possibilities are endless. You can add cooked chorizo (I used a Spanish chorizo here), tortilla chips, even more salsas, a bean dip, queso fundido – just use your imagination! I love having a spread of appetizers as a meal, and between the cheeses, salsas, and tortillas, this is definitely one that can serve double duty as both.

Here are some other Mexican-inspired dishes if you’re looking for some other ideas for tomorrow:

  1. You are the queen of mexican food!! Of course you would come up with the coolest Cinco de Mayo appetizer ever. I really love this idea! I’m bummed that I didn’t use Cinco de Mayo as an excuse to make this but it would be awesome for a summer BBQ too, I think.

    1. Hahah thanks!! It’s really my favorite of all time. Yes – great for a spread for a summer BBQ – the possibilities are endless! 🙂
