Spice Up Your Cinco de Mayo Celebration in a Flash With These 4 Los Cabos-Style Recipes

The best place to celebrate Cinco de Mayo is, of course, at one of Mexico’s unbeatable beach resorts with a feast, a fiesta, and fireworks adding bright colors to the starry sky. Unfortunately, everyone can’t jet to paradise for the festivities, so your amigos at the ocean-front resort Hacienda Encantada on "Millionaire's Row" in Los Cabos decided to share a taste of their hospitality with some easy recipes from their team of culinary masters. It’s the next best thing to the resort’s en suite guacamole chef service (which should totally be a thing everywhere). Nothing beats fresh guac at your doorstep—except maybe a dinner at sunset on the clifftop patio of the hotel’s Las Marias or Los Riscos mesquite grill, both overlooking the Sea of Cortez.

These recipes will do nicely though, especially since all four of them can be prepared in less than 60 minutes, leaving you plenty of time to focus on the most important aspect of any proper Cinco de Mayo celebration: margaritas.
