I love Cinco De Mayo simply because it's one of those great reason's to eat Mexican food and drink margarita's which is defiantly on the top of my all time favorite things list! 

In case you need an easy sweet treat for dessert these Cinnamon Sugar Tortillas are a favorite in our household. These are my version of Bunuelos or better know as Elephant Ears at the fair.

The kids beg for me to make these every time we have Homemade Soft Flour Tortillas.

When I'm feeling fancy we even drizzle them with a little strawberry puree and whip cream.

Here's all my favorite Cinco De Mayo Recipes in case you need a few more ideas.
