We know you don't need an excuse to have a Taco Tuesday party, or any excuse, really, to rustle up your favorite south of the border foods. But it is midweek (and there is work tomorrow), so why pore over recipe after recipe when time could be better spent consuming your favorite cocktail or stuffing your face with guacamole?
Luckily, some of your favorite Cinco de Mayo foods can be made by instinct, without any recipes to clog your brainspace. So don your favorite sombrero and turn up the mariachi music—your Cinco de Mayo party just got a whole lot easier.
