I fell in love with this picture of Blackened Fish Tacos with Avocado-Cilantro Sauce and couldn’t wait to make this!  It would be perfect for dinner Thursday.

I crave this Mexican Street Corn almost every day!  The spicy cheesiness of this corn is perfect for almost any celebration or barbecue!

Don’t these look so perfect to serve for Cinco de Mayo?  Slow Cooker Tacos Al Pastor is easy to make and feels special for the night!

Can you imagine eating this beautiful appetizer?  Mexican Shrimp Cocktail is where it is at!

The kitchen is definitely my favorite place in any home. I love cooking but I also love how it brings people together. Although we lived in different cities growing up, I consider Sugar City, Idaho to be my hometown. Now, my husband and I live in Meridian, Idaho with our three not-so-little kids. My life is filled with good food, friends, and family—and it’s even better when I can find a great deal!

    Gosh, I sure would love to try the Mexican Street Corn. Here, when I eat corn, it is usually buttered corn served with steak or on stick, it was simply… boiled. Now the Mexican Street Corn looks so yummy with the other ingredients thrown in.

    Yummy, Mexican food. I love to eat sea food and all the fresh herbs that comes with Mexican food. Never though I could do that myself; but here is the best part; your recipe makes it happen again. I have to do this coming weekend. Mexican cuisine, here I come! Gracias Cheery Kitchen! <3

    Really curious. How does Cinco de Mayo started and why associated with food? And speaking of food, they all look so yummy and festive.

    I love Mexican food. I wonder what’s the purpose of cinco de mayo? What are the Mexicans celebrating about? Anyway, I would love to try the Blackened Fish Tacos with Avocado-Cilantro Sauce and the Mexican Street Corn.

      We are always celebrating something! Cinco de Mayo commemorates the triumph of the Mexican army at the Battle of Puebla on May 5, 1862. This victory occurred over 50 years after Mexico’s Independence Day, which is celebrated on September 16. It was a big deal for little Mexico who took on big France, and now it’s a great reason to enjoy some good Mexican food!!!
