What Is Cinco de Mayo?

Cinco de Mayo was first celebrated after the Mexican army beat the French in the 1800s. It stayed a small regional holiday until the 1960s, when activists encouraged a day to celebrate Mexican culture with parties, parades, and delicious food here in the United States.

This year, we are celebrating Cinco de Mayo and Mexican culture with a homemade feast. And as always, we like to make our dishes simple and faster with an Instant Pot so we can spend more time with family and friends.

What Do You Eat on Cinco de Mayo?

We recommend making Mexican favorites like fresh salsas, tacos, tostadas, and more. The Instant Pot recipes below are a combination of quick Tex-Mex favorites and our spin on more traditional Mexican dishes.
