Must-Have Recipes for Cinco de Mayo

Cal Giant | May 4, 2021

This Cinco de Mayo we’re celebrating with colorful dishes that are fiesta-ready! Whether you’re grilling fajitas or sipping margaritas, versatile fresh strawberries can elevate the bold flavors of any classic Mexican dish.

Strawberry Guacamole

Guacamole doesn’t have to just be avocado-green! Add a pop of color to your favorite table-side appetizer.

This Strawberry Guacamole starts with a base of creamy avocados and is topped with diced red onion, jalapeños, lime juice, and salt. Then, chopped cilantro and juicy strawberries are gently folded in for an irresistible scoop of flavor.

This beautiful dish can be served in an authentic molcajete with your favorite tortilla chips or spooned on top of shrimp tacos and burgers. This craveworthy combination is worth keeping around all year long! 

Strawberry Margarita

We love a good cerveza, but Cinco de Mayo is the ideal occasion for Strawberry Margaritas. Shake it up by combining tequila, orange liqueur, strawberries, and lime juice. The presentation of this delicious drink is up to you! For the rim, use salt or sugar, and garnish with limes, strawberries, or jalapeños!


For a non-alcoholic version that the whole family can enjoy, sub the tequila and orange liqueur for fresh orange juice.

Strawberry and Paprika Chicken Fajitas 

Show off your culinary skills for your Cinco de Mayo fiesta! These Strawberry and Paprika Chicken Fajitas demonstrate just how versatile California Giant berries are. Fresh strawberries perfectly balance the heat in the smoky paprika chicken for well-rounded flavor.
