Churro Cheesecake Bars

Churro Cheesecake Bars. Cinco De Mayo!  In high school, my Spanish teacher threw the most wonderful Cinco De Mayo parties.  We celebrated Mexican heritage and learned about this unique American holiday that Latinos in California started in the  late 19th century.  We would all bring food to share and play music and games.  Do you celebrate Cinco De Mayo with your family?

This year I am keeping the food quick and simple.  I will be making oven baked fajitas and serving up these Churro Cheesecake Bars for dessert.  Here are a few of our family favorite Fiesta recipes. I hope this helps you plan your Cinco de Mayo celebration. There are so many great dishes to chose from:

White Chicken Enchiladas

Secret Recipe Taco Filling

Chicken And Green Chili Pasta

Oven Fried Mexican Chicken

Crispy Chicken Roll Ups and Creamy Avocado Ranch

Quesadilla Casserole

Chicken Enchilada Pasta

enjoy a night of Fiesta Fun!
