7 Animal-Based Recipes for Cinco de Mayo

With these animal-based recipes for Cinco de Mayo, you can make a variation of the festive foods you know and love – chips, tacos, and yes, even ‘bean’ dip – using whole, nutrient-dense foods and without sacrificing taste or pleasure.

Cinco de Mayo was always one of my favorite holidays to celebrate as it was an excuse to stuff my face with burritos, nachos, and lots of sour cream and cheese. (Read more about my Mexican food obsession here.)

In this post, you will find 7 animal-based recipes to help you celebrate Cinco de Mayo, but without all of the crap ingredients like seed oils and processed sugar. All of these meat-based recipes (and the rest of the recipes on this website) use animal-based ingredients, like beef, pork, chicken, uncured meats, organ meats, animal fats, some low toxicity fruits and vegetables, and (optional) zero carb condiments, herbs, and spices.
