by at .  Updated at . Comments

If you're like me and the closest thing to Cinco de Mayo food in your kitchen is a bag of Spicy Nacho Doritos, you're going to want to check this out.

We here at The Hollywood Gossip have compiled a list of Cinco de Mayo recipes for your dining pleasure. 

From enchiladas to sopapillas - and yes, even the delicious margarita - here are 11 Cinco de Mayo recipes sure to please your party guests or your family.

Chips and Salsa
Start the meal off right with a bowl of chips and salsa. Make your own from scratch or reach for the Pace and Tostitos. We won't tell.

While you might start your meal with drinks, followed by chips and salsa (because how can you not), the real star of the night will be your main course.

We suggest Shredded Beef Tacos, which utilize your slow cooker to make a tender, flavorful base for your meal.

Bonus! The shredded beef can also be used to make enchiladas for a variation on the main event.

For Happy Hour, try a spin on the classic margarita: the Mango Margarita is a frosty twist sure to please your guests. Cap off the evening with some tasty baked sopapillas. 

Mmm, mmm, good!

Here are 13 Mexican-American stars who might be dining with you. Or at the same time as you, at least. (That's sort of the same thing, right? Right.)

Viva la Mexico!

Selena Gomez
Selena was born in Grand Prairie, Texas to a Mexican-American father. She's named after Tejano pop star Selena.
