From taco deliveries to beverages to even some salsa dancing, there are many ways to celebrate Cinco de Mayo at home. You might want to continue the tradition every year.

This year, Cinco de Mayo at home is the way to celebrate. With the annual celebration falling on Taco Tuesday, this year’s celebration might be even more festive. From the food to beverages, the whole day can be filled with eating and drinking. With many people still social distancing at home, the work day might get a little shorter.

Here’s a few suggestions from the FoodSided team.

Salsa Verde Guacamole from Tostitos

While you might start the day with some avocado toast, this new Tostitos recipe could be a twist on that other avocado dish. The Salsa Verde Guacamole only requires four ingredients. It is simple yet the flavors are bold. Whether eaten with some Tostitos or used to top a taco, this guacamole recipe might be your favorite.

Also, remember to tune into Mario Lopez’s Instagram account at 7 p.m. EST to Salsa for Cinco. The event is a fundraiser for UnidosUS.

Moe’s Southwest Grill

Whether you a craving a bowl, tacos or just some queso, Moe’s Southwest Grill has you covered. Although you can go back and watch 8 hours of queso, it might be more fun to eat some queso. There is free delivery on purchases of $10 or more. The code is available online.

Also, comedian Aaron Chewning will be hosting a virtual party from 6-7 p.m. Viewers will have a chance to prizes.
