Cinco de Mayo falls on Friday. Here are some of our favorite snacks and other bites from the Recipe Finder to help you celebrate accordingly.

Start with a refreshing Jicama, Apple and Chayote Salad With Pepita-Avocado Dressing (pictured above) or Crab, Radish and Cucumber Salad. The recipes — no-cook, both! — come from cookbook author Pati Jinich.

Of course, chips and dip are always a good idea — try Cooked Salsa Verde or Guacamole Tradicional.

For a hearty side or meatless main, try Spicy Chipotle Eggplant With Black Beans. You'll have leftover salsa negra, which can be used as a kicky dip, too.

Pozole Verde With Clams adds a nice punch of color while keeping things on the lighter side.

If you're feeling crafty, make this DIY Mexican Chorizo. Use it in tacos, burritos or scattered over nachos.

Tired of the news? Our recipe for Newspaper Chilaquiles isn't guaranteed to take your mind off current events, but we can promise you'll see a whole new side of newsprint.

Wash it all down with a Mezcal Margarita. Or combine dessert and drinks in one with these tequila-laced Paloma Pops.
