Cinco de Mayo lands on a Taco Tuesday this year.
Cinco de Mayo is just a few days away. Unfortunately, none of us will be able to spend it at a bar or a restaurant. We might not even be able to find all the ingredients at the store for a celebration at home. But not to worry: Taco Bell has you covered. The Mexican fast-food giant has a created a special feast to go called the At Home Taco Bar. For $25, you can get a taco bar in a box that will feed up to six people.
The At Home Taco Bar includes beef filling, shredded lettuce, shredded cheese, diced tomatoes, refried beans, sour cream, flour tortillas, and taco shells. It also comes with nacho chips, nacho cheese sauce, and your selection of hot sauce packets. Taco Bell will be posting recipes on its blog that you can use with your taco bar, including the one for its famous Double-Decker Taco.

"Our food has always been a catalyst of bringing people together, and we're finding new ways to do this from a safe distance until we can all be together again," said Melissa Friebe, Senior Vice President of Brand Marketing and Consumer Insights at Taco Bell. "No matter the meal they create, we're excited to give fans a new at-home Taco Bell experience.”
Taco Bell will also be creating festive cocktails and cocktail recipes for Cinco de Mayo that will be available on the blog as well.
You can really spice up your party with Taco Bell tableware, sauce packet balloons, and photo booth props, all available at tacobelltacoshop.com.
