Weekly Kitchen Insights - Recipes and Trends from

Mint juleps and margaritas were HUGE last week! Of course, that’s because of the Kentucky Derby and Cinco de Mayo. That totally cool Mexican-inspired holiday even had its own holiday page on Allrecipes. (Love the "how to" video there for making fish tacos! Take a look! It's just what I needed to try making these.) May 5th festivities also made a chicken enchilada recipe the week’s top new recipe. And let’s hear it for chili! There were 6 Championship Chili Recipes in Allrecipes’ What’s Cooking newsletter so they got extra attention. Lots of cooks must be updating their recipe boxes!

Pantry Raid Chicken Enchilada Casserole was the top new recipe last week. (It needs a photo. Hint, hint!)

Margaritas, Debdoozie’s Blue Ribbon Chili, and Mint Juleps were the week’s three most popular recipes based on week-over-week changes in page views

Debdoozie’s Blue Ribbon Chili, Boilermaker Tailgate Chili and Flatlander Chili were the top three recipes based on week-over-week change in both prints and saves
