Happy Cinco de Mayo! I thought we could celebrate* with a fun Mexican dinner! My favorite part of these recipes is that they’re all so easy to make- for three people or thirty! Throw together some chips and salsa with these and you’ve got yourself a pretty rockin’ cocktail party. Try them and see…
*I am aware that Cinco de Mayo is intended to honor Mexican heritage, and Americans often get lost in a sea of tequila shots and Taco Bell as they “celebrate”. With this blog, I like to take any chance I can get to explore foods from around the world, so please don’t misinterpret this post as a bastardization of a culture!
Start (and middle and finish) your night with a big glass of White Lighting Sangria
Guacamole is amazing on corn chips, fresh veggies, and on a spoon..
Corn, Avocado, and Red Pepper Salad is the BEST. Try using it like a chunky salsa or taco-topper!
For the main event, make a big batch of Fish Tacos– full of lime and creamy sauce they’re the perfect light dinner. You can even make cocktail-sized versions by cutting tiny tortilla circles with bite sized pieces of fish!
