Dinner ideas for Cinco de Mayo
Cinco de Mayo is tomorrow–are you ready? If you’re still making your dinner plans, here are a few recipes from MKES and some I’ve dug up to get you cooking something spicy.
Salsas & such
This sauce takes time, but it’s worth the effort. Plus you can freeze some for later.
Hand-crafted tortillas are deceptively difficult to make, but the thicker, easier to flip sopes–so much easier!
Nothing authentic about ‘em, just an excuse to fuse really good bacon with some Mexican flavors.
So easy and a great way to use ground turkey.
Get the flavors of Chile Relleno without all the frying and mess (not that I mind frying…)
Usually chilaquiles is made with a green salsa (and as a breakfast food) but I like the idea of adding smoky chipotles.
Sweet and spicy pork tacos are my all-time favorite. This recipe comes from Mark Miller’s excellent Tacos book.
So soothing after a hearty meal packed with chiles.
Melt-in-your mouth, buttery cookies that are covered in powdered sugar.
Deep caramel-flavored custard-like goodness.
Fried dough smothered in cinnamon & sugar. Yum!
