Celebrating: Cinco de Mayo


As a Spanish major and Mexican food lover, I feel obligated to tell you about how I would spend Cinco de Mayo (if I wasn’t traveling today). First, I would make this guacamole recipe from Pinterest (broken link) for snacking during dinner prep (definitely with extra jalapeño and minus sour cream). For dinner, tacos, of course. Personally, I’m a fan of fish tacos so I would sauté some tilapia in a little coconut oil with salt and pepper, warm some corn tortillas, and chop some cilantro and onion. I like it spicy, so jalepeños and tomatillo salsa are a must. To finish, I would make the following margarita recipe that my friend, Pierce, swears is the best she’s ever had: 1.5 oz. tequila, 0.5 oz. triple sec, juice of 1 orange, 1/2 lemon, & 2 limes, and 1 oz simple syrup poured over ice. ¡Chinchín y feliz Cinco de Mayo!

  1. I’ve never heard of putting sour cream or garlic in guacamole, but I guess there’s a first for everything!

    1. I hadn’t either! I say skip the sour cream, but I would be willing to try the garlic. Have a great day, Abby!

  2. These are definitely recipes I need to try. I have been searching for a simple and delicious margarita recipe, so I’ll have to put this one to the test. I have never been a huge guac-lover (I am more of a salsa gal) but I made a recipe recently with grilled corned and roasted red peppers (recipe link below) that was absolutely delicious. I can’t wait to try yours!
