Tomorrow is Cinco De Mayo-just that thought makes me crave Mexican food. Of course, it doesn’t take much for me to crave Mexican food-it’s one of my favorites. In my younger days, I used to make my Cinco plans way in advance with careful contemplation of-who was going to have the cheapest margarita prices, the best food specials, the hippest bands, and where could I get in early to hold a table for all my friends. I guess I wised up or just got older to realize the best place to celebrate Cinco De Mayo is home-no crowds. I either make a batch of margaritas or have a few Mexican beers with lime. My biggest decision to make for Cinco nowadays is what to cook. But one thing is for sure, I always have my Mexican Fiesta or Cantina Mariachi CD’s playing. Got to set the party mood!
Here is a recap of a few of my creations to help satisfy any Mexican food cravings.

Remember to put your TO COOK IS TO CREATE thinking cap on! Didn’t see anything that tempted your taste buds? You can still put your spin on any of your favorite Mexican dishes with leftovers and homemade Taco Seasoning or Enchilada Sauce.
