Cinco De Mayo is Tomorrow so Let's Celebrate!

May 5th is Cinco de Mayo and here are a few ideas if you plan of celebrating with friends and family this weekend to get a jump start on the festivities.  Serve your food buffet style and let everyone help themselves.  

Check out the bottom of the page for an easy Corona Margarita sure to be a hit at your party!  

Easy Mexican salad you can throw together in no time.  Chopped Romaine lettuce, can of drained and rinsed black beans and corn, peeled and diced avocado, crushed tortilla chips, grape tomatoes, and an offering of an easy dressing made of 1/4 cup fresh lime juice, 1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil, 2 tablespoons honey, pinch of fresh garlic (if desired) and tablespoons fresh minced cilantro.  Easy method is place all the dressing ingredients in a small jar, put on the lid, shake and serve. 
I like to serve steak fajitas, and always have an offering of flour tortillas and/or corn.  The corn is preferred and used if you are on a Gluten-Free restricted diet. 

Serve up your favorite salsa, Pico de Gallo, sour cream, taco sauce, shredded lettuce and grated cheese, black beans, and guacamole.

Don't forget to serve cut up limes!

~Corona Margarita~
Dampen the rim of the margarita glass and dip it into salt.  Pour the following ingredients into a blender and blend well.  Serve it with a lime wedge garnish.
6 ounces white or blanco tequila
12 ounce Corona
6 ounces frozen limeade concentrate
Ice cubes

Enjoy & Happy Weekend.
