How to delight my guests with a brave, new twist on guacamole?
Want an awesome Cinco De Mayo drink for both people who do and don’t drink alcohol?
Today I’m coming at you with my favourite Cinco De Mayo recipes. Trust me, the perfect guacamole or Margarita can save the day. You know it! 🤣Read on.
So, what’s the best enchilada sauce? Your mother-in-law's of course! You know the mole she sends you in an overnight Fedex box from Mexico along with 3 dozens of handmade tortillas?
My mother in law actually does this! That’s the dream, right?
But what if you don't have time to cook from scratch - or can’t afford to pay big bucks for an overnight fedex shipment.
That’s when you settle for store bought. But here’s how to do it right.
Here’s The Food Guy breaking down the best canned enchilada sauces on the market, he knows his stuff.
If you've tried any of these, let me know your favorites!
Or if you want to make your own, here's a yummy recipe:
And what's Cinco De Mayo without guacamole?
I'm traditional. I make mine in a molcajete by grinding the avocados, adding in chopped serrano chile peppers - then spritzing a squeeze of lime juice with a pinch of salt. Easy and delicious!
But for those of you looking to switch things up, I recommend you check out this recipe with cumin and jalapeños - adding flavor and spice. Yum!
And last but not least ...Margaritas! Oh yes, now we're talking!
Again, I like to keep it pretty classic. My favorite Margarita is 1800 Tequila Reserva Silver with fresh lime juice and Cointreau - served over ice with or without salt.
But I recently tried this super yummy Chili Lime Mango Margarita recipe. Just make sure to use fresh mangos and you’re golden.
I love this recipe. You can easily make a festive drink for non-drinkers or kiddos. Nobody feels left out

I wish you and your family a Feliz Cinco de Mayo!
