…cue the mariachis and start juicing those limes! In honor of Cinco de Mayo, Carole’s asked us to list our ten favorite Mexican foods. I’ve been to Mexico a few times and I know my “Mexican” favorites are really more “American”… but for today, that’s what I’m celebrating – olé!
1. margaritas – not frozen, no salt and a little bit of extra citrus (Katie mixed up this batch and it was … perfect!)2. guacamole – avocados, garlic, lime juice, jalapeno and tomato. best accompanied by3. cucumber and carrots (and jicama but I usually don’t have that sitting in my vegetable drawer); and 4. chips. thin and still warm from the deep fryer is best…but I’ll settle ;-)if I make it past the drinks course (I’ve definitely made a few meals off those four things), then I’d want tacos:5. grilled fish with accompanying 6. just-made corn tortillas, 7. mango salsa and 8. cabbage slawand if I were still hungry… 9. a dark chocolate, and 10. a dark coffee.
I can only hope this little guy inherits my taste for spicy and fun food – for sure it’s in his genes!Click here to join the Ten on Tuesday fun.
