Hola mi amgios! Happy Cinco de Mayo…or what I like to call, “Mexican FEASTival Day!”
I LOVE Mexican food! Burritos, quesadillas, empanadas, rubbertireadas…you name it! Just sprinkle it with garlic, add a little salsa, sit it in front of me and watch it disappear! I swear I have been dreaming of Mexican for dinner ALL day!
Since I was a little low on pantry items and a LOT low on time before I would chew my own arm off (remember what I said about working out in the evening), I threw together a quick Mexican themed salad! I sautéed strips of bell pepper, onion, and portobello mushrooms in a little olive oil and dashed them with chili powder, pepper, and garrrrrrlic!
And well, we certainly can’t celebrate Cinco de Mayo without a little guac, right?
Just slice up a whole wheat tortilla, pop it under broil, flip when brown!
Watch them close! They only take a few minutes and they burn fast!
Classic Chunky Guacamole:
- 1 ripe medium-sized avocado
- juice of 1/2 a lime
- S&P to taste
- 1/2 medium-sized tomato, chopped
- 1/4 medium-sized onion, diced
2. Add lime juice, garlic, and S&P and stir to combine
It doesn’t get any easier than that folks! It amazes me that people actually buy the pre-made stuff! Have you ever tried it? Blech!
I swear I get more of a rush of endorphins from a spoonful of guac than I do from ANY chocolate! There…I said it…I’m sorry I’m not sorry!
Not in the mood for a salad?
Try my Mexican Socca Pizza
or a bowl of Southwestern Chicken & Black Bean Soup!
Howabout a side of some Smoky Chipotle Guacamole?
Or maybe a little breakfast for dinner with these Santa Fe Oats!
Did you celebrate Cinco de Mayo today? What Mexican dish did you feast on?
