Hola Compadres! Happy Cinco de Mayo! If you’re in the mood for Mexican food tonight but don’t feel like a 45-minute wait at your local cantina for barely Taco Bell-quality food, we’ve compiled some Mischief Mexican recipes for you. Just click on the titles below to link to the recipes…
These are super-easy, not to mention delicious! Matthew shows you how to make both fish and steak tacos. Bueno!
Mexican Flank Steak Salad
This brief little recipe is from my “Cilantro Neglect: Don’t Let it Happen to You” post. You can easily swap the flank steak for chicken, pork chops, or fish fillets…whatever protein you have on hand.
Cilantro-Lime Chicken Salad
If you’re in the mood for a little lady lunch, Mexican-style, here’s chicken salad you can serve atop lettuce.
I don’t expect anyone to actually take the time to make this on Cinco de Mayo, not when there’s so much tequila to be disposed of. Really I just wanted to impress you with the number of Mexican recipes we have. LOL. Seriously…this salt is delicious. I used all of mine—it’s time to make more!
Braised Chipotle Pork Deliciousness
Matthew and I have both tackled this dish, and it’s a total winner. Since it requires a crock pot, the cook time is a committment. However, you can always set it in the morning, go have Happy Hour margaritas and chips at a restaurant, then come home to the most delicious Mexican meal ever. Ask my friend Court…it’s GOOD.
And, of course—Margaritas!
Remember Drunk Week? My liver sure does. Matthew posted two incredible margarita recipes. Try these out…they’re a far cry from the Aristocrat Tequila and Sour Mix swill at Casa del Canine.
From all of us here at Kitchen Mischief, have a fantastic Cinco de Mayo, and please don’t drink and drive. For that matter, don’t drink and rollerblade, either. I did, and barely lived to tell about it. But that’s another story altogether. 😉
And what Cinco de Mayo post would be complete without an homage to my favorite faux Mexican? As covered in past posts, Courtney is really not Mexican at all…it’s just a running joke that I obviously can’t let go of. All that being said, Court is one of our best recipe testers…she actually reads the blog and cooks from it. It makes us feel very special. Thank you all for reading, and have a fantastic Cinco de Mayo!
