Over the years, I’ve had a long love affair with Mexican food. I must have 50 different taco recipes floating around my kitchen. All with an abundance of fresh ingredients, fragrant aromas that fill my house and robust and spicy flavored dishes that make my family smile big toothy smiles.
The Bennett Crew and I have spent countless summer evenings sitting out on the deck, dining on ceviche, salsa, tacos, grilled meats and fish, all with the flavors of Mexico. Sipping on sangria, cerveza or bright pink virgin margarita’s while watching the sun set in the distance. Ahhh… makes me think of vacation.
In honor of Cinco de Mayo, I thought I’d round-up some of my favorite Mexican and South American recipes. Some of the recipes are easily prepared and some take a little extra time, but so worth the effort.
Wishing you all a fun, festive, and of course, completely delicious Cinco de Mayo celebration!
