Fiesta Favorites for Cinco de Mayo

When you think of Cinco de Mayo, what comes to mind? Most likely some of the images that you might conjure up include food and drink, and for good reason! Nothing brings out the feel of Cinco de Mayo like some delicious festive fare. Mighty Max is here to share with you some of his favorites for the big day!

Start Early

In order to celebrate all day long, you have to start in the morning! Kick off your Cinco do Mayo by preparing some breakfast burritos in the AM.

Start with breakfast sausage in a pan over medium high heat until it’s cooked through and no pink remains. Next, melt butter over medium heat and sauté bell peppers, onions, and salt. Cook until the peppers have reached your desired crispness. Pair with fluffy scrambled eggs, cheese, and potatoes. Wrap in tortillas, and your Cinco de Mayo will be off to a great start!

Chips and Dips

Continue the party with some appetizing starters. Pair tortilla chips with delicious guacamole and salsa.

Guacamole:

Start by picking out the perfect avocado. It should be soft, but not too soft. Use the fleshy mass of skin by your thumb as a reference for how it should feel.

Combine 2-3 avocados, salt, pepper, lime juice and other spices to taste. Feel free to add onions, chopped tomatoes and serrano chilies. Finish by adding sour cream or cottage cheese to make your guacamole stand out from the crowd.

Salsa:
