Cinco de Mayo happens to also be my Anniversary and right now on bed rest waiting for our newest addition (first baby girl) to arrive. I can't get out of bed to cook anything wonderful and fantastic to celebrate any of the special occasions listed but I thought I would share again some of my favorite Mexican inspired dishes. I say inspired because I in no way am an authentic Mexican cook. Before marrying my husband five years ago I would have told anyone that asked that I liked just about any food, except Mexican food! Of course when I ended up making a a few hundred (and no I am not kidding) tamales with my future in-laws for the reception I figured I better find a way to like Mexican food.
So if you are still trying to figure out something to cook for Cinco de Mayo here are some options.
Chicken Fajita Burritos - Slow Cooker
Roasted Tomatillo Salsa
Elote - Mexican Street Corn
