Happy Cinco de Mayo

Go to fullsize image

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
