Cinco De Mayo Recipes/ideas
Saturday is Cinco de Mayo and our neighbors are having a get-together. She is doing a Build Your Own Taco bar. I am sure there will be Borracho Beans, the ever-present Chili Cheese dip, chips & salsa.
I want to bring something substantial to fit the theme, but everything I can think of that can be made a bit ahead seems to closely resemble tacos! LOL
So far the only thing I have come up with is a Jicama Mango Salad, Corn and Black Bean Salad, or maybe enchiladas.
Anyone have any other good ideas? I suppose I could do carnitas as an alternative to ground taco meat, but I don't want to step on anyone's toes...
Maybe a shrimp appetizer?
Tamales? (Although I have never made them...)
Falutas? Can they be made ahead and re-warmed?
