No matter what your ethnicity or heritage may be, there is one general rule about party-planning in the United States: people love Cinco De Mayo. It's that simple, really. On what other holiday is it possible to have Happy Hour for a full day? Here are some great Cinco de Mayo food ideas that you should add to this year's festivities.
Some of my favorite dishes come from the flavors that center around Cinco De Mayo. My always-requested Twice Drunken Chili becomes the perfect marinade for Dos Drunken Enchiladas.
Spiced with Thai Chili-infused Tequila and sweetened with Mexican ale, my Dos Drunken Enchiladas is perfectly balanced dish adds strong taste to any dinner setting. Finish off the display with a dash of tequila and light the concoction on fire - instant fireworks show. And watch out... the capful of tequila may get you giggling!
My Salt & Pepper Margarita is the unabashed compliment to any Cinco De Mayo dish. Tequila infused with organically-grown Thai Chilis gives the margarita its signature bite. To balance, I have dusted the rim with a smoked sea salt. Both savory and spicy, the Salt & Pepper Margarita is a no-brainer for a successful party starter - and a sure way to continue its success all night long!
