Wednesday's In the Know: The Ultimate Cinco De Mayo Fiesta
With Cinco de Mayo tomorrow, it’s time to lay out the perfect plan for your ultimate (culinary) fiesta!
I have a whole slew of recipes on my website, including everything from my ultimate guacamole to grilled pineapple and mango salsas and numerous tacos, but what makes Cinco de Mayo so special is inviting all your friends and family over, and eating family style! My favorite way to do this is by creating a taco bar! Tortillas can be kept warm covered in a 200ºF oven or wrapped in towels. Grilled meat and sautéed veggies can be adorned with ultimate customization by each guest as they choose from a salsa bar, guacamole (of course) and other fresh ingredients to finish!
Make a big batch of margaritas while keeping ice on the side (to not water them down), guava fresca and horchata for the kiddos and you are ready to celebrate! Personally speaking, I find that when given the opportunity to engage in a party, like making your own tacos, people really feel apart of the celebration. Have your guests bring their favorite salsa recipe and a bag of chips, for example, for the ultimate collaborative celebration.
Most importantly, think options, think variety and have fun – while of course – drinking responsibly!
