Cinco de Mayo

I can't believe that tomorrow is already Cinco de Mayo!  I have been so busy with spring repairs on the house that I completely forgot about this fun day.  For many who have pepper allergies, it is easy to see why it might be overlooked!  Here is my game plan, including ingredients, and I will work to get the recipes added so that you can celebrate this holiday tomorrow, this weekend, or any day that you feel like a FIESTA!

The Menu

Taco Salad: beef, dried oregano, onion, sugar, lettuce, salt
Cilantro Lime Rice
Mango Salsa: fresh mangoes (may use chopped frozen ones if fresh is not available), cilantro, red onion, salt, fresh lime
Horchata: long grain rice, sugar, brown sugar, water

The Fun

And for those who really want to celebrate, add a touch of Mexican culture with a Mexican Hat Dance.  Grab your sombrero and follow these directions for a Mexican Hat Dance to get your group moving!
