Top Recipes for Cinco De Mayo

Cinco de Mayo, or the 5th of May, marks the first holiday of the year where we enjoy warmer weather, tequila, good food and a fiesta honoring our love for Mexican culture. Sure, we are supposed to be celebrating the Mexican victory over French forces at the Battle of Puebla in 1862, but let's not get into the semantics. Rather, let us rejoice in the fiesta. See our top recipes for Cinco De Mayo to make the most deliciously festive cinco de mayo spread.

Tequila & Margaritas!

Let's talk tequila. We love a good reposado, blanco, anejo, silver, extra anejo. Come to think of it, we love all tequila all the hard ways.

Micheladas

Tacos

Grab some corn tortillas, toppings, flank steak and get to marinating! Without the marinade your carne asada tacos are just steak tacos and that's fine, just like Taco Bell is fine to enjoy and celebrate Cinco De Mayo. With that said, give it at least few hours to marinate and then bbq it over charcoal for the most authentic chargrilled flavors.

2 lbs flank steak
2 limes juiced
Juice of 1 orange
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 jalapeno, seeded and diced
1 teaspoon ground cumin
Salt (Bloody Gerry Habanero Sea Salt if you like spicy!)and freshly ground black pepper, to taste
1 teaspoon of paprika

 

Mix and soak the steak for at least 3 hours. BBQ until charred and to your liking. Finely chop the steak and make those tacos you've been drooling over on instagram.

Guacamole

If you have extra money to throw around, consider buying lots of $2 avocados at your local California grocery store and making an extra large bowl of guacamole for your friends and family to be green with envy (do share though). Be sure to post about it too.

Mix everything together and enjoy! Save a few leaves of cilantro for garnish, or completely leave out if you think cilantro tastes like soap water like our dad says.

10 avocados - peeled, pitted, and mashed
1 lime, juiced
1 lemon, juiced
2 teaspoons of salt (Bloody Gerry Gourmet Habanero Sea Salt if you like it SPICY!)
½ cup diced sweet white onion
1 Jalapeno, deseeded and finely chopped
⅓ cup chopped fresh cilantro
4 roma (plum) tomatoes, diced
1 teaspoon finely minced garlic (Optional)
1 pinch ground cayenne pepper (Optional)
