Happy Cinco de Mayo!

Thursday, May 5, 2011


Happy Cinco de Mayo!  Today is also Mr. SGCC’s birthday and we’re going out tonight!  I don’t know if we’ll do Mexican again or not, (we do it every year), but wherever we end up, I’ll be thankful that I don’t have to cook in this heat.  For those of you planning to cook, and who live in a more temperate climate, here are some muy delicioso Cinco de Mayo ideas from the SGCC archives.



Easy Chorizo and Potato Huaraches


Enchiladas Suizas with Quick Avocado Salsa


Chile Rellenos


Snapper Veracruz


Los Frijoles Refritos


Fideos Ole


Grilled Steak Fajitas




Spicy Melon Salsa


Pumpkin Flan

    When I was in Seattle over the weekend I purchased several ingredients to make Mexican. I meant to make something for Cinco de mayo but life has a way of getting in the way:D All of your dishes look amazing Susan.

    Happy B-day to the Mr. SGCC!!! Hope you guys had a beautiful celebration.

    Since the weather refuses to stay warm in NY, a nice cookup in a Mexican kitchen would have been welcoming. Also, going out for Mexican on 5/5 is a bit dangerous. Too many people! I’d rather eat your food pictured above.

    All of the above look great! Will have to try them out especially the enchiladas.

kiss the cook!

Hello and welcome to SGCC! I’m Susan, a professional writer, food columnist, recipe developer, wife, mother, daughter and sister, who used to be a lawyer in a previous life. My love of food comes from a long line of wonderful and creative Italian home cooks who didn’t always have a lot, but knew how to make a lot out of what they had. I hope that you enjoy yourself while you’re here, and visit often! read more >>
