Cinco de Mayo Dinner

Shrimp tacos

Monday was Cinco de Mayo so I decided to get into the spirit of the day and made Shrimp tacos. This dish is light and refreshing and I will be making it quite a few times this summer as the heat sets in. Along with the tacos I also made the refried bean again which are fast becoming a go to side dish because of how easy they are to make and how delicious they are. Give these a shot some time this summer and enjoy them with a nice cold beer or margarita!

Cinco De Mayo Dinner

For Cinco de Mayo I decided to whip up a few Mexican dishes. The guacamole recipe is quite simple and very delicious. Just remember to use a good amount of lime juice to prevent the avocados from turning brown. If you do not feel like chopping all the vegetables you can just mash up the avocados and add fresh salsa. When making the refried beans I used a mix of ancho and chipotle powder but you can used whatever type of chili powder you like most. The center piece of the meal was the chicken enchiladas. While they take a little bit of time to prepare they are well worth it. Depending on the size of your pan this recipe will make 5-8 wraps. you can also serve this dish with yellow rice, my favorite is Goya. You will find the recipes below, Enjoy!
