Yummy Cino De Mayo Dish!
Cinco De Mayo is one of my favorite days to celebrate all things Mexican!
I cook this cuisine on a regular basis whether it be for a cooking class, while being a personal chef in someone's home or when throwing my own event for friends and family.
Some of my favorite Mexican dishes to make include Turkey Chili, Chili Stuffed Peppers, Blue corn Taco's and my recently created Cilantro Corn Salsa w/ Quinoa and diced veggies.
This dish is great for Summer entertaining or to bring to your next Potluck Picnic. The best part is, it's super easy to make and super flavorful!
It just so happens to be on the menu for my up-coming event Healthy Picnic & BBQ Eats
I hope you enjoy this recipe as much as I do!
