I always make a corned beef and cabbage for a St Patrick’s Day dinner, come May I always make something to celebrate Cinco De Mayo and 4th of July requires something red white and blue for dessert. You get the picture, I’m pretty sure I just enjoy making something a little different and I know we like to eat everything so we’ll just about celebrate every holiday no matter who’s it is.
I have been trying to come up with a few things to make for this year’s Cinco De Mayo. It being on a Tuesday it needs to be a few things I can either prepare ahead of time or something I can throw together fairly quickly. You might even have the ingredients on hand.
A couple of months ago I made some Huevos Rancheros for breakfast, the version I made went together pretty fast and tasted delicious, you could definitely throw this together and have it on the table within 15-20 minutes max. Maybe not for everyone but I am all over this for this Tuesday.
Flour or Corn tortilla
Chives or Green Onions (opt)
Heat up the refried beans in a small sauce pan and set aside.
In a small fry pan add the oil and fry the tortilla till crispy on both sides, remove to a plate. If needed add a little oil or butter to the same fry pan, pan fry your eggs, we like over easy, and you can make them anyway you like them.
Layer tortilla, beans, cheese, egg, salsa, sour cream, chives or onions = Enjoy!!!!
Mexican 7 Layer Dip
Here is a bonus that you must make if you are having or going to a party. I will confess I made this just for us, it took us a few days to eat it but it was damn good!!!
Taco seasoning mix
Shredded cheddar cheese
Chopped tomatoes – seeded will help with how wet the dip gets – I always seed mine
Mix the taco seasoning into the sour cream, set aside.
Layer refried beans, sour cream mix, salsa, lettuce, cheese, tomatoes top with green onions
Happy Cinco De Mayo!!!!!
