In honor of Cinco de Mayo my neighbor hosted an amazing party and asked me to assist her with the planning by bringing some of my delicious homemade Mexican dishes. I don’t know the history behind Cinco de Mayo, but I do know it’s a great excuse to eat some tasty Mexican food and Salud with Margaritas! The party featured my signature Guacamole Recipe, a tasty taco bar with a selection of chipotle chicken, grilled shrimp, ground turkey, chorizo and all the toppings you could ever need. I also made my Jalepeno Deviled Eggs, garnished with spicy chorizo. The highlight of the table were my Miniature Taco Salads, topped with some guacamole, crema and a slice of radish.
Bite sized portions are so important when entertaining. You want to give your guests a chance to eat, but also not have them bogged down with a full plate while mingling. My mini taco salads were easy to make and are a colorful addition to your food spread for any occasion. I made the taco shells with a muffin tin and spiced up the ground turkey with my own taco seasoning blend.
