Cinco de Mayo Menu
- RO*TEL’s Rockin’ Guac
- Corn chips
- Pork Carnitas
- Sides: flour and corn tortillas, rice, beans, beans
- Bud Light Lime-A-Ritas®
- Glass of water
Let’s start with RO*TEL’s Rockin’ Guac. You can find the recipe right here.
Guacamole is the perfect appetizer with corn chips, but also makes a great addition as a side to the main meal.
For the main, I made simple pork carnitas using a recipe from my favorite Mexican cookbook, “Truly Mexican,” by Roberto Santibanez.
They basically cooked themselves, everything tossed in a pot on the stove for an hour and a half and then transferred to the oven for 30 minutes.
Serve the pork carnitas with a mixture of flour and corn tortillas, rice, beans, beans and guacamole, with a few extra sliced onions, cilantro and lime. Guests can decide how they want to make their main dish which is perfect for guests with food allergies.
Don’t forget beverages, glasses of water and Bud Light Lime-A-Ritas® are perfect.
Spend less time in the kitchen and more time celebrating with family and friends this Cinco de Mayo.
