Sweet or spicy? What’s your favorite flavor? How about both?! That’s what I put together for a Cinco de Mayo celebration!
I’m not the best cook when it comes to Mexican fare, but IMUSA GlobalKitchen sent me some products to use in my kitchen to celebrate #CincodeMayo.
I have never made homemade tortillas before but it was a challenge I was willing to take, for my soft tacos. The IMUSA Tortilla Press from the GlobalKitchen Mexico product line features a traditional and durable design that allows for perfectly pressed homemade tortillas with just the right thickness and round shape.I used this Taste of Home Homemade Tortilla Recipe. I started small folks 🙂 I wasn’t entirely sure that I could pull this off. But this gives you an idea of how easy it is to make your own tortillas at home!
I did it! I made a tortilla all by myself (yes I’m pretty proud of that)! If I can do it YOU can do it 🙂
With a bit more practice I’ll be impressing my guests at next year’s Cinco de Mayo dinner!
Looking for a simple dish to put together for a Cinco de Mayo party? Then here is a great recipe for Sweet and Spicy Soft Tacos that is quick and easy.
- 1 pound of ground beef, browned and cooked
- Taco Seasoning
- 6 - 8" flour tortillas (homemade or store bought)
- 1 avocado, sliced and cubed
- Peach Mango Salsa
- Shredded Lettuce
- Shredded Cheddar Cheese
- Add your desired amount of taco seasoning to the prepared beef for your taste according to the instructions on the package.
- Warm the tortillas. (An IMUSA Cloth Tortilla Warmer works great for this step!)
- Place beef, salsa, avocado, lettuce and cheese on the tortilla and fold to eat.
