12 Cinco de Mayo Recipe Ideas (part 1)

How about having Mexican food for breakfast, lunch, and dinner this Cinco de Mayo?  Count me in.

I’ll have a glass of that pico de gallo please.  I love pico de gallo.  It’s my go-to scramble egg topping when I have it on hand.

It’s Cinco de Mayo for me every week because if I don’t have some sort of Mexican food at least one time during the week I feel like something just isn’t right.

And enchilada sauce is one of my faves.  When at a restaurant I just can’t resist trying out their enchiladas.

Ok enough about me and my Mexican food cravings.
