OK, so we didn’t really have a fiesta last night. We stayed in, watched American Idol, and caught up on DVR.
Obviously, we’re big time party animals.
But since I am all about celebrating any holiday in some small way, last night’s dinner at home was in honor of Cinco de Mayo.
When I was menu planning last week, I almost decided to make fajitas (which I still plan to make soon). However, after reading Angela’s post the other day, I was inspired to make some enchiladas!
Unfortunately, I was not a very good planner and forgot to buy black beans. Rather than get myself worked up into a panic, I thought fast and used some chicken instead for protein. And since I had already un-veganized her recipe, I sprinkled Michael’s enchiladas with real cheese (mine were naked).
Aside from the changes above, I made a few other modifications:
- Omitted the cumin
- Used a can of diced tomatoes instead of pasta sauce
- Added 1/2 cup yellow corn kernels
- Used my guacamole recipe rather than the cream sauce
We also had chips with salsa and salad. It was a very yummy and festive dinner! Unfortunately, the mariachi band that I hired to play during our meal couldn’t make it though. 😉
Did you acknowledge Cinco de Mayo yesterday? What did you do or eat?
