Cinco de Mayo Roundup

I know I'm late, but I have a good excuse.  I've been working on my second and third cookbooks and they've consumed my time and creativity.
In other words, I've not been making very many new recipes, but here's a few ideas for Cinco de Mayo.
We do love our spicy south of the border food in this house.
We really do.  In fact on the menu for the coming week, we're having Enchilada Casserole one night, Taco's another night, Chile Verde and Chicken Acapulco for two more nights.  And I know they'll all be eaten with relish, or maybe just tortilla's on the side. 
Jalapenos, Albondigas Soup, Cheese Enchiladas, Chicken Acapulco

And there's always breakfast:  
Huevo Rancheros, Breakfast Burrito, Peggy's Paparito's, Stacked Enchilda

Stacked Enchiladas

And if you're looking for dipping sauces. 
Chile de Arbol, Pico de Gallo, Quick and Easy Salsa, Salsa Taquera Rosa

I've been know to make some of this Salsa Taquera Rosa, just because, and it's great for dipping chips into or even dolloping some on some fried eggs for breakfast.
Or even some Chile de Arbol Sauce.  I do have some chile's in the pantry that need to be used.
I'll be making some Pico de Gallo for the Chicken Acapulco as well this week, but I gotta say it's a great sauce for dipping chips into or just eating by the spoonful.
I also have the old family recipe for a quick salsa that's pretty darn good.

Hope you got a few ideas here and if none of these appeal to you, you can always search for more Mexican recipes in the search box on the blog.

Happy Cinco de Mayo.
