Cauliflower Rice Carne Asade Bowls with Mano Salsa

I have a confession. I know that they are all of the rage, but I have yet to have one of the trending "bowls" of anything. I would guess that the last time I had a bowl of something, it was cereal, about 10 years ago. As the author of this recipe states, "It's full of color, flavor and texture, plus healthy at the same time." 

Lemony Lime Island Mango Mezcal Breeze
Let's get this fiesta fired up with a cocktail suitable for Summer and Cinco de Mayo. And if you didn't know, Mezcal is tequila’s fiery, smokey sister. Cheers!

Tasty Tomatillo Shrimp 
I have never cooked with a tomatillo, but they are the cutest looking things! This is a simple recipe that gets its' freshness from cilantro.

Said to be one of the best party snacks ever! The tortillas have been deep fried, making them rich and flaky. Little bundles of fiesta fun!

Rosemary Citrus Shrimp Tacos
Flavorful and oh so colorful, these tacos only take 15 minutes to prepare. Ole!

Cheesy Chipotle Bacon Guacamole
This guac is spicy and smoky, filled with crunchy bacon and creamy cheese. And doesn't bacon make everything better?

Pulled Chicken And Black Bean Nachos
A classic that's been revamped and dressed up. Amazing how some sliced radishes and Avocado Crema can add some pizzaz to a tray!

Handmade Tamales
Don't feel like cooking, but have a crowd coming? These are delicious. I have had them. Order now for any party.

Cinco de Mayo Party Cocktail Napkins
Simply stated. I have a crush on this party goods store and their clever napkins.

 Chipotle Shredded Pork Enchiladas
This recipe is made with pork tenderloin, which I find to be the best for tacos. It's spicy, so if you are a whimp, you may want to use half of the peppers called  for. The combination of flavors along with a smoky-spicy chipotle sauce, sounds like a match made in heaven to me.

Arroz con Leche Pudding Pops 
Rice pudding pops? Who ever heard of such a thing! These creamy and chunky pops are a unique Summer treat.

Jane Fox's Famous Tortilla Soup
Courtesy of Rachael Ray. A Tortilla Soup that is fully loaded is hard to pass up. It calls for cans of tomatoes. My tip is to buy the Isola brand which has practically no sodium, and they are delicious. There is enough salt in other ingredients to make it flavorful.

Queso Fundido con Hongos
A vegetarian version of the original, this recipe features mushrooms, currents, and crunchy toasted nuts.

Ombre Chocolate Cake with Mexican Chocolate Frosting
How beautiful is this cake? The recipe author swears it is not that difficult to do the ombre frosting. The flavors sound wonderful - cinnamon-y and a little spicy! 
A Cozy Kitchen 

Huevos MotuleƱos
Think seriously over-the-top huevos rancheros—fried eggs over refried black beans on a fried tortilla, topped with salsa, and served with fried plantains, chorizo pork sausage, and crumbled Mexican queso fresco.
Simply Recipes  

Grilled Pineapple Jalapeno Margarita
A grilled slice of pineapple is one of life's best little things. This cocktail features caramelized pineapple, Jalapeno infused tequila, and a splash of vanilla. A beautiful blend of sweet, spicy and smoky. Bottoms up!
Platings and Pairings 

Banana Leaf-Grilled Fish with Coconut-Cilantro Sauce
Banana leaves impart a subtly sweet and grassy aroma to the fish. They also make for a pretty special presentation!
Williams Sonoma 

Mexican Salsa Dunked Sandwiches
 This may just be the most unique Mexican recipe that I have come across. Who doesn't like fried bread?
Host The Toast 

Chopped Chicken Taco Salad With Cheese Quesadilla Strips
This is sort of a copycat version of Chili’s Quesadilla Explosion Salad, but I am sure so much better. There's a ton of ingredients, which just means it is layered with flavor.

Mexican Street Corn Casserole
Fact: I don't eat corn, ever. It is just so carb laden. However, this recipe looks so fabulous, with the mayo, lime and three kinds of cheeses. I vow to make it, when the corn comes in this Summer, and eat it until I can't eat anymore.

Grilled Pork Tenderloin In Charred-Chile Adobo
It's just about grilling season and this dish is perfectly suited for the outdoor grill. P.S. There's orange juice in the ingredient list.

Flour Tortilla Kit
Now every night can be taco night. Here's everything you need for the best tortillas of your life.

Banana Fritters with Peanut Cinnamon Sugar + Mexican Chocolate Sauce
I grew up eating bananas covered in mayonnaise and peanuts (strange but delish). I never had a fried banana however. This dish sounds and looks crazy good.

Crab & Avocado Tacos
Nothing wrong with going a little fancy pants while celebrating! These look yummy.
Gourmet Traveller 

Margarita Tequila Marshmallows
Currently featured in Parents Magazine December 2016. What a fun bite for dessert, and a terrific hostess gift. A great way to end a Cinco de Mayo party!

P.S. There seems to be a little Mexican Hat Dance going on with the font on this post. I apologize, but just can't figure it out.
