The Thursday Thirteen – 05/04/2017

Are you ready to shake your maracas? I know, I know, that sounds a little dirty. What I really mean, is are you ready for Cinco de Mayo tomorrow? It’s finally on a Friday y’all, which I think is more than a reason to celebrate. Also, let’s be honest, who doesn’t love wearing a giant sombrero and singing ay ya ya yai? The beer, salsa, and copious amounts of guacamole sure don’t hurt either. Oh, and don’t forget, Breakfast Burrito Green Chile Enchiladas are the perfect hangover food.

    This looks so wonderful and I’m in love with the avocado pinata! Thank you for sharing!

    • I’m going to have to remember it for next year, so I can try making one in time for Cinco de Mayo. It would be fun to have a whack at it!

    I have been looking for a good empanada recipe. The 10 minute Mexican bean soup looks delicious. Thank you for sharing.

  • I love bean soup, so I’ll be adding this to my “To Try” list! I’m also sort of in love with that avacado piñata!

    • The soup is so easy that it’s almost a sin…I have a feeling the piñata will take a whole lot longer to make!
