Cinco de Mayo is this Thursday. You haven’t even prepared for the party you’re attending. You’re supposed to make that thing you said you would. What was it, oh yeah, salsa. Rachel was counting on you. You promised. You scour the internet for a recipe. This one on D.R. Horton’s blog pops up. You think, “How could I mess this up?” It gets made. It’s delicious. You arrive at the party, salsa in hand. You realize you brought the party. Everyone loves it. You’re humbled. You reward yourself with a margarita. Okay, maybe two margaritas.
Don’t Cinco de Cry-o if you didn’t have time to make a dish, or maybe you just didn’t know what to bring? Well have we got a salsa recipe for you! Can you really ever have too many salsas? The answer is no.
Best Salsa Recipe Ever
Hot sauce, salsa, that red one, the stuff Rick made – whatever you want to call it – mild or spicy, your chips will be begging to be washed over in a riptide of tomato-y goodness. Get ready for a taste bud party.
If you don’t get a kick out of watching food get chopped and then pulverized in a blender, first, stop and reconsider your life choices, then, scroll to the bottom of this page where we’ve posted the recipe and rejoice in its delicious simplicity.
Guacamole, Queso, and More
If salsa isn’t your thing, it’s other half, guacamole, is always an option. We think it should count as its own food group, but that’s another story. If you’re wanting some guac recipes that’ll hit just as hard as Chipotle’s, scoot on over here and check out Food Network’s Alton Brown’s guacamole recipe or better yet, any of the recipes they have for the velvety goodness that is the avocado.
Don’t forget guacamole and salsa’s favorite cousin, queso. This tomatillo verde sauce & cheese dip adds just a little bit of oomph to the normal pot of cheese. If you’re wanting a go-to queso, this one is sure to please.
If you’re looking for meal-worthy food, though we could argue chips and dip are a perfectly acceptable meal, check out these street taco recipes for more table ideas. Taco ‘bout a party right there.
But wait, there’s more.
If you call within 15 minutes, you’ll not only get the salsa, guacamole, queso and street taco recipes, but we’ll throw in a couple of margarita recipes. Don’t actually call, that’s not a thing. But these margarita recipes are definitely a thing.
The Top Margaritas
Behold, the margarita, the classic Mexican beverage that comes frozen or on the rocks. Here’s a gathering of the 11 best margaritas, hands down. Whether it be a traditional lime-flavored margarita or the more creative frozen mango margarita or coconut creamsicle margarita, there’s a recipe to fit your groove.
We’re going to stop right there before you spill salsa all down your shirt out of excitement. Now, let’s all raise a glass and tip our party sombreros to celebrate Mexico’s unlikely victory over the French back in 1862 during the Battle of Puebla.
Happy Cinco de Mayo!
