a sauce for cinco de mayo
Happy Cinco de Mayo, a day that gives us an excuse to eat Mexican food to our heart's content! (Did we really need an excuse for that? Well, we don't in our household.) But, nonetheless, Mandi and I chose this week's recipe mostly for its Mexican-y flair, but also for its simplicity and flexibility. Whip up this easy and tasty sauce and you can wrap just about anything in a tortilla and turn it into an enchilada.
I wish I had some witty story or engaging thoughts to accompany this recipe, but the truth is that it's been a very long Cinco de Mayo (filled, oddly enough, with very little, if any, Mexican-ness). So, this mama and enchilada-maker has little energy left for wit. Hopefully the fact that you are obtaining such a versatile recipe will more than make up for it. As for me, I'm off to dream of tacos and hat dances and other Cinco-de-Mayo-appropriate dreams.
