Cinco De Mayo Dish for the Cooking Challenged

Recommended Posts

So I am going to a friends house for a Cinco De Mayo party on Tuesday. I am a pretty challenged cook. Seriously.


Any ideas for an easy dish for me to bring?


Ill be forever grateful!

Funny, I got an email the other day about Cinco De Mayo dishes, from the Foodnetwork.

Here's a link to their page with Cinco De Mayo recipes:

Maybe you can find one thats pretty easy. I've been dying to make the Chicken Enchiladas that they have pictured. Maybe I'll get to that next weekend!


I just started browsing thru the recipes. Do you like Shrimp Taco's?? This recipe is rated as "easy":



Not sure how you feel about Guacamole but the Chunky Guacamole recipe seems easy too:



Or, how about going really easy & making a drink?? Is that an option? Here's their Mango Margarita Recipe:

Here's an easy, yummy recipe for Cheesy Bean Dip that I poached from my future MIL:


1 can refried beans

1 envelope enchilada seasoning

1 block cream cheese

1 8oz sour cream

1 4oz chopped green chilis


Mix together and bake at 350 degrees for 15-20 min. Sprinkle with shredded cheese (she uses the Mexican mix) and chopped green onions.


I use all the low-fat (no fat free...doesn't take right to me in this recipe) ingredients where I can. This is an easy dip to make and it always completely gone by the end of the party. My co-workers call this my "Crack Dip" because they can't stay away from it. Just serve it with some tortilla chips and you're ready to go! Hope this helps:)
