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:

Recipes and Cooking : Holidays and Parties : Cinco De Mayo : Food Network


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:)

I love the title.  I definitely fit in the category of a challenged cooker, it could be an entirely new thread.

    • Paradisus is actually notorious for doing this and we have to fight with them all the time to get the rates lowered. Are you using a TA to assist you?
    • Moon palace cancun offers Sikh priest. Janina Mendoza in weddings was very nice and able to help me.. suggest to contact her.
    • First of all congrats!!! Costa Rica is a magical place for a wedding  Are you working with a travel agency for your rooms? If not, I would highly encourage you to do so because an agent can often help you get in contact with the wedding department to get that conversation/communication going. I would suggest working with Wright Travel Agency, the official agency of this forum. These agents are specialist in destination weddings and have access to great promotions and group perks in addition to being able to secure the best rates for your group. Best of all the agency does not charge any fees to use their service, but it will take a load off your plate not having to worry about arrangements for travel for you and your guests. Shoot an email over to info@wrighttravelagency.com and one of the team members will get back to you and get the ball rolling for your group and the wedding department! Best wishes!!!
