Don't Forget the Limes and Salt

!Feliz Cinco de Mayo!

I'm celebrating tonight by making carnitas tacos, saffron rice, refried beans and of course the usual condiments: cilantro, queso fresco, crema, lime and fresh avocados. I use a lot of lime, cilantro and cumin in my recipes - for that fresh, authentic flavor.

Walter, our fearless leader (who happens to be a professionally trained chef) also brought in some goodies for us today.
Homemade veggie pico de gallo!
It had three kinds of peppers, carrot, onion, avocado, corn, chili's and tomato with fresh lime juice, cilantro, salt and pepper. This was a very crisp, refreshing take on your classic pico.

And what would a celebration be without the tequila?
Patron seems to be the favorite around here - CHEERS!

How are you celebrating Cinco de Mayo?
