Cinco de Mayo


Mango-Sprite virgin daiquiris from Pioneer Woman, but I used frozen mango chunks and omitted the ice.

Refried beans from Appetite for Reduction using beans that I soaked and cooked in the big Crockpot.

Sauteed zucchini and squash... Gotta have veggies!

Tamales with two fillings

(1) spinach, mushroom, onion, and garlic

(2) black beans (soaked and cooked in the little Crockpot), chipotle peppers, diced cherry tomatoes, green bell pepper, and carrots

I used this masa dough recipe and loved the visual instructions. I will try that filling out soon!

Avocado cashew cream to smother on the tamales!

I regret soaking all my corn husks. I tossed them after soaking because I didn't want them to get funky, but I still have leftover fillings. Need more husks!
