Cinco de Mayo Recipe – Mexi-Cali Salad Con Asada
Cinco de Mayo is coming up in a few days. For those of you that have had zero access to information or popular culture the past couple decades, this is basically the equivalent of the Fourth of July for Mexico. In this country it’s celebrated more like St. Patrick’s Day however, with a bunch of drunk white kids pretending they are a different nationality for a day, and embarassing themselves in the process.
One of the best parts about getting older is finding new ways to be festive and celebrate holidays without killing yourself, even those that do not pertain to us, like Cinco de Mayo or Bastille Day and of course Belgian Independence Day (better take the following day off work).
Cinco de Mayo occurs this coming Monday, which should water it down a bit, and might be nice. For those of you that will be celebrating on Sunday afternoon with friends & family and are looking for some cooking recipes with a Cinco de Mayo flare – The Rugged Male is your huckleberry.
We teamed up with the folks at Cholula and searched Mexico for chefs and recipes (OK, the neighborhood), to bring you a muchisimo Cinco de Mayo recipe for your celebration. Cholula hot sauce is manufactured in Jalisco Mexico. The name Cholula is derived from the oldest inhabited city in Mexico of the same name, which is 2500 years old. Cholula blends just the right amount of flavor and spice, so its not too hot and packs a wallop of taste. They are no artificial ingredients in Cholula Hot Sauce making it the perfect ingredient for cooking, as well as being your go-to hot sauce.
