Cinco de Mayo is fast approaching, and while we won't be celebrating with big parties this year, it's easy to whip up a delicious Mexican-inspired spread any night of the week.
Made with a bunch of pantry staples, these ground beef tacos are my family's go-to recipe. One of the best parts of this creative spread (aside from being able to wash it all down with a cold pitcher of peachy margaritas), is that it's so easy to customize with everyone's favorite toppings.
Let's talk about guacamole because you simply can't have a wonderful fiesta dinner without guacamole. I prefer using Hass avocados, but you can use any kind currently available in a store near you. My little secret? Jalapeño juice from jarred peppers for a little briny, tangy heat. This will knock your socks off. The final ingredient in my dreamy, creamy guacamole is sour cream. I know it might be controversial, but trust me — it's delicious.
What goes better with tacos than a big, cold pitcher of margaritas? My peachy margarita is just like sipping summertime in a glass.
If tequila isn't really your thing, then my pantry party sangria is also a great drink to serve with this spread. It's fruity, can be made with whatever wine you have on hand and has a beautiful color.
Enjoy your fiesta!
