Cinco de Mayo is almost upon us, the day that commemorates the victory of the Mexican army over the French near the city of Puebla on 5 May 1862. In the U.S., Cinco de Mayo is a day to celebrate Mexican culture. If you know me, you gotta know that I’m down with that & I hardly need any excuse to whip up some Mexican food. I thought I’d celebrate the day with Rick Bayless Brick Red Mole napped over Shredded Barbacoa Beef Enchiladas & see what I thought of his recipe.
If you follow me, you’ve all heard me talking about my folks (my favorite octogenarians, I call them) and their love for steak. I think it’s rubbed off on me! I can’t always just have plain ol’ steak, though, so I’m always coming up with variations I think the folks will like. We all fell hard for this Carne Asada Steak Tacos recipe.
