Belated Cinco de Mayo


I ended up being busier than expected on Cinco de Mayo and so I didn’t do anything special to celebrate.  Yes, I know this is something we celebrate here and it’s really not that big of a deal – at least celebration wise – in Mexico.  But I still like to be a little festive.  So tonight I pulled together a simple, belated Cinco de Mayo meal. 
I had some leftover small steak pieces that I just quickly sauteed then drizzled with a little lime juice; warmed up a couple of corn tortilla shells; added the steak, some onion slices, avocado and drizzled a spicy sour cream (made with a little chipotle in adobo sauce mixed with the sour cream) over it all.  
Add a bottle of chilled Mexican beer and you have a simple celebratory dinner.

    Hi JenJ:  ;-) The lime adds a really nice brightness to the meat.  Amazing how such a little thing makes a big taste difference!
