Hola Amigos

It's Cinco de Mayo! As a treat to all my ethnic readers, I will write the rest of my post in Spanish.

Hola. Benvenidos a mi blog. Hoy es una dia especial, Cinco de Mayo! *puedes oir los Mariachis?*

Vamanos a la cocina para beber Coronas y preparar tostadas de gallo.

Okay I'm totally out of energy for Monday morning Spanish. The 8 years of high school and college courses did not help me whatsoever. My 7 year old nephew can speak better than I can and he's only 1/2 Mexican.

Chicken Tostadas.

1/4-1/2 cup canola oil or vegetable oil
4 corn tortillas
1 1/2 cups shredded lettuce
2 chicken breasts, cooked and shredded
3/4 cup salsa
1 can refried beans
1 cup cheddar cheese or monterey jack cheese
1 avocado, cut into 1/2 inch chunks
1/2 cup diced tomatoes
sour cream (optional)

1. Heat 1/4 inch of oil in small skillet.
2. Cook tortillas in hot oil one at a time for 20-40 seconds on each side or until crisp and golden brown.
3. Drain tortillas on a paper towel; keep warm in foil in 250° F oven until serving time.
4. Heat beans with a touch of oil.
5. To assemble, top each tostada with beans, lettuce, chicken, salsa, cheese, avocado and tomatoes.
Top with sour cream, if desired.

Serve with an icy Corona or better yet a bucket of Coronitas.

Ay Yi Yi es una fiesta!

    My son is in his first year of Spanish in HS. I remember very little of mine... our conversations obviously take on an almost surreal tone, but are hilarious.

    Feliz Cinco de Mayo!

    Yum, yum - I'm thinking tacos or tostadas after our Little League game tonight will be in order. And, of course una cerveza!

    I took French in highschool.

    It is equally useless to me these days.

    I do know a little spanish though (better than Punkinhead's, even) because I love mexican food!
