Ses de Mayo

May 7, 2010

Good morning! 

Last night, in honor of our missing Cinco de Mayo meal, we enjoyed a Mexican feast—it works to celebrate Ses de Mayo just as well!

For our dinner, we had “build your own burritos” with all the fixings.  The main star was the vegetable filling:

Veggie Burrito Filling:

In a pan, my mom sauteed onions, mushrooms, zucchini, tomatoes, green and red bell peppers, carrots, 1 can of olives, and 1 can of chopped green chilies, plus garlic, cumin, chili powder, red pepper, and salt.  She cooked it down for about twenty minutes, until the veggies were very soft.  Yum!

Along with the filling, we had guacamole, salsa, cheese and cilantro, plus Mexican rice on the side.

    Sophie is SO precious! And your dinner sounds great! Love all the veggies 🙂
    And thank you for your comment and sharing that with me. I know you are right! And can I say that I’m SO impressed that you were able to write about it and share it with so many people! I know how scary that must’ve been.

    Burritos at home are the best! I love how you can throw whatever you want and still end up with way healthier option than if you went out!
