Seriously Cinco de Mayo!

This could be one of my favorite holidays, and since I’m Mexican, I totally claim it as my own because I can not get enough of the food.  My LA bff told me when we met that she doesn’t like Mexican food and I almost broke up with her on the spot.  We have since worked on her palate.

So in celebration of beer drinking donkey’s IMG_2640and mariachi bands (oh, and that whole Mexican victory over France thing), I am sharing with you my fav mango bean salsa and margarita mayhem recipe!  In case you want a refresher for what May Five is really about, here’s your quickie wiki version.

Mango Salsa (feel free to adjust measurements)
