Cinco de Mayo—Celebrate Mexico

As most of us know, May 5, Cinco de Mayo, is not Mexican Independence Day. It is a widely celebrated holiday, especially among Americans of Mexican heritage. And like most holidays, family and food are an important part of the day.

As always, prices are for this area and for Safeway and Fry's will require at least a Club Membership card. Some may require digital coupons as well. We try to indicate all restrictions, special conditions etc. Sprouts does not require any cards and does not have any special savings days. Every week Sprouts has double ad Wednesday, when you get last week’s and this week’s ad prices. All three stores have digital savings available to those with appropriate accounts.

Go to their web pages for details and directions. Fry’s at least will give you the advertised digital price if you state you do not have the necessary technology. Safeway sometimes has coupons which you can access digitally or clip out of the ad.

Fish Tacos

Mexican Rice
Grandma’s Secret. Really interesting technique.

Recipe: Lynne’s Creamy Refried Beans

This are always a hit at our house. Problem is that I don’t typically measure much, but it’s worth trying, honest. 

1 large can Rosarita refried beans - the original kind. 
1 8 oz. Package cream cheese
1/2 onion, chopped
1 can green chiles
1/2 cup salsa, give or take
2 cups grated cheddar cheese
2 cups grated jack cheese

Place the beans in an oven-safe glass baking dish. Add the cream cheese, breaking it into chunks. Stir in the onion, chiles and salsa. Also stir in half of the grated cheese. Microwave on high for 5 minutes. 

Remove from microwave, and stir well, getting all the cheeses (is that a word?) mixed in well with the beans. Sprinkle the remaining cheese on top, and put in a regular oven at 350º for 30 minutes. 

Remove from oven, serve hot with chips. Or just eat it on the side. No matter what, it’s pretty addictive.
