Cinco de Mayo

Because the Mexican culture is such a huge part of our Santa Barbara community, I don’t even consider “Mexican Food” to be international cuisine. I feel like Mexican food is just our…food. With that in mind, here is a list of Cinco de Mayo fare along with my favorite complementary drinks.

Rajas as a side dish

Rajas: Roasted Poblanos with Onion and Cheese

jas can be made as a side dish for a summer meal, awesome vegetarian tacos or used as the stuffing for very yummy tamales or gorditas. I made Rajas for Cinco de Mayo as one of my taco options and my guests were completely floored. They are simple to make with tasty results. They are great for entertaining because you can make them in advance. I had a ton of requests for this recipe, so here you go. Fresh ingredients, simply prepared, with incredible results, this is an eat-drink-garden kind of a recipe.
