Weekly Menu Plan 107 is a ticket to a delicious week of Cinco de Mayo inspired dinners, along with new twists on a few traditional favorites.
Is it just me, or dis it cool that Cinco de Mayo is on a Sunday this year? I mean, what’s better than an excuse to eat tacos all. weekend. long? I’m planning for shredded chicken tacos, roasted black bean tacos, and maybe even a freshly squeezed margarita. Also worth looking forward to? The Weekly Menu Plan 107. The Dinner Divas are taking inspiration from Cinco de Mayo for our delicious dinners this week. Take a look:
On Monday, I’m making my friend Angela’s family recipe for Homemade Flour Torillas to fill with succulent slow cooker pork carnitas. If you think that flour tortillas are too hard to make at home, I’m here to tell you otherwise. I include a step by step tutorial on the tortilla making process, so that your tortillas will be absolutely perfect. Seriously, Friends. Once you eat homemade flour tortillas, you’ll wonder how you ever lived without them in your life.
Jenni/Pastry Chef Online takes a trip down memory lane with her Chings Junior Style chimichangas. She rolls flour tortillas around spicy shredded chicken before giving them a quick trip through a fryer. Then she slices them into bite-sized chunks with a tasty avocado salad. A scoop of slow cooker refried beans wouldn’t be amiss with this dish.
Erin/The Speckled Palate eases into Wednesday with her Instant Pot Macaroni and Cheese. Do you have an Instant Pot? I absolutely love mine. It pressure cooks, sautes, cooks rice/grains, makes yogurt, acts as a slow cooker, and so much more. A nearly hands-off mac and cheese recipe is a great way to start!
Cheryl/Pook’s Pantry brings ups the cheese factor with her Cheese Stuffed Fundido Chicken. That gooey cheese pull is enough for me to try this recipe.
I’m back on Friday with my Chicken Burrito Bowls. These are always a hit in my house because everyone can customize their bowls with favorite toppings and come away with a healthy and satisfying meal.
Jenni swings by the weekend with her Chocolate Chess Pie. Chess pies are super simple to make, and this rich chocolate version is no exception. For a little Tex-Mex flair, add a dash of cinnamon and cayenne pepper for a little kick.
Erin brings a festive touch to the weekend with her Margarita Cupcakes with Salted Tequila Frosting. You heard me. Salted. Tequila. Frosting. These cupcakes taste like a margarita in cupcake form.
That’s it for the Weekly Menu Plan 107!
Tell me, Friends…what are you dying to try this week?
