Cinco De Mayo is approaching soon, and what better way to get into the fiesta mode, then by passing along FREE CINCO DE MAYO PRINTABLES
Everyone needs a little salsa in their life – why not pack a fiesta-to-go and celebrate it picnic style!
Use these Freebies, and dress up a chips & salsa snack pack and take to the park! Need to bring a party treat to school – this is a perfect festive snack the kids will love!
(can print on cardstock, sticker paper, photo paper, and more)!
Cut logos out with scissors for square shapes, or 2″ craft punches for circles or scallops
Seal bags (I used tape) and containers to dress up your chips & salsa.
*Tip: Nashville Wraps have great pricing for clear cello bags, and go to a local take-out restaurant and ask for the cups if you can’t resource cups from restaurant supply stores. (Doesn’t hurt to ask)!
I used a 2″ scallop craft punch for the bag and 2″ circle craft punch for the salsa.
Use these party logos on a sack lunch, or tie to a margarita glass… put them on toothpicks and stick in your favorite Mexican appetizer!
I love fresh salsa and thought I would share my home-made recipe:
ripe tomatoes – a large handful – diced
1 green pepper – diced
1 red pepper – diced
1 jalapeno pepper – diced (be careful not to touch the seeds, and then touch your eye – it will burn!) – for extra hot, add some crushed red pepper flakes
2-3 limes – squeezed in bowl
a bunch of fresh chopped cilantro
1 garlic clove – minced or pressed
olive oil – a couple swirls
salt, pepper, garlic salt
Mix all ingredients together – use salt/pepper/garlic salt to taste.
This is not an exact science…. but it is a wonderful blend of hot, sweet & salty.
This is also a great recipe for those who do not like onions (like myself)!!!
