Cinco de Mayo Dinner for Two

Chorizo con Huevos for Mark's Cinco de Mayo dinner

Inspired by our favorite Mexican restaurant Las Palmas. I recreated this dish and added my own style.

2 Mexican chorizos (removed from casing)
1/2 onion diced
1/2 tsp black pepper
2 eggs (beaten)

Brown diced onion and add chorizo using medium heat. Cook until the chorizo is well done and slighty crispy. Push meat to the side of the pan and add beaten eggs. Let it sit in the heat and then stir eggs with the meat. Remove from the pan and plate.

In a flat grill pan warm flour tortillas for a few minutes. Add warmed tortillas to your plate and garnish with sour cream. Top with fresh cilantro.

Shrimp Chipotle Quesadilla my dinner for Cinco de Mayo

This dish is super easy to make. I can't eat the same dish as Mark so I made my own.

10 - 15 peeled shrimp (deveined)
1/2 onion diced
1/2 teaspoon chipotle in adobo sauce
1 teaspoon Mexican seasoning (I purchased a giant container at Costco - so worth it)
pinch of salt & pepper

2 flour tortillas
1/2 cup Mexican cheese

Saute onions and add shrimp. Cook till opaque then add seasoning.

In a flat grill pan spray with butter then warm on low heat. Place flour tortillas add some shredded Mexican cheese, top with shrimp (be generous) and top with more cheese. Top with another flour tortilla and gently flip and cook the other side.

Slice and serve with remaining shrimp. Add some sour cream topped with fresh cilantro.
