Happy Cinco!

Last year on Cinco de Mayo we headed to a local Mexican restaurant and drank far too much tequila and did far too many jello shots. This year we're celebrating all week....but much more low key every day!

Today I enjoyed a lovely Cinco de Mayo lunch - a seven layer wrap. Well, 8 if you count the chicken. And you should! I made some seven layer dip to snack on this week and thought it'd be a perfect lunch all wrapped up in a tortilla. I felt so festive as I sat at my desk and munched on it. Of course, it did leave me wanting a margarita - but there's always tomorrow!

Seven (Eight) Layer Wrap
Start with a flour tortilla. (We won't count this as a layer, because I'm already pushing it with the chicken)
1) Spread refried beans over tortilla.
2) Mix sour cream with taco seasoning, spread this on top of the beans.
3) Sprinkle shredded cheddar over sour cream mixture.
4) Spread guacamole over cheese
5) Chop up tomato and sprinkle over guacamole
6) Slice a green onion and sprinkle over tomato
7) Sprinkle sliced black olives over green onion
8) Layer some chicken over olives and wrap her up!


  1. 7 layer dip is my fave, i could eat a whole tray of it.

  2. I'm a cinco slacker. I didn't celebrate with food or drink. I'll have to make up for it next year.

  3. ooh, i like that idea of celebrating all week! and my poor turkey tacos from last night pale in comparison to your wrap :(

  4. mmmmmmmm! happy (belated) cinco de mayo to you too!

  5. mmmmmmmm! happy (belated) cinco de mayo to you too!

  6. Yum, that looks fab! I missed out this year. I may have to stop by a Mexican eateria for lunch to make up for it. Mmm, you bad influence, you.

  7. This sounds like a lot of fun to put together and eat!
