Cinco de Mayo simply means May the 5th. In Mexico on this date they celebrate a military victory against France in the fight for independence.
We were invited to celebrate Circo de Mayo by Discovery, who sent us some delicious goodies to enjoy.
We received The Perfect Fajita Kit, Garlic and Herb Soured Cream and a jar of Cajun Season and Sauce.
I decided to use the Fajita Kit for our family celebration. I love fajitas, they make for a really sociable meal and are great for small children, Seb adores them!
The kit made making them really simple. I seasoned some diced chicken breast with the sachet included in the kit, then i cooked the chicken in a very hot pan along with peppers and onion and then filled the tortillas(also in the kit) before serving with some homemade garlic and herb potato wedges in a bowl for everyone to share. The salsa from the kit went into a dish and was lovely to dunk our wedges into.
The garlic and herb soured cream was squirted onto our fajitas and went down really well, you know your onto a good thing if a toddler enjoys it as we all know how particular they can be! I like that it can be used in lots of dishes and i think it'll be lovely as a dip too.
Even Alex joined in with our meal, enjoying his first ever tortilla.
I'm really looking forward to trying out the Cajun Chicken sauce too, I'm going to serve it with rice and I'm sure it'll be a hit.
Take a look at the Discovery website for all kinds of delicious recipes and product information.
