For Cinco de Mayo, I decided to do tacos. Kind of went overboard, but it only took half an hour to put everything together.
At the market, I looked at the packets of taco seasonings. I had all that stuff in the spice cabinet and decided to do it myself. Chili powder, onion salt, paprika or cayenne, salt and pepper to taste. I threw in some Lawry's Seasoned Salt for good measure. Just brown up the ground beef, add spices shortly before it's done, and you're good to go.
The rest of the fillings:
Shredded cheddar cheese
Guacamole (store-bought because avocados were $2 each)
Chopped Green Onions
It's great to have everything laid out on the table, so everyone can make exactly what they want. A selection of either soft flour tortillas or crunchy corn shells will round out the special treat.
