71. Barrington EATS: Make the Most of Your Cinco de Mayo

 With Cinco de Mayo right around the corner, we have a recipe duo to get you in the mood. Nothing says “fiesta” like fabulous food made with less money and time spent in the kitchen.

Yes, there is a lot to be said for cooking once and eating twice, especially when the second meal is as good as the first. And I can’t believe I’m still talking about soup in April, but this Spring, it’s unfortunately still on the menu. I’ve thrown in a mango margarita recipe to warm you up as well.

Using leftover fajitas to make tortilla soup is rewarding in the areas of both effort and taste. Make two great meals this week with the effort of one with Chicken Fajitas and Tortilla Soup. The same recipes can be made with steak by substituting 16 ounces of strip or flank steak for the chicken.
Flavorful chicken fajitas are marinated in delicious Mexican seasonings.

Even more delicious is that the only other things you need to add besides a rich broth are the leftover rice and beans detailed in this recipe. Quick and easy food never tasted so satisfying.

While at both venues I demonstrated and sampled salads that included Orzo Salad, Chick Pea Mango Salad, Carrot Basil and Feta Salad, Beet and Goat Cheese Salad, Crunchy Green Bean Salad and others that people told me were their absolute favorites, but the salad that people always came back to tell me they made… over and over and over again… was the Black Bean Asparagus. No surprise as it is delicious, looks pretty, is virtually fat-free and goes with just about anything!…
