Happy Cinco De Mayo! It’s no surprise that I am not the best chef…I am the girl who dropped a raw chicken breast down the garbage disposal on accident last week, but this is one of my go-to recipes when it is my turn to cook. It’s truly so easy!!
This recipe is super simple with minimal ingredients and would be the perfect thing to celebrate Cinco De Mayo if you wanted to enjoy something other than tacos.
If I can do it, you can too!
