Everyone is a little Mexican on Cinco de Mayo ("Fifth of May")! This make-ahead casual menu gives your guests a taste of Mexico, and gives you time for margaritas. Olé!
Ideal as a make-ahead item, this pork is braised, shredded, sauced and ready to be stuffed into taco shells.

Chili–spiked cornmeal gives a crispy crust to catfish. Another firm-fleshed white fish, such as tilapia, can be used.
Rajas, which means slice in Spanish, is a traditional Mexican mixture of sauteed peppers and onions.
Flecked with herbs and seasoned with a touch of cayenne, this is so much better than plain sour cream.
For less heat, seed the jalapenos before adding to the onions.
This favourite Mexican salsa is a topping for tacos, salads and nachos. Use diced seeded plum tomatoes, if desired.
Make this perennial favourite with white or yellow tequila as desired.
This light, tangy dessert flavoured with tequila and lime makes a refreshingly special finish to any festive meal. For that extra flourish, serve the mousse garnished with finely grated lime rind in sugared margarita or martini glasses.
