Happy Cinco de Mayo! If you are looking for some ideas for Mexican food tonight, you've come to the right place.

It was fun to see the crockpots lined up on the countertop, and crockpotting is a terribly easy way to entertain. I was out of the kitchen hours and hours before party time, and was able to focus my attention on other things.
and the phone.
