I need to make a dish for my Spanish class for Cinco de Mayo. If any of you know a dish (preferably not desert) that doesn't have too many odd/expensive ingredients and is easy to bring to school, that'd be great. The more authentic, the better. I can chill and or warm up the dish once I reach the school. Thanks! Xxx

This has got to be the tastiest and the most moist cornbread I have ever made. It is the most requested thing I cook, so I am sharing it. Don't let the ingredients fool you. It's unbelievable.

We love this cornbread. Guacamole or chips and salsa would be good too

Flavorful refried beans seasoned with garlic, jalapeno, and cumin are simple to make when cooked in a slow cooker.

This is a really tasty pinto beans recipe made in the slow cooker. This recipe is great to serve along with enchiladas or to take to a barbecue or potluck.

read reviews to customize, such as broth instead of beer, etc.

Anchovy fillets are a surprisingly delicious addition to the spicy yogurt dressing in this mixed green salad with black beans, grape tomatoes, and fresh corn.

My daughter made this and it was well received. We didn't use the anise seeds.

I got this recipe from my friends mom who owns a Mexican Bakery. When they made these one day for my family they loved them - even my brother who is sooo picky. Now they ask for them all the time. Although they are a little time consuming it is well worth it at the end!
