Derby Day/Cinco de Mayo

jav308 | Apr 16, 2012 08:09 AM

So, the Kentucky Derby happens to fall on Cinco de Mayo this year. Having a Mexican food loving boyfriend from Louisville, I decided to have a Derby party with "Mexi-tucky" themed food.

I have some ideas already, such as a 7-layer dip with beer cheese, country ham quesadillas, barbecue pork or chicken tacos with blue cheese cole slaw, etc. For drinks, I was planning on doing mint juleps and margaritas, though I may just stick with mint juleps because doing both will get expensive.

Anyone else have ideas? Clearly, authenticity isn't a huge concern of mine, it's more about fun and delicious party snacks. No dietary restrictions, though budget is a factor.
