Cinco de Mayo is coming up fast!

I love this time of year as we always see some fantastic deals to help us create amazing meals. You guys know that Mexican foods and flavors are my all time favorite! As you’d imagine, I take the opportunity to grab everything I need to serve up tasty meals to help us enjoy a fiesta night at home!

Tacos are always a hit at my house and we usually do some form of Taco Tuesday each week. Cinco de Mayo falls on a Saturday this year so I’ll shake things up and serve up these Beef Beer Tacos for my family and friends who will be stopping by!

Since we’ll be entertaining, this recipe is the perfect way to serve up great taste that everyone will love AND offers a complete meal solution that’s easy to prepare. I plan on doubling the recipe which will mean plenty of tacos for everyone to enjoy as well as lots of great tasting Dos Equis beer for the adults.

Whether you have a big shindig planned or just a special meal planned for your family, grab everything you need for a tasty Fresh Fiesta at Publix. Pick up all your Cinco de Mayo party needs at a great price when you shop at Publix!

  • 1 lb lean (at least 80%) ground beef

  • 1 Avocados from Mexico™, pitted, peeled and diced
  • 3/4 cup (from 16-oz container) Breakstone’s™ sour cream

  1. In 10-inch nonstick skillet, cook beef over medium heat 8 to 9 minutes, stirring occasionally, until brown; drain.

[i]To dice avocado, cut in half and remove pit. Using large spoon, scoop flesh from skin. Place one half avocado cut side down on cutting board. Make two horizontal cuts to make three planks, then cut lengthwise into strips. Turn 90 degrees, and cut again.
