I was thinking of doing something for Cinco de Mayo, just to show a different tradition for the kids. Anyone have any special recipes? 

I did find these churro cookies in my searching, and thought I'd share because they look delicious!

The Piñata cookies look too cute! I am going to make taco pie...I use Spanish rice as the 'crust' (I buy Rice a roni because I am lazy but you could make from scratch). I put that in a pie plate. Then I brown hamburg, onions, peppers, and salsa adding garlic powder and chili powder, salt and pepper and layer that on top of the rice. (I don't measure spices much but i go heavy on pepper and light on salt, and use a teaspoon or less of spices, less if I am using multiple spices). I cover that with tomato slices and I sprinkle on a 'taco cheese' or 'Mexican' blend of shredded cheese and bake at 350 for about 30 minutes. Served with a simple salad, it is a pretty quick meal..you can cook the rice and the meat part the day before and just bake before serving. You could also use corn chips for the crust...the rice seems healthier but I might be deluding myself.
