Lucky for me, Spiro is a genius in the kitchen and one of his specialties is a margarita. I’m convinced no one makes a better margarita than he does, so we’ll naturally be pairing them with our Cinco de Mayo mini burritos on Friday. His signature drink can be spiced up with jalapenos but they can be left out if your palate is sensitive (I’m partial to the spicy version!). We never realized it before, but folding a burrito is a real art, and it took us several tries to get it just right! This video was super helpful in helping us nail the technique. How is your crew celebrating Cinco de Mayo?
