[dropcap custom_class=”normal”] I [/dropcap]t is a margarita day. That is what I say when my job is crazy. In the medical field you never say it is a good day or bad day, if you do, it curses you. So when the next shift would come in and they ask, “How was today?” I say it is a margarita day, they knew it wasn’t good.
How did I come up with the saying? Well, I love margaritas. I love the lime and salt concoction. Yes, Margaritaville is one my all-time favorite songs, yes I am a Jimmy Buffet fan.
Bacon Taco Dip Recipe
What does a margarita have to do with a bacon taco dip? Plenty actually. Cinco de Mayo is coming up very quickly. The 5th of May is a day of celebration, we in the US drink margaritas and have Mexican food on that day.
The true meaning of Cinco de Mayo is also called El Día de la Batalla de Puebla. Which commemorates the Mexican army’s unlikely victory over French forces at the Battle of Puebla on May 5, 1862. So, let’s celebrate.
I did a little spin on a taco dip recipe a friend of my mom would make for potlucks. I found the original recipe she gave me in a little box of recipes I had received when I got married years ago. I recently have been going through that box and there are so many wonderful recipes in there, including this taco dip.,
I decided I could play with and make it my own. This bacon taco dip is a good example of that. I decided to add the bacon because, well everything tastes better with it. The bacon really did make this taco dip burst with flavor, so the bacon taco dip was born.
