Q: What if I oversleep and wake up on the 31st and realize I haven’t ordered yet?
A: Too bad.
Q: What if I develop amnesia and forget about the offer?
A: See above.

Why are we being so ridiculously generous? Trust us, it hurts. But it’s our way of celebrating Cinco de Mayo. As Wikipedia kindly tell us, Cinco de Mayo is Spanish for the fifth of May (thanks for that guys). It commemorates the Mexican army’s 1862 victory over the French (those darn French). Now it means big time party.

And parties mean food. I’ll leave the menu up to you but why not try something different like a Mole? It’s a traditional Mexican dish and we make it easy with our Southwestern Mole mix. It will taste like you’ve slaved over a hot stove for days but you didn’t. We like that kind of thing. Or if the weather looks good, throw some steaks on the BBQ – a little Abiquiu Steak Marinade adds some extra zing.

But whatever you do, make sure you’ve got some nibbles on hand. There is nothing worse than a hungry crowd. They get restless and they get mean. We’ll be whipping up a batch of our Spicy Garbanzo Beans. They’re very easy to make (a plus when you’ve got a crowd) plus they go down a treat with a beer or margarita (or three).

So party on and don’t forge to type in those five magic letters — CINCO — to get your 25% off OKAY?

Spicy Garbanzo Beans

Makes enough for me if I’ve had a bad day or 4-6 more civilized people.

2 ½ Tbsp olive oil
14.5 oz can of garbanzo beans
1 tsp sea salt
1 tsp ground cumin
1 tsp ground green chile

Place the beans in a colander, rinse with cold water and drain. Heat up the olive oil in a large frying pan until hot but not smoking. Add the garbanzo beans – careful because they may spit. Cook over high heat until the beans are crisp and crunchy – this will take about 10 minutes depending on the heat of your stove.

The beans will shrink and change in color from a light creamy color to a deeper golden brown. Try one – it should be crispy on the outside and slightly yielding inside. Remove from heat, add the spices and put back on the stove for another minute or two to toast the spices. Add a sprinkle of sea salt flakes if you like and serve hot or at room temperature.
