About the recipe:

With this recipe we want to celebrate Cinco De Mayo, which is a Mexican holiday that celebrates the unlikely victory over French forces at the Battle of Puebla. We selected these products to give you a taste of the Mexican cuisine by creating this delicious rice salad that is made with products that you can find at Shubie’s. The tortilla chips and the salsa are going to be a great appetizer and the rice salad will have the contrast between sweet and sour from the meat and the imported hot sauce from Mexico will give that spicy taste to your entrée.

We selected this products for you because we think that they perfectly match together but you are welcome to choose other ones.
