Ah, Cinco de Mayo. A day of fun, food, and plenty of margaritas. This year, as you plan your fiesta, don't skimp on the snacks. Mexico has a rich and delicious cultural heritage that spans the gamut from small savory bites to indulgent sweets. So, while you're mixing up a pitcher of your favorite margarita, spend some time in the kitchen loading up on savory skirt steak tacos, fresh from the ocean ceviche tostadas, smoky chicken flautas, and plenty of warm tortillas to serve alongside with chunky, rich fresh guacamole and spicy salsas.

Once upon a time, 420 (4:20 or 4/20) held special meaning for a select group of marijuana smoking insiders who were in on the toking. These days, however, with 18 states from Arizona to New Jersey, plus the District of Columbia, having legalized the use of medical marijuana, the definition of 420 is cult no more. Tomorrow, on April 20th (aka 4/20), there will be plenty of legit celebrations taking place from Atlantic to Pacific shores.

These bites of deliciousness are perfect for any sort of party, especially tailgates (or the Super Bowl!). They are my version of chicken wings, dreamed up with my colleague Alex Garcia from Food Network. Serve it with my Tamarind-Pasilla BBQ Sauce and you’re sure to have a crowd-pleaser.
