Cinco de Mayo en la Officina!

May 5, 2014 | Posted by Christine Sanchez

Any excuse to have Mexican food is fine by us! As I am sure you can imagine, on any given day at the Bobby Flay office, there is a lot going on. Our typical day includes quick lunches at our desk while working. Every once in a while, however, for holidays and special occasions like birthdays, we like to make lunch a little more special. After all, we have a great kitchen and we all love to cook!

Cinco de Mayo is no exception. The B-Team could talk about tacos all afternoon; we dream about a great margarita. Keeping it simple, (maybe a work lunch is not the place for a margarita), healthy (who wants to work feeling full) and always mindful of the money, we came up with a yummy Mexican themed lunch for all the great people we work with.

THE MENU

Chicken Adobo
Shredded Kale with Lime and Cotija
Crushed Avocado with Tomatillo
Cilantro Yogurt Crema
Jicama with Chile, Lime and Salt
Tomatillo Hot Sauce
Baked Tortilla Chips
Watermelon Agua Fresca
Mexican Wedding Cookies


Here's a look at our Cinco de Mayo spread with the Chicken Adobo front and center.
