Just in time for Cinco De Mayo, this salsa can be altered with some of your favorite vegetables straight from your garden or local farmer’s market. We will be enjoying this salsa along with oven baked fajitas, followed by a viewing of The Three Amigos with Chevy Chase, Steve Martin and Martin Short. “One for each other and all for one!” See below for more quotes. This movie cracks me up more today than it ever did as a kid.

Rosita: “I was thinking later, you could kiss me on the veranda.” Dusty Bottoms: “Lips would be fine.”
Lucky Day: “Stop right there El Guapo or I’ll pump you so full of lead you’ll be using your dick for a pencil.”
Juanita: “Which one do you like?” Carmen: “I like the one who is not so smart.” Juanita: “Which one is that?”
Mr Flugelman: “Boys do you know what “nada” means?”
Dusty Bottoms: “Isn’t that a light chicken gravy?”
Lucky Day: “In a way, all of us has an El Guapo to face. For some, shyness might be their El Guapo. For others, a lack of an education might be their El Guapo. For us, El Guapo is a big dangerous man who wants to kill us. But as sure as my name is Lucky Day, the people of Santa Poco can conquer their own personal El Guapo, who also happens to be the actual El Guapo.”
