  • 2 teaspoons cayenne powder
Cooking Directions
  1. Mix all seasonings together.

Molé Sauce
I have never made Molé sauce from scratch but it's definitely on my "to do" list.
Until then, my favorite brand of jarred Molé sauce is: Doña María

For a refreshing treat..
Try a Jarritos Mexican Soda.
Flavors are: Mango, Pineapple, Fruit Punch, Guava, Lime, Mandarin,
Strawberry, Tamarind, Grapefruit, Mexican Cola, Jamaica.

Any flavor will go well with your Cinco de Mayo Dinner.
