The theme this month is Dystopian Halloween. What Halloween traditions survive a post-apocalyptic landscape will be up to the survivors. For some of us, Halloween is instilled in our soul. We’ll easily find a way to celebrate the dead. That’s what comes to mind when I found this awesome spooky art from Kellen Carranza.
Cinco de Mayo is coming up soon and I found the perfect recipe that works for both this festive occasion and Halloween at the same time! Two-fer! I present to you, Burrito Skulls!
Thanks to the good people over at Hungry Happenings, your dinner can be spicier than a summer day in the Arizona desert. Muy caliente! What makes is this recipe so fabulous is that the burrito filling is customizable to whatever you want! Don’t like onions? Don’t use them. Don’t like corn? Don’t use them. Black beans give you gas? Don’t use them. The trick is the homemade tortilla dough, which is a lot easier than it sounds.
