In honor of the up-and-coming Cinco de Mayo holiday, we’ve come up with two tantalizing cannabis-infused recipes for your fiesta festivities! Utilizing Cannabutter and THC oil, our foolproof recipes for ganja guacamole and toking tacos will make the perfect dishes for your Cinco de Mayo gathering – ole!
This Ganja Guacamole recipe serves about 8-10 party patrons!
- 4 ripe avocados
- 1 cucumber, peeled with seeds removed, diced
- ½ cup scallions, white and green parts, chopped
- 2 garlic cloves, minced
- ½ cup THC oil
- 1 jalapeno, chopped
- ½ cup cilantro, firmly packed
- Juice of 2 limes
- 1 teaspoon of salt
Begin by combining all ingredients above in a food processor and blend until the texture is completely smooth. If you’re in the spirit of keeping things festive, pick up a molcajete (guacamole bowl) and use the pestle for mixing the dip. The instructions for making cannabis oil are relatively simple and involve only extra virgin olive oil or canola oil and one ounce of finely ground quality marijuana. For highest level of efficacy, use all guacamole made within the same day. Also make sure to use one of the avocado pits in the serving bowl as it will work to keep the guacamole fresher longer and will prevent any premature browning. Pick up a bag of your favorite tortilla chips and enjoy!
Here’s a totally comprehensive toking tacos recipe that’s sure to impress all who try it!
This is what you’ll need to get started:
- 1 lb of ground beef
- 1 small red onion, minced
- 2 garlic cloves, crushed/minced
- 1 pouch of taco seasoning
- 1 small can of tomato paste
- 2/4 lb of cannabutter (or ¼ cup of cannaoil)
In a medium to large sized sauce pan over a medium to high heat, place the cannabutter in the pan before the temperature rises too quickly. Allow the cannabutter to melt as the heat intensifies. If you’re using cannaoil, pour it in to the pan once it becomes moderately hot. Then add the onions into the pan and sauté them for a short period of time (or until they begin to look translucent). Next comes the ground beef, which you’ll add and sauté until it is mostly cooked. Make sure to periodically break up the ground beef in the pan to ensure its taco-fitting size. Next you’ll add the seasonings, the tomato paste and the crushed garlic into the pan. Stir everything together and let the meat simmer for ten to fifteen minutes, allowing the flavors to meld together and ensuring that the meat is fully cooked. That’s it! Pick up a pack of hard or soft shelled tacos, add some lettuce, tomato and shredded cheese and you’ve got yourself a feast! Of course, now you’ve got the option of adding your delicious cannameat into just about any recipe your heart desires. Sloppy joes? You bet.
