Celebrate Cinco de Mayo right on your iPad

rick bayless: mexican essentials appIf you’re still stumped on what to make for your Cinco de Mayo party (or Kentucky Derby celebration, perhaps), we’ve found the absolute coolest new app that will give you everything you need to make some of the most fabulous, festive recipes from one of America’s greatest chefs, all via your iPad.

Even better, it’s on sale right now.

The Rick Bayless: Mexican Essentials iPad app features a slew of this award-winning chef’s recipes, 35 to be exact, from Red Chile Pork Tamales to Slow-Cooked Achiote Pork, even his yummy guacamole recipe. There’s a shopping list aggregator (awesome!), but the best feature might be the 40 instructional videos that give you quick, simple inside tips and tricks, like how to roast a chile and how to chop cilantro.

Not like you’ll be professionally cooking at Frontera any time soon, but hey, making Potato-Chorizo Tacos at home tonight isn’t a bad alternative.

In honor of Cinco de Mayo today, you can snag this app for $2.99 right now. Totally worth it just for the guacamole recipe, if you ask me. -Kristen

You can purchase the Rick Bayless: Mexican Essentials app on iTunes.com. Happy Cinco de Mayo, mamas!
