    Any Cinco de Mayo celebration would be incomplete without delectable food that friends and families alike can share as part of their gatherings and celebrations.  To celebrate the release of the animated film Despicable Me 2, which debuts in theaters on July 3, 2013, Chef Isa Souza has created the “Cinco de Minion” salsa recipe.

“Cinco de Minion” salsa recipe:


3 yellow bell peppers (2 chopped and reserve the 3rd to serve)

1 small onion, chopped

2 garlic cloves, diced

2 tablespoons of sour cream

2 teaspoons of salt

3 tablespoons of olive oil

½ teaspoon of ground cumin

½ teaspoon of ground black pepper


Heat a medium-sized pan at high temperature.  Add the olive oil, followed by the garlic and onion, stirring constantly.

Add yellow bell pepper. Reduce the temperature and season with salt, pepper and cumin. Mix well and let it cook for about 15 minutes on low heat. Stir constantly.

When the yellow bell pepper is well cooked, remove from heat.

Add the sour cream. Pour all into a blender and mix. It will form a thick sauce.

Cut the top of the reserved pepper to serve as a container for the salsa . Remove all seeds.  Pour the salsa in the yellow bell pepper and use the top of the pepper to decorate.

    Don’t wait any longer!  Invite all of your friends and family over this weekend to sample this delicious and original recipe.  I’m sure they will all love it and it will be the perfect addition to any of your holiday celebrations.
