Cisco manual for enable and use HSRP on 5000 series nexus.

What is important.
If you want one of switches to have priority over other - higher number for priority  is preferred - and will be active.
In case that you want same switch be preferred when it comes back online you need to set preempt (so it can be active). Otherwise first router to boot up will be active.
Strongly is advised that you don't allow preemption too soon after switch get back to standby group: reason - maybe switch is constantly reboots, interfaces flapping etc...

A basic HSRP config looks something like this:

feature hsrp
interface vlan 10
 hsrp 10
 ip 192.168.10.3
 priority 200
 preempt delay min 60
