Recipes for Cinco de Mayo

Ok, ok, I caved, just like I said I wouldn’t. Whatever. I’m a Mexican food addict and have so many delicious Mexican recipes that would be perfect for your Cinco de Mayo celebration!

But first, the Spanish teacher in me needs to give you a brief history lesson on Cinco de Mayo. It is not, as many people think, Mexican Independence Day. That’s September 16th. Cinco de Mayo (the 5th of May, not exactly a creative holiday name) is the celebration of the victory of the small Mexican army over the giant French army in the battle at Puebla during the Mexican Revolutionary War. This battle is often considered “the beginning of the end” of the Mexican Revolutionary War, hence the celebration.

There. Don’t you feel smarter? Now, onto the food:
