Happy Cinco de Mayo!


May 5, 2011 by Flora Dawn

It’s the fifth of May, so Happy Cinco de Mayo! There seems to be a common misconception that Cinco de Mayo is Mexico’s Independence Day, but that is September 16. Cinco de Mayo actually commemorates the Mexican victory over the French army at the Battle of Puebla in 1862.

It is my understanding that Cinco de Mayo is celebrated only regionally in Mexico, however, it is a big holiday in America and an opportunity to celebrate Mexican culture, especially the food and music.

So I thought it would be fitting to mention a few of our favorite Mexican-inspired recipes.

Baked Tortilla Chips

Tomatillo Salsa

homemade corn tortillas

Tequila Chicken & Wild Rice

Even if we can’t be on a beautiful Mexican beach today, sipping some fruity drink watching the waves, we can at least make ourselves some great chips and salsa. Hope you have a fun and flavorful Cinco de Mayo!

    It’s going to be homemade chicken taquitos and salsa here tonight for Cinco de Mayo.
    I love the tortilla press! Wish I could find a good one locally.thanks for the heads up on not buying plastic- I’m guessing I will probably have to order one online 🙂
