I love Mexican food, so Cinco de Mayo is a food holiday to me and I think many of us Gringos. Contrary to common believe, it is not Mexico Independence Day (which is September 16th) but according to Mexonline “The holiday of Cinco De Mayo, The 5th Of May, commemorates the victory of the Mexican militia over the French army at The Battle Of Puebla in 1862.” Ok, so I learned something.
Now on to the food. This is a top five of my Mexican recipes. Just my choice, I’m not looking at page views nor anything else. Reverse order.
Special Mention: Kick Tale Taco Soup
I don’t include it only because it is “made up” Mexican but a great crock pot recipe.
Happy victory over the French day… I’m sure they have forgiven the defeat considering the wonderful eats…
