Cinco de Mayo is coming in a few days. You deserve some great Mexican food and here are my personal favorites. All with easy to follow step by step photos.

Cinco de Mayo was a victory in battle over the French and is not the Mexican Independence Day which is September 16th. I’m sure our French friends will join us on the food side of the celebration and wish our Mexican neighbors a happy holiday.
Cinco de Mayo is one of my favorite food holidays. The food screams with wonderful flavor and everyday life. All for only a little work and cost. Plus unlike Thanksgiving, no need to spend all day cooking.
This year I’m picking my personal favorites, not by page views, not by comments. Just what I would cook for us.
My Top Mexican Recipe
This is one of my absolute favorites of all recipes on this site. I have done this at least a hundred time. Mostly for wonderful ground beef nachos but great on a salad or in a taco (dah).

Let’s all join together in wishing our neighbor to the south Happy Cinco de Mayo (AKA Victory Over the French) Day. I’m sure the French would agree at least on the food side.
