Happy Cinco de Mayo! It's almost the 5th of May, and it's time to live it up! Cinco de Mayo isn't Mexican Independence Day; it's actually an unofficial holiday that celebrates the Mexican victory over the French at the Battle of Puebla. While Cinco de Mayo has limited significance nationwide in Mexico, the date is heavily observed in the United States. How is it observed, exactly? Oh, just with eating, drinking, and dancing in the streets until all hours.
Here are some of our favorites:
- Pickled Nopales Salad 
- Crispy Chick'n Taquitos 
- Easy Empanadas 
- Baha Tofu Tacos with Cilantro Cole Slaw 
- Simple Avocado Enchiladas 
- Baked Chimichangas 
- Fabulous Fruit Flan 
Looking for me on Sunday night? I'll be the crazy-looking red-head with a margarita in a sippy cup and a tray of taquitos. Viva México!
