Gimme a holiday and I’ll eat for it! We started celebrating a few years back with a couple of tacos and churros. Today, I wondered why? Here’s the history of Cinco De Mayo from the source. http://www.mexonline.com/cinco-de-mayo.htm
“The history 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. It is the primary regional holiday in the Mexican state capital city of Puebla and throughout the state of Puebla, with some limited recognition in other parts of Mexico, and especially in U.S. cities with a significant Mexican population. It is not, as many people think, Mexico’s Independence Day which is actually September 16.”
So, a little history to go along with your Mexician Fest! Oh, try this recipe. It’s wonderful! Adios!
