Cinco de Mayo (Spanish for “fifth of May”) is a date best recognized in the United States as a time to celebrate the culture of Mexican-Americans. To celebrate, special events are planned with Mexican music, food, and dancing. Even though it is a holiday that commemorates the Mexican army’s victory over the French forces at the Battle of Puebla on May 5, 1862, it is a holiday mainly celebrated in the state of Puebla and in the United States.
One of the best parts of Cinco de Mayo is the fabulous food and drink! Instead of a cookbook today, I would like to give you something a little different.
