Cinco de Mayo Roundup

I always thought Cinco de Mayo was a made up holiday that Americans used as an excuse to overload on chips & queso.

Turns out, it’s just a misunderstood holiday. Cinco De Mayo is not Mexico’s Independence Day (which, amigos, is September 16) – but the day that Mexican citizens (particularly those in Puebla) commemorate the Mexican army’s unlikely victory over French forces at the Battle of Puebla on May 5, 1862.

I feel great about celebrating this victory along with our neighbors down south – especially if it means enjoying my favorite food. To help spread the holiday spirit, I thought I’d share a few of my favorite salsa recipes:

Bomb-Diggity Bacon Salsa

Salsa Verde

Black Bean, Corn, & Avocado Salsa

There is so, so much more to Mexican food than salsa, though. If you want to get the full experience, you may want to try a few of my other favorites:

Aguas Frescas

Carnitas

Pomegranate Guacamole

Queso Fundido

Tres Leches

Alright mis amigos… enjoy! (Don’t get too loco.)
