Cinco de Mayo – Get your Latin Flavors On!

image_pdfimage_print

Today is Cinco de Mayo!  Some people think that this is the Mexican Independence day (sort of like our 4th of July), but it’s not.  Mexico celebrates the “Cry of Independence” on September 16 – celebrating the revolt of 1810 which ultimately freed them from the Spanish rule.  But where does May 5th fit in you ask?

Cinco de Mayo celebrates the Mexican Army’s victory over the French in 1862 during the Battle of Puebla.  Cinco de Mayo is a small holiday in Mexico (sort of like our Memorial day or President’s day), but has become quite a reason to celebrate in the US!!

So here are some dishes for you to try during this really fun holiday!

How about starting with Pork Tamales?  Not nearly as hard as you think to prepare!
