Cinco de Mayo!

Mexican Independence Day? Eh, no – that is actually in September.  Cinco de Mayo celebrates the Battle of Puebla where the Mexican Army defeated the French even though they were outmanned and out-equipped. Mexico actually had their Independence 50 years prior to 1862 when the battle was won. Nonetheless, it is definitely a celebration that is very well established in the United States and Mexico.

I love Mexican food. Spanish food. Spicy food. Food. HA and I’m so excited to bring you these beautiful dishes from truly talented food bloggers.
