CINCO DE MAYO RECIPE ROUND UP
Cinco de Mayo is a date observed to commemorate the Mexican Army's tremendous victory over the French Empire at the Battle of Puebla. Cinco de Mayo has since taken root here in America and is a favorite holiday celebrated by many - even those not of Mexican descent. The recipes below are not true, authentic Mexican recipes. Some are Tex-Mex inspired recipes and some are Mexican inspired recipes but none are truly authentic. These are my American white girl versions of some of our favorites. For true, authentic Mexican recipes, I encourage you to visit Mely over at MEXICO IN MY KITCHEN.
