It’s Cinco de Mayo (May the 5th) on Thursday. Time for fun and a festive, Mexican feast! Contrary to popular belief, Cinco de Mayo is not Mexican Independence Day. It commemorates a battle between the Mexicans and French in 1862. Independence Day or not, inco de Mayo has captured the hearts and stomachs of most of America. What about you? Are you ready for some south of the border treats?
Here are a few ideas!
The Main Event:
If you have a hankering for chili try my Chili Con Carne. Chili not your thing? How about
Pork Mole. I won’t verify its authenticity but it is full of flavor and delicious. Complete the either one of these cozy stews with with some steamed rice and crunchy Jicama Slaw.
Have a fun and festive evening! Bon appétit!
