Cinco de Mayo Fiesta Round-Up and Blog Hop

Simple guacamole recipe

With Cinco de Mayo just over a week away, I thought I’d throw a little Cinco de Mayo fiesta here on my blog. Although the holiday (which translates to the fifth of May) technically memorializes the victory of Mexicans over French at the 1862 Battle of Puebla, it has become by and large an American holiday to celebrate Mexican and Mexican-American heritage and culture. Whatever your reason for celebrating, I will never turn down an excuse to eat good Mexican food and honor their beautiful culture. Here are some of my favorite Mexican-inspired dishes from the archives, and I’d love for you to link up your Cinco de Mayo fare at the blog hop below!

    Major soft spot for Cinco de Mayo and Puebla. I did my study abroad there :). I added the Baked Chimis and Skinny Fajitas. All your recipes look so beautiful!

    Oh, how I look forward to browsing all the blogs and getting inspired by the dishes! I have been thoroughly smitten by Mexican food since we moved to southern California three years ago and I went to Yucatan in 2010!
    I am so glad I discovered your blog via Maureen and can’t wait to get to know you better through your writing:)
