Cinco de Mayo Fiesta Round-Up and Blog HopPosted on Apr 27, 2012 | 56 comments
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!
A simple Guacamole recipe to start any party off right
A flavorful Chicken Tortilla Soup that’s perfect any time of year
Vegan Tofu Tacos that will satisfy even the most stalwart meat eaters
And ooey-gooey turkey enchiladas are always a crowd-pleaser!
