In honor of Cinco de Mayo (this week!) we’re sharing 50 Favorite Cinco de Mayo food recipes.
Cinco de Mayo (Spanish for “fifth of May”) is a holiday celebrated in the United States and primarily limited to the state of Puebla in Mexico. The holiday commemorates the Mexican army’s unlikely victory over French forces at the Battle of Puebla on May 5, 1862. -Wikipedia
Fun Fact: My brother actually served his mission in Puebla, Mexico not too long ago!
Mexican food is my love language. So any holiday that encourages eating an insane amount of tacos and guacamole is alright by me!
Growing up in Southern California, we always had a Cinco de Mayo celebration at school, but I haven’t heard too much fuss over the holiday since moving to Arizona. Do you guys celebrate it? Either way, I’m still planning on having a little fun with my kids and I think this is a perfect reason to have a Mexican feast for dinner! Take a look at over 50 delicious Mexican recipes you’ll have to try!
