Recipe News: Celebrate Cinco de Mayo with Tasty Mexican-American Recipes

"Cinco de Mayo, the 5th of May, observes the Mexican army's surprising victory over the French at the Battle of Puebla on May 5, 1862. According to Wikipedia: “The Battle of Puebla was important for at least two reasons: First, although considerably outnumbered, the Mexicans defeated a much better-equipped French army. Second, it was significant because since the Battle of Puebla no country in the Americas has been invaded by an army from another continent.”

Except for a national day off work, Cinco de Mayo has had minimal significance as a Mexican holiday beyond the region of Puebla, but it is widely observed in the United States and in other parts of the world as a festive celebration of Mexican heritage and pride. The festivities have come to recognize a significant segment of diversity in our country."

Includes recipe for:

  • Tomatillo Shrimp Enchiladas

  • Frozen Margarita Pie
