May

Cinco de Mayo commemorates a battle in 1862 in which only a few thousand Mexican soldiers managed to defeat more than twice their numbers in invading French troops. As a symbol of national pride for many Mexican Americans, Cinco de Mayo offers a chance to share some Mexican culture with your family.

For some cute craft ideas, along with some delicious Mexican food recipes, check out the links below:

  1. Hey there, long time lurker here with my first comment! My only daughter is getting married to her lovely mexican boyfriend soon, and I’m tasked with preparing the wedding party! I thought enchiladas would be a nice snack, so trying to find some good enchilada recipes. What do you think? Any other ideas?? Anyway, thanks for your hard work as ever… I’ll try to comment a little more on future posts.
