Cinco de Mayo Mexican Recipes
Cooking Mexican dishes and food is not difficult at all.
You just need a few basic ingredients in your kitchen and pantry.
Then you can whip up a pretty simple Mexican treat in no time. I am talking about ingredients such as chicken, bell peppers, jalapeños, lime and lemon. Also things like sweet corn, avocados, rice and black beans. And cassava, yuka, prawns, cumin, fresh cilantro and mint.
Can you easily find these ingredients around where you live?
Mexican cuisine is much more than the chicken mole and guacamole.
Do you like raw fish, tequila, red onion and tacos?
And how about cheddar cheese, sour cream, sweet potatoes and chipotle then?
Because then you will love Mexican food. I am sure that you can find a bunch of these basic ingredients practically everywhere.

What is Cinco de Mayo all about actually?
Cinco de Mayo, well that is Spanish for May 5.
But you probably knew that already, right.
That is an easy one! But do you know what the historical background behind this Mexican holiday really is? Allow me to quote straight from Wikipedia, because it is “the day to commemorate the Mexican Army’s unlikely victory over French forces. At the Battle of Puebla on May 5, 1862, under the leadership of General Zaragoza.”
Well that sounds like enough reason to me for a great food party, right!
Cinco de Mayo is not only popular in Mexico. Also in the US.
