Cinco de Mayo Ideas

Cinco de Mayo is just around the corner.  For those of you who don't speak Spanish, like I do, it's on the fifth of May.  Aren't you glad I'm here to be your translator?  Apparently it's a "regional holiday" in Mexico primarily celebrated in one state.  Um, what?  Am I the only one shocked by the news that not all states of Mexico celebrate this holiday?  I don't know if I know any holidays in the U.S. only celebrated by part of the country.

I'm usually not thinking far enough ahead to post recipes before a holiday actually happens, but for this most important of all holidays (celebrated in only part of one country), I got my act together.  I haven't made too many Mexican recipes on the blog, but I have posted the classics.  Steak tacos are delicious, and taste authentic in a way the Old El Paso boxed tacos never will.  No Cinco de Mayo is complete without salsa and guacamole.  Cheesy chicken enchiladas are not to be missed either.  What are you guys cooking for Americans'-Excuse-to-Cook-Mexican-and-Drink-Coronas Day?


  1. Lee-Jackson-King Day, might be an example of a regional holiday in the US

  2. Ha. Please don't remind me of how embarrassing Virginia can be. :)
