Celebrating Cinco de Mayo


In the United States, Cinco de Mayo celebrates Mexican heritage and pride. Celebrating Cinco de Mayo is fun because it allows you to cook all your favorite Mexican specialties and mix up some special margaritas. Contrary to popular belief, Cinco de Mayo is not Mexican Independence Day (that's on Sept. 16th), instead it marks the Mexican army's unlikely victory over French forces in 1862.

This year, Cinco de Mayo falls on a Saturday, so it'll be even easier to whip up some tasty treats and have fun with family and friends. For this party we've decided to focus on our all-time favorite Mexican dishes from start to finish- a refreshing margarita, expertly made chips and guacamole, flavorful enchiladas and finally a tres leches cake.
