Cinco de Mayo is almost here!

Cinco de Mayo is, according to Wikipedia, ". . . a regional holiday in Mexico, primarily celebrated in the state of Puebla, with some limited recognition in other parts of Mexico. The holiday commemorates the Mexican army's unlikely defeat of French forces at the Battle of Puebla . . ." (GEEZ, did the French win ANY military battle??)

But in the USA, Cinco de Mayo is quickly becoming the Mexican equivalent of St. Patrick's Day. Food, drink, and celebrations galore!

And since I got called-out about my burrito review on St. Patricks day -- something which I won't do again (I guess I should've reviewed green beer and corned beef). I think it'd be only appropriate to celebrate Cinco de Mayo with a week of Mexican food and beverage reviews.

Coming up later today -- Chili Relleno recipe for Recipe Friday!
