Oh, how I love special days that allow me to focus on food! Beef, in particular.
As you know, I’m kind of obsessed.
So, the fact that Cinco de Mayo is coming up gives me great joy. I can dream up all kinds of beefy delights for that day.
AND, it’s my son’s birthday! We always get to celebrate doubly in spicy style!
The fifth of May, 1862, is when the Mexican army was victorious over the French in the Battle of Puebla and now it’s become a day to celebrate Mexican heritage and pride.
So in honor of Cinco de Mayo I give you cinco recipes you can use to celebrate, too!
TRES: Carne asada. A classic.
