Celebrate Cinco de Mayo by putting a twist on some authentic Mexican foods!
These Fun Fiesta Foods will spice up your party night with your amigos.
Cinco de Mayo or "Fifth of May" commemorates the victory of the Mexican militia over the French army in the Battle of Puebla in 1862.
Although Cinco de Mayo is a national holiday in Mexico, it is mainly observed in the Mexican state of Puebla and in the United States where festivities surrounding this holiday began when word of the victory spread to Mexican miners in California.
