Cinco de Mayo
Cinco de Mayo, Spanish for “Fifth of May”, is also known as the Anniversary of the Battle of Puebla. It is a national holiday in Mexico in honor of a military victory in 1862 over the French forces of Napoleon III. Cinco de Mayo has become a celebration of Mexican culture and heritage, especially in areas with large Mexican-American populations. Cinco de Mayo is celebrated with parades, mariachi music and street festivals.
Here, at B&M Catering, we’ll use any excuse for Fiesta!
Today, we suggest you try making these two different types of guacamole outlined by our friend, Tricia in Friends, Food Family: Cinco de Mayo Throwdown – Killer Guacamole VS Tequila Lime Guacamole.
Our customers often enjoy our own “South of the Border“ menu which includes:
- Vegetarian or meat chili
- Taco bar
- Mexicali vegetable medley
- Spanish rice
Might as well mix up some margaritas and chill the Dos Equis.
Check out B&M Catering’s Cinco de Mayo – Fiesta Pinterest Page where we have collected some really great fiesta additions. Our favorites include the Cinco de Mayo strawberries: ripe strawberries dipped in white chocolage and then dipped in green sugar to represent the colors of the Mexican flag. Not that we are that we are big on arts and crafts here in the kitchen, but we are aslo intrigued by the Papel Picado Banners. The tequila jello shots served in a slice of lime look like lots of fun. Check out those and more fun Fiesta ideas.
¡ Que todos tengan una fiesta !
