What many people do not know is that Cinco de Mayo has barely any significance in Mexico, yet observed nationwide mainly in the US in celebration of Mexican heritage in pride.
On May 5, 1862, the Mexican army defeated the French as they attempted to intervene Mexico at the Battle of Peubla on this date. The day was later created as an American Civil War holiday by the Mexicans and Latinos in California who supported the cause of defending freedom and democracy, yet to this day is NOT scene as a Mexican holiday.Who would have thought?!?!
The one staple food I think of when it comes to Cinco de Mayo is guacamole. Now, I’m not going to start claiming to have the BEST guacamole because as far as I’m concerned, every person I meet who makes guacamole claims to make it “the best”. If you happen to love lots of spices and flavor with no added fat.. I recommend trying my simple ingredients to make great guacamole below 🙂
