Like I said above, it's just another excuse for overaged adolescent Americans to eat and drink alcohol to excess.

The point is there are no authentic Mexican recipes for celebrating Cinco de Mayo because authentic Mexicans do not celebrate Cinco de Mayo!

Like I said, if you want authentic Mexican recipes, check out the Rick Bayless sites. He makes authentic Mexican food. Even though he and his, 6 I believe, restaurants are in Chicago, he travels extensively in all different areas of Mexico expressly for the purpose of obtaining new, authentic recipes.

Other people have a different view of it. If people want to use a Mexican historical date as a reason to learn more about another culture's food, what's it to you? There's no need to stereotype everyone that way.

Yeah, like The Battle of the Alamo. You get localized celebrations in parts of Texas and that's about it....

What is an authentic Mexican? Before or after the Spanish and French? If before, then maybe Andrew Zimmern might find it palatable.

I had a chance to cook with this lady a few months back.

This is the full version.



This is a quick more simple version

Those are beautiful. They're usually only served in Mexico in September and October (at least where we go), to celebrate Mexican Independence Day. We're not in Mexico then, so I haven't tried them yet, but have been coveting them.
