some people believe that cinco de mayo is mexican independence day, but, you and i know that cinco de mayo is the day that the mexican army defeated the invading french army in 1862. had the brave mexican soldiers not taken on the french army that was twice as big as their army, we might all be speaking french today!

so naturally, its a great day to celebrate with friends and family. i think queso dip is a nice treat i like to share with mi amigos on cinco de mayo. a nice big batch of guacamole is also a welcome and festive treat!

sometimes i like to improvise and make up my own cinco de mayo celebration.
