Yeah, I know, not that big a deal... Like St. Patrick's Day-a reason to consume alcohol! But, what the heck, Salud!

Who needs a reason?
But seriously, the day celebrates not what one might think:

The celebration of Cinco de Mayo in Mexico is somewhat controversial, since it was primarily a Mexican-American invention. Actually, a Mexican-Californian-American invention.

But since I celebrate St. Patrick's day with food, it would be very nice if some here would share their favorite Mexican-Whatever recipes.

I thought it commemorated the loss of Mexico's first shipment of mayonnaise which was transported on the Titanic and was lost at sea. Sinko de mayo, no?

I was in Puerto Vallarta on Cinco de Mayo a number of years ago. I asked where the celebrations were going to be, and he looked really puzzled.
