Cinco de Mayo

Do you celebrate May 5th?

Actually, Cinco de Mayo is simply described by Wikipedia as simple as –  Cinco de mayo started with the Mexican forces winning the Battle of Puebla against great odds on May 5 during the French-Mexican War. People started celebrating that victory every year.

I think it’s evolved more and more with major celebrations revolving around great food and drink!

How much fun do you have on Cinco de Mayo? Are you in the Kitchen or the restaurant on May 5th?

Do you like it HOT?  How hot?  I’m very very low on heat tolerance, personally…… but there are many ways to change the heat!

AND peppers are surely part of the celebration, in any form or fashion….

Do you ever have a Mexican Burger on your menu?  I thought this was a fun idea….

AND you can decide what kind of peppers to add, depending on your heat index!
