Happy Cinco de Mayo!


Cinco de Mayo

also known as

El Dia De La Batalla de Puebla

~ The Day of the Battle of Puebla

Mexico’s most popular American holiday.

Many feel Cinco de Mayo has become more popular in the United States

than it is south of the border.

Others even compare it to the American version of St. Patrick’s Day, which many have come to see as an excuse for having a few cold brews, rather than a significant cultural event.


Cinco de Mayo ~ Commemorates the Mexican army’s victory over France at the Battle of Puebla during the Franco-Mexican war (1861-1867).


Cinco de Mayo is not Mexico’s Independence Day.

Independence Day in Mexico is celebrated on September 16 ~ And it is the most important national patriotic holiday in Mexico.

May 5 is like any other, it is not a federal holiday so offices, banks and stores remain open.


In New Mexico thousands are expected to gather at Mesilla’s historic plaza, the festival will begin with a ribbon-cutting ceremony showcasing a new gazebo, followed by parades, mariachi music performances and street festivals.

Food, fun, cultural traditions, games and entertainment is a celebration that is held yearly in cities and towns across Mexico and the United States.


Some of the largest festivals are held in Los Angeles, Chicago and Houston.

Traditional foods include salsa, refried beans, tacos, mexican grilled corn and mole poblano.



Mexican grilled corn -(sold by many street vendors in Mexico)


2 tbs. low-fat mayonnaise

2 tbs. nonfat plain yogurt

½ tsp. chili powder

4 ears corn, husked

4 tbs. finely chopped cotija, or Parmesan cheese

1 lime, quartered



1. Preheat grill to medium- high

2. Combine mayonnaise, yogurt and chili powder in a small bowl.

3. Grill corn, turning occasionally, until marked and tender, 8 to 12 minutes total.

Spread each ear with 1 tablespoon of the sauce and sprinkle with 1 tablespoon cajita (or parmesan)

Serve with lime wedges.

**cajita cheese also known as queso anejado is a Mexican cheese similar in texture and flavor of Parmesan. Can be found near other specialty cheeses, or in a Mexican grocery store.
