  • 1/2 red onion, minced
  • 1-2 serrano chilies, minced
  • 2 tablespoons cilantro leaves, finely chopped

  • 1 teaspoon coarse salt
  • freshly grated black pepper
  • 1/2 large ripe tomato, seeds and pulp removed, chopped
    Directions:
  1. Cut avocados in half. Remove seed. Scoop out avacado from the peel, put in a mixing bowl.

History of Cinco de Mayo

 
 

Cinco de Mayo is not a particularly significant celebration in Mexican culture, but rather a celebration OF Mexican culture in other nations. The day itself commemorates the Battle of Pueblo, in which the Mexican army overthrew the invading French militia against all odds. Unable to pay debts that were due to France, the French lead by Napoleon III attempted to overthrow the Mexican government and establish their own Second Mexican Empire. On May 5, 1861, Mexico proved victorious.

Many people have the misconception that Cinco de May celebrates Mexico's final independence from Spain. The actual Mexican Independence Day, and the most important cultural celebration in Mexico, is on September 16th. However, Cinco de Mayo is used across the United States and in several other countries as a day of celebration of Mexican culture and heritage. Generally, celebrations include eating Mexican foods of all varieties, drinking margaritas or tequila based drinks, listening to mariachi music, and dancing. Across the US, Mexican food restaurants will hold special celebrations or discounts on Cinco de Mayo as well.
