Cinco de Mayo is a day of national pride for Mexicans around the world, commemorating Mexico’s victory over French forces in the Battle of Puebla on May 5, 1862. We join in the celebration with our favorite Mexican food and drink.
- Leo Maya's Chicken with Green Sauce: Mario Batali's Acapulco-born babysitter makes this dish for his family once a week.
- Nigella Lawson's Mexican Chicken Salad with Black Bean Salsa: Quick, easy, and light–not the traditional mayo-based chicken salad.
- Chicken Fajitas: Grilled, marinated chicken strips on warm four tortillas provide a base for all the guacamole, sour cream, and pico de gallo you can pile on top.
- Essentials: Easy Enchiladas: Although this recipe may not be authentically Mexican or even authentically Tex-Mex, it is consistently yummy.
