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.
- Rick Bayless's Braised Greens Tacos: Earthy and rich because of the greens, sweet from the caramelized onions, smoky from the chipotle.
- Black Bean Tostadas with Corn Relish: The interplay between hot and cool, the balance of savory warm filling, and the spicy bite of a good salsa—all good things.
- Poblano Tacos: These tacos filled with roasted poblanos contain no meat, but still pack lot of flavor.
- Chorizo, Egg and Raisin Tacos: Because chorizo is highly spiced and ready to go from the outset, it’s a no-fuss, quick-to-the-plate breakfast standard.
