#TastyThursday – Cinco De Mayo edition

On Saturday, May 5, (also known as Cinco de Mayo) hundreds of thousands of U.S. citizens will be celebrating the Mexican victory in the Battle of Puebla. This regional holiday south of the border has become a big deal in the States, primarily because of it’s association with tequila and cerveza!
