Happy Cinco de Mayo!

Celebrating the Mexican army's unlikely victory over French forces
in the Battle of Puebla on May 5th, 1862,
Cinco de Mayo has become a day for American's of all ethnicities to celebrate Mexican culture.

some hot and savory Mexican dishes and dips.
With hopes that you yourself will be attending such an event of fiesta fare,
I might suggest that you don't arrive empty handed.
For a quick, easy, fresh and organic side dish that will seamlessly
mingle right next to the homemade tamales,
I give you...
