Happy Cinco de Mayo

Another year, another celebration. Down here in Mexico cinco de mayo is not a big deal. It’s not even an official holiday. But I wanted to write something today because I’ve neglected my blog for quite sometime and I need to change that. My work is still related to food. I’m still working with chefs and people involved in Mexican cuisine. I’ve just been too damn busy and the days keep getting shorter and shorter, hehe. Anyway, if you want to read more about cinco de mayo please read the article I wrote for Zomppa. And I leave you with a list of recipes you can make to celebrate cinco de mayo. I’m sure you will enjoy them!

Fish tacos with mango salsa

Cecina tacos with nopal salsa

Spring mango salad

Mexican bruschetta

¬°Buen provecho!


  • Love everything! Have a great weekend!

  • I love those little tortilla cups! I’ll have to try that!!! Great collection of photos and recipes.

  • I've got a batch of Mexican-ish chorizo in the fridge at the moment – those bruschetta are a great idea for it!

  • It's surprise me to know that Cinco De Mayo is not that big in Mexico. I heard it is a big deal here, especially the area close by neighborhood (San Jose, CA).

    Food your display in your blog is always make my mouth water.

  • Nice job again Ben! These are awesome recipes that I will be making. Cinco de mayo is big here in New York. Check out the latest at SimplyGoodEating blog: http://www.simplygoodeating.com/2011/05/a-simply-
