5 Healthy Recipes To Make For Cinco de Mayo

Cinco de Mayo is a time for indulging in delicious food and enjoying good company. Let this celebratory, unofficial holiday be a little different than previous Cinco de Mayos. Get experimental in the kitchen by making some staple recipes, and some that have a creative, healthy twist. It’s not just about chips and salsa or burritos. It’s about creating deep flavors that tell a story when they hit your taste buds.

In cities across the nation, people celebrate with festivities, parties, and parades, and these celebrations wouldn’t be complete without food. But Cinco de Mayo is not Mexican Independence Day. No, no…that is on September 16th.

Cinco de Mayo commemorates the Mexican Army’s victory over France in 1862 at the Battle of Puebla. This was during the Franco-Mexican war (1861-1867) and 4,500 untrained Mexican soldiers proved victorious over 6,500 trained French soldiers. While Cinco de Mayo isn’t really a holiday or a landmark event in Mexican history, it does provide an opportunity to embrace Mexican-American culture. An easy way to do that is through food.

To go beyond the average burrito, here are 5 recipes to help you indulge in healthy, festive flavors.
