Interestingly enough, some mistake Cinco de Mayo as Mexican Independence Day, but it’s not. Cinco de Mayo commemorates the victory of the Mexican military over France in 1862 and in fact, it’s not widely celebrated in Mexico.
But in the U.S., Cinco de Mayo has morphed into a heritage and cultural celebration of Mexico and I think that’s something to celebrate. And what better way to celebrate than with healthy Mexican recipes, fiestas, mariachi music and perhaps a margarita.
Below is a list of my Mexican or Mexican-inspired recipes (I do take some liberties to make things Recipes appropriate). Case in point, the use of cassava flour to replace more traditional flour tortillas. But trust me, everything is delicious and gluten-free!
