I’m Armenian, but sometimes I swear there’s got to be some Hispanic relative in my lineage! I LOVE LOVE LOVE Mexican food! I could eat it every day. My daughter does too. Between the two of us, we pretty much turn everything into either a taco, a fajita or a burrito.

In case you thought Cinco de Mayo was just another excuse to make a margarita…uh, it’s not. Not completely, anyway. Cinco de Mayo celebrates that day in 1862, when the Mexican army won the Battle of Puebla against an invasion by the French army. I’m not taking sides, but apparently Mexico was the underdog. I’m a sucker for an underdog.
