I am forever a fan of Cinco de Mayo. To Mexican Americans, the holiday is a huge source of pride, and with that comes a whole lot of celebrating. (You can learn more about the history of Cinco de Mayo, here. Thanks, Wikipedia!) Plus, Shrimp tacos, queso, and margaritas? Count me in! Man I love a celebratory excuse to cook (and eat!) The countdown is on.
