Family-friendly Cinco de Mayo recipes for an easy celebration

One of my favorite holidays is this week (tomorrow!): Cinco de Mayo. Having just returned from an amazing long weekend in Mexico, I'm more excited than ever to honor a day—technically the mark of the Mexican army's victory at the Battle of Puebla—that is a celebration of one of the warmest, most beautiful cultures on the planet. And I'm not just saying that because I love Mexican food. Yes, Mexican food is wonderful, but it is a mere reflection of the beauty of the people and place. Mexico stole my heart and it's no wonder: It is full of color.   Its culture honors amazing ancient traditions. Even ones like pulque that can get you a little drunk.   And, of course, Mexico has a varied, rich cuisine that never ceases to amaze—or sate—me. Cinco de Mayo is a wonderful opportunity to drink margaritas and shake your maracas (ahem), but it's also a wonderful opportunity to dig into Mexican culture and these recipes, too. I hope that you will. Here are a few to get you started. (more after the jump)
