Cinco de Mayo (Fifth of May), is a celebration of when the Mexican army was victorious over the French at the Battle of Puebla in 1862, during the Franco-Mexican War. What has become a significant holiday in the United States, has never been much more than a minor holiday in Mexico. While some areas of Mexico don’t recognize it at all. Rather than focusing on the original meaning around a military victory, the United States has turned celebrating the day by recognizing Mexican culture and heritage through parades, music and street festivals.

Great Plains Communications would like to wish everyone a happy Cinco de Mayo. To help with your celebrations, we have teamed up with our cable channel, The Food Network (Marcela Valladolid) to bring you a few recipes to keep in mind no matter if you have all afternoon to plan the meal or under an hour.
