Cinco de Mayo

Cinco de Mayo is a day to celebrate Mexican heritage and pride, but it can be a fiesta for anyone who loves Mexican food and fun. The holiday started as an observation of Mexico’s victory in the Battle of Puebla, but has since taken on a new meaning, serving as a day to celebrate the culture and delicious cuisine of Mexico. You can create your own Cinco de Mayo celebration with ideas from snacks like guacamole and chips to mains like our favorite chicken enchiladas.

 

Don't forget the margaritas!

All About Cinco de Mayo

recipe

We added whipped cream and fruit to a classic tres leches cake recipe to make it undeniably delicious. You can use any fruit in season, alone or a combination. Now there's no need to visit a Mexican restaurant when you're craving a great tres leches cake recipe. Tres leches cake gets its name, which means "three milks" cake, because it's soaked in three different types of milk.

recipe
