If there's one type of cuisine I can get behind, it's Mexican. If it was up to me, I'd eat it every night of the week. Lucky for me, my husband and I are on the same palatable page. Too bad my kids have yet to discover the joy of Mexican food. But I say, the spicier, the better... paired with a margarita por favor. Cinco de Mayo might just be my favorite spring "holiday." It's a bonafide excuse to indulge in cheesy, crunchy, flavorful fiesta-ready food... and to sip tequila. I mean, what's no to like?!
