Few are the holidays I don't get excited about -- especially when food is involved. Cinco de Mayo is a Mexican holiday that’s actually more widely observed here in the U.S. than it is in Mexico. Making something special with your kids to commemorate it is a great opportunity to teach them about Mexican culture as well as get them involved in the kitchen. In preparation for this year’s Cinco de Mayo, I made my version of Mexican Lasagna. Layered with rows of tortillas, chicken, cheese and salsa, it's the perfect recipe for feeding a crowd. I made so much when I tested this recipe that the kids ate it for two days in a row...and they loved it.
Happy Cinco de Mayo!
