Celebrate Cinco de Mayo with our Top 10 Taco Recipes

May 3, 2019
by Rose Eat

    Some of you may know – particularly if you’re one of our American or Mexican friends – that Cinco de Mayo is this Sunday! We think that calls for a full-on fiesta!

    Cinco de Mayo falls each year on May 5, to commemorate the Mexican Army’s victory over the French Empire at the Battle of Puebla, on May 5, 1862, and celebrations often include dancing, music, parades and even battle re-enactments. But we think a triumph in battle calls for a triumph in the kitchen! We love a bit of Mexican here at HelloFresh (and we know our customers do too!), so are using the occasion to show off our top 10 taco recipes. It’s the tortilla wrap you can eat with one hand and high five your mates with the other!
