Recipe: Crock Pot Pork Green Chile

May 5, 2016

Happy Cinco De Mayo everyone! In an effort to learn a little bit about Cinco de Mayo and not be totally ignorant to it's importance -- I did some research. 
Cinco De Mayo is observed to commemorate the Mexican Army's victory over French forces at the Battle of Puebla on May 5, 1862, under the leadership of General Ignacio Zaragoza. This battle was significant in that the 4000 Mexican soldiers were greatly outnumbered by the well-equipped French army of 8000 that had not been defeated for almost 50 years. Second, since the Battle of Puebla, no country in the Americas has subsequently been invaded by any other European military force.
Get it Mexico! I'm celebrating you today! And, I'm celebrating you the best way I know how. I'm making delicious tacos, drinking a margarita and I'm going to listen to great music. Chris Stapleton, we're coming for you tonight. 

PS. Isn't this picture of Tullum, Mexico stunning?
