We Americans like to consume copious amounts of alcohol to celebrate a crucial battle in Mexico's bid to rid the country of French forces in May 1862.
Hence, Cinco de Mayo.
Why not add fat to the mix?
We give you ... Cinco de Mayo-nnaise.
Or, five easy Mexican-ish recipes that contain mayo.
We shook down Tim Spinner, co-owner of Fort Washington's Cantina Feliz, for his recipe for the decadent Elotes Loco - basically corn on the cob slathered in lime mayo. (Recipe is here.)
We raided Yummly, the recipe aggregator, for ideas. Here's a Chipotle Mayonnaise that seems to go with everything. And from the blog Smitten Kitchen, a dandy Tequila Lime Chicken. And from MyRecipes, a chicken wrap.
And by way of Pinterest, we got an idea from mega mayo maker Hellmann's (that's Best Foods west of the Rockies, for some silly reason) and came away with the easiest fish taco recipe you could imagine.
