Cinco de Mayo is right around the corner! The annual holiday falls on May 5th and commemorates the Mexican army's unlikely victory over French forces at the Battle of Puebla in 1862. To us, that means even more reason to dive into fiesta-time foods like tacos, margaritas and two of our favorite dips, guacamole and salsa.
My first memory of peas is that they're easy -- easy to roll down the back of your throat without chewing. Easy to roll under the table unnoticed. Easy to hide in the small pockets of your first big girl jeans. Easy to hide under your tongue, behind your molars and in your ear if need be. Easy to get past my well-meaning parents.
