Get in the fiesta spirit! Cinco de Mayo is coming up. This day signifies the Mexican army’s win over the French at the Battle of Puebla during the Franco-Mexican War. In Mexico, it’s referred to as El Dia de la Batalla de Puebla. Traditionally Cinco de Mayo is celebrated with parades. Work may hinder your parade attendance, but make sure to bring the flavors of our southern neighbors to your table tonight.

Change up traditional pico de gallo with black-eyed pea beans. Black-eyed pea beans bring stunning visual interest to the dish. Their unique beige color with name sake black eyes give a great conversation starter for guests. Mix the beans with a multitude of ingredients including corn, tomatoes, red onion, cilantro, and lime juice to incorporate a juicy and fresh flavor to the pico. Use jalapenos for added spice, but keep your guests heat tolerance in mind.
