Happy May 5th – otherwise known as Cinco de Mayo

Cinco de Mayo is a day for commemorating the Mexican Army’s victory over the French Empire at the Battle of Puebla, on May 5, 1862. What better way for us to help celebrate than sharing with all our fellow Mexican foodies this hearty, delicious Mexican soup recipe. Combining complex flavours and multiple textures, this truly is a sensory delight.
