In Mexican culture, the fifth of May is a day that celebrates the Mexican army’s victory over France in 1982 at the Battle of Puebla. Although it is a minor holiday in Mexico, the United States and Canada has adopted this holiday and turned it into a huge commemoration of Mexican culture and heritage. Traditions celebrated this day include parades, re-creations of the battle, and other food and costume-related events. If your restaurant or business participates in the celebration of Cinco de Mayo, here are some of the items you will need from our store.
Many Mexican dishes incorporate cheese, aka “queso” in Spanish. A great recipe idea is white cheese dip. This appetizer is an authentic recipe that is served with chips and tortillas. You will need white cheese, milk, butter, green chillis, cumin, garlic salt, cayenne pepper, and chopped tomatoes and cilantro for garnish. You will find all these ingredients and your chips or tortillas at our restaurant food supply store in Toronto.
Another traditional element of Mexican food is salsa. You can create your own using our ingredients such as jalapeno peppers, onion, garlic, canned tomatoes (drained), cilantro sprigs, and salt. You can also buy pre-made bottles in mild, medium, and hot.
Whatever dish you make for Cinco de Mayo, be sure to stock up on pork, ground beef, chicken, and fish. Our meat section is chock full of all kinds of meats, so you can add the protein to your dishes.
If you want your customers coming back for more, try cooking dishes like burritos, quesadillas, tacos, guacamole, chilli con carne, tomato salsa, enchiladas, and chilli. These dishes smell amazing and incorporate a variety of tasty ingredients that can make anyone’s mouth water. Need ingredients?
