Street fair in Tepotzlan

In celebration of Cinco de Mayo, I wanted to share some pictures from our family’s visit to Mexico City and the surrounding area. We took our trip a couple years ago but my kids still talk about their experiences there–from watching the famed voladores dancers fly through the air outside the National Anthropology & History Museum in Mexico City to eating a milenesa tortas in Chapultepec Park to stumbling into a street fair in a town on the side of a mountain and so much more.

To capture a little bit of Mexican culture at your dinner table, here are a few of my favorite authentic dishes you might want to try this weekend:

Roasted chile salsa

Homemade tortillas

Red chile enchiladas

Mexican rice

Rice pudding

Taking a breather after hiking up a pyramid in Cholula

Danza de los Voladores--the flying dancers of Veracruz

Sampling Mexican ice cream, nieves, in Tepotzlan

Eating a caramel filled churro in Puebla

Enfrijoladas (refried bean enchiladas) in Cholula
