September 16: Have a Mexican Fiesta on the Independence Day of Mexico!

Mexican food always goes down a treat because of the diverse range of herbs and spices it incorporates, and Mexican Independence Day presents a welcome opportunity to enjoy such popular foodstuffs.

Independence Day has featured on the Mexican calendar since 1825, and the date of the celebration coincides with the beginning of the nation's War of Independence on September 16th 1810, when the 'Grito de Dolores' ('Cry of Dolores') was proclaimed by a priest rallying local people.

Today, food plays a central role in Independence Day festivities. Pozole, a soup dish, is one of many delicacies that's traditionally enjoyed by the Mexican people, and is the perfect fit if you're looking for quick appetizer recipes.

You might be interested to learn that it's also common for Mexicans to dress food on Independence Day so that it's red, white or green - the colors of the Mexican flag. At Dishfolio, we approve of this - after all, what Mexican fiesta would be complete without bright green guacamole?
