Yes, It's Here, Cinco de Mayo

Set the tone for the day...early!
You know, if partying is on the agenda for much of the day, 
doesn't it make sense to fuel up from the start?
I love breakfast and I love the flavors of Mexico,
here is an idea that bows to both.

Huevos Rancheros
Huevos Rancheros is one of those dishes that is fairly versatile, meaning, people can easily tweak it and make it their own. My favorite, however, is something fairly traditional, including slightly fried corn tortillas, refried beans, and a killer red sauce that you will probably want to put on anything around you it is that good.
For the recipe got to Simple Comfort Food.

Cinco de Mayo is a date of great importance for the Mexican and Chicano communities. It marks the victory of the Mexican army over the French at the Battle of Puebla in 1862. Although the Mexican army was eventually defeated, the "Batalla de Puebla" came to represent a symbol of Mexican unity and patriotism. With this victory, Mexico demonstrated to the world that Mexico and all of Latin America were willing to defend themselves from foreign intervention and conquest.
