    I'm Mexican American and don't really celebrate this holiday ;-) I always try to make some sort of Mexican food for dinner that day at least though. This year not so much since are in the middle of moving. I look forward to trying some of these recipes though. I really want to make Mexican food healthier since my family always makes Mexican food. - 5/5/2011   5:20:00 AM
