Union Chef: Mexican Chicken Tostadas

By Linda Dao

Cinco De Mayo commemorates the Mexican army’s victory in 1862 over France at the Battle of Puebla during the Franco-Mexican War. Although it is a relatively minor holiday in Mexico, it has evolved into a celebration of Mexican culture and heritage here in the U.S. in areas with large Mexican-American populations.
