Have a great Independence Day, Nancy! I didn’t realize that you had so many Mexican recipes on your site—I’ll need to come back and do some in depth research here! And I do agree—tacos al pastor are really the best. :=)

You have covered so much here–including many of my favorites. We are already gearing up for Independence Day here in San Miguel (the whole month of September is cringe-making for my poor dogs because of the fireworks!). I hope you choose a couple of these wonderful recipes to celebrate your patria in style!

Your poor puppies, I’m sure for you the celebrations will be so much fun. Thanks Victoria.
