Last year I blogged about Cinco de Mayo Mysteries. I added a few titles, but I thought I'd run the post again for those who missed it...or won't take the extra step to click. :-)
I've supplemented the list with Mexican mystery writers and books set in Mexico. Add to your reading pleasure today with a Mexican Chocolate Celebration. Check out my other Blog, Dying for Chocolate, for recipes and suggestions of great Chocolate for Cinco de Mayo. Entrees, drinks and desserts and more desserts. I've also posted several recipes for mole poblano. The most recent are for moles made with animal crackers.
