Cinco de Mayo commemorates Mexico's unlikely victory against the French Army led by Napolean III on May 5, 1862. To celebrate this win for the country just south of our border with the food we so love, there's an easy Mexican shrimp cocktail recipe you need to try. You'll need fresh shrimp, tomatoes, chipotle chiles, avocado, and cucumber for this recipe. Make your own tortilla chips or buy the best chips you can find. This is a good party food that goes beyond the regular cheese and bean dips, and even salsas.
