History of Cinco de Mayo

The Battle of Puebla, which took place on May 5, 1862, was a battle between Mexico and France, in an effort for France to establish a satellite state in Mexico. General Ignacio Zaragoza lead the Mexican side to victory–a historic event which is now celebrated worldwide as “Cinco De Mayo”.

As a loyal Felipe’s follower, you know that we keep all of our food fresh and authentic. Our Chicken Tinga is especially authentic, hailing from Puebla, Mexico. In Puebla and other parts of Mexico, Tinga is a dish made with shredded chicken in a sauce of tomatoes, chipotle peppers, and onions. You don’t have to travel south of the border to get those zesty flavors though, because at Felipe’s, our Tinga is no different.

The Chicken Tinga is great no matter what you put it in, but we think it goes best in a super burrito with beans, rice, cabbage slaw, crema, and guacamole. Want an extra kick? Add in some pickled jalapenos and take it to the next level.

We hope you stop in on Cinco De Mayo to celebrate Mexico’s victory with some Chicken Tinga! We’ll be having fun and unique celebrations at each Felipe’s location–just check our social media platforms for more information!
