Here is a recipe that I found online for a Cinco De Mayo celebration and thought that I would try last night. As I homeschool my children,I thought that in order to talk about the day and the history behind it that it would be a great idea to cook something that celebrated the Mexican heritage. I came across this recipe and thought that we would try it. It was fairly easy to make and we really liked it! Lime- Jalepeno Chicken Ingredients 1/4 cup lime juice 2 tablespoons canola oil 1 tablespoon white vinegar 1 teaspoon ground cumin 1/4 teaspoon salt 1 each jalapeno 1-1 1 pounds boneless, skinless chicken breasts Cooking Instructions Whisk lime juice, oil, vinegar, cumin and salt in a small bowl. Stir in jalapeno. Place chicken in a shallow baking dish and pour the marinade over it, turning to coat both sides. Cover and refrigerate for at least 1 hour, turning once, or overnight. Preheat grill to high heat. Oil the grill rack (see Tip). Grill the chicken until cooked through and no longer pink in the middle, 3 to 4 minutes per side. Let cool slightly; thinly slice crosswise. Serve warm or chilled. Have any of you ever tried it or do you have a special recipe that you use to celebrate this day?

Oh thanks for the recipe. You homeschooled your kids? I homeschooled my daughter and she just graduated in 2003. I miss those days.

Yes, I do home school my children. I have one that is a sophomore and one that is in 4th grade. I really enjoy it and I am always looking at ways to make learning things a little easier for them or a little more fun.
