Mexico is celebrating The Grito de Dolores ("Cry of Dolores") also known as El Grito de la Independencia ("Cry of Independence"), was uttered from the small town of Dolores, near Guanajuato on September 16, 1810. It is the event that marks the beginning of theMexican War of Independence. The "grito" was the pronunciamiento of the Mexican War of Independence by Miguel Hidalgo y Costilla, a Roman Catholic priest. Since October 1825, the anniversary of the event is celebrated as Mexican Independence Day.

Each year on the night of September 15 at around eleven in the evening, the President of Mexico rings the bell of the National Palace in Mexico City. After the ringing of the bell, he repeats a cry of patriotism (a Grito Mexicano) based upon the "Grito de Dolores", with the names of the important heroes of the Mexican War of Independence 

And nothing more mexican the the Jalapenos, here a simple yet delicious recipe of Extra Crispy JALAPENO POPPERS,Although their origin is unclear, Jalapeno poppers are most likely an Americanized version of the classic Mexican dish,Chile Relleno.

3/4 cup Monterey Jack Cheese
3/4 cup Sharp White Cheddar

Local leaders can adapt this to their respective circumstances from the state to the municipal or city level.
