Mexican Independence Day officially starts at midnight tonight, marking Father Miguel Hidalgo's cry for independence to rally the people of Mexico in 1810. Mexican restaurants throughout the Denver area will be helping guests celebrate with specials and parties. Some are rolling out one-day deals, while others are adding seasonal menu items for those who can't make it to their eateries tomorrow. Among them are Zengo, which is launching a culinary tribute to Cabo, and Kachina Southwestern Grill, which is offering a souped-up guacamole menu for the day -- and a recipe for the restaurant's house version of the universally loved but seldom perfected dish.
