Cinco de Mayo Party Menu: 5 Must-Have Guacamole Recipes


Hola! I love a good holiday just as much as the next person, and Cinco de Mayo is probably one of my favorites since I love Mexican foods. Tacos, chips and salsa, fajitas – I could have a different Tex-Mex recipe every night of the week and never get bored. Oh, and guacamole. Especially guacamole.

Since I’m slightly obsessed with avocados, I use them as often as I can in my cooking. Not that I don’t just eat them with a spoon sometimes – because I do. You can do so much with these fruits; they work well on sandwiches, in salads or smoothies, and even make creamy desserts when blended with some chocolate. (And yes, avocados are technically fruits, though we treat them like a veggie. Weird, huh? I guess we do the same thing to tomatoes, though.) A good guacamole starts with a great avocado.

Pair any one of these amazing guacamole recipes with some tortilla chips, tacos, and a few margaritas, and your fiesta will be the talk of the town.

Celebrate Cinco de Mayo with these must-have guacamole recipes.
