5 guacamole recipes for Cinco De Mayo
Are you celebrating Cinco de Mayo this Sunday? For me, the chips, dips, tacos, tamales and enchiladas are enough for me to celebrate this special day that commemorates the cause of freedom and democracy during the first years of the American Civil War (taken directly from Wikipedia).
I’ve been to a lot of celebrations and parties, and there’s nothing like a Cinco de Mayo party. The food, the music, the fun, the laughter, the food, the drinks and did I say food? But you can’t have a great Cinco de Mayo party without a killer guacamole.
