25 avo-tastic guacamole recipes just in time for Cinco de Mayo! Because who doesn’t L.O.V.E. guacamole?!? Scroll below to find a winning combination you will enjoy…all #MeatlessMonday-approved!
Do you know what tomorrow is?! Only one of the best holidays, like, EVER…Cinco de Mayo!
While I’m rather partial to a classic, chunky guac (see my basic quick recipe below!), dressing up this Mexican staple is such fun. The rather bland (how dare I say that!) flavor of avocado makes it the perfect canvas to create a masterpiece. So with tomorrow being the most avo-tastic holiday of them all, it’s a great time to get guac-y with it.
Because who doesn’t LOVE guacamole?!?!
And if you don’t, #cantsitwithus.
