Are you preparing for Cinco de Mayo? This Spicy Guacamole Dip with Avocados From Mexico needs to be at the top of your list. This post is written in partnership with Avocados From Mexico, all thoughts and opinions are my own.
One thing my family loves to celebrate is Cinco de Mayo, does yours? I love to go all out with lots of festive foods, even if it’s only my husband and kids. We like to make it a fiesta and enjoy time together.
This Spicy Guacamole Dip is always a must have when we celebrate Cinco de Mayo. My husband loves spicy foods, although I have to say, I’m a bit leery of them. They set my mouth on fire, but he on the other hand is always requesting more spice.
I did just that for this guacamole dip. I used ripe Avocados From Mexico paired with some fresh cilantro, onion, lime, tomato, and pepper to make this delicious dip.
We paired our guacamole dip with tortilla chips.
A few things that I’ve learned about avocados is that sometimes you have to let them ripen a bit in order to make them soft for guacamole. This can be done by letting them sit in a brown paper bag with a banana or apple. Another tip is if your guacamole starts to lose that green color, then sprinkle just a bit of lemon or lime juice on it to help keep the color.
We always pick up Avocados From Mexico because they are in season year round and help us to have a fun celebration all year! We like to keep Cinco de Mayo going by having Taco Tuesdays regularly, too. It always means this Spicy Guacamole is on the menu.
