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.

As a Latina and Florida native who moved to San Diego – I LOVE AVOCADOS and I LOVE SPICY LOL! This looks really, really good. Alas my husband isn’t so big on spicy and neither are the bonus kids, but that just means more for me haha!
Oh yes, eat up!

With Cinco de Mayo literally right around the corner, I”ll be trying this recipe this weekend! I love guacamole and a little spice! This looks delicious!
I totally forgot all about Cinco de Mayo! This year is flying by. This recipe looks really good! I usually just buy a pre-made guacamole dip from the store, but I think I’ll make my own dip and chips this year! Thanks for the inspiration (and reminding me that we’re already in May! Haha)
Right?! I still can’t believe it’s May!

I love Mexican food and this guacamole dip looks so easy! Perfect timing because avocados are in season.
Okay so I am a Guacamole fan! There is something about the freshness of Guacamole that just sees to turn my day around. I will have to try this recipe when I do one of my movie nights.

Love me some guacamole! I also love a little heat on my food so this right up my alley! cannot wait to try it
I love the name of your blog! I also hate to cook. Okay… I’m a lousy cook and I avoid my kitchen at all costs. I might be willing, however to enter for the sake of a bowl of that guac. 😀
I was too and now I cook all the time! Ha! You’ll love this one, so easy to make.
Confession: I’ve never had Guacamole BUT this recipe makes me want to change that as soon as possible. It looks amazing!
Oh yes, you need to try it!
i love guacamole and the spicier the better! I usually add chopped jalapeños and ground cumin to mine. I also like it super chunky, do I dice my onion a little larger than most people do. It definitely takes a sturdy chip to eat good guac!
I love chunky too!
