Amidst the mariachi music and margaritas, 37.6 million pounds of Hass avocados are expected to be consumed this Cinco de Mayo, mostly in the form of delicious guacamole recipes. To help celebrate this festive holiday, the Hass Avocado Board is pleased to present its Fabulous Fiesta Guacamole recipe and culinary tips to spice up every Cinco de Mayo celebration.
Guacamole is the number one way to enjoy avocados, but certainly not the only way. Avocados are the perfect addition to a variety of Cinco de Mayo celebration dishes like tacos, burritos, tostadas and nachos. Try topping chicken, fish or steak with avocado and black-bean salsa, or add the delicious green fruit to a blender of margaritas to make the ÂAvoRitaÂ, a creamy twist on the traditional margarita. Hass avocados add luxurious texture and lively color, transforming otherwise ordinary dishes into culinary fiestas. Make your Cinco de Mayo celebration memories last all year!
To make the Fabulous Fiesta Guacamole recipe, fold roasted corn, red bell pepper, red onion and jalapeno-jack cheese into coarsely mashed Hass avocados, lime juice and cilantro. Then add a few dashes of hot sauce to make a guacamole recipe that is sure to be the life of your Cinco de Mayo party!
