Celebrate Cinco De Mayo With This Tasty Recipe

Cinco de Mayo Gaucamole RecipeThe Perfect Guacamole For Your Celebrations

Cinco de Mayo is less than a week away; are you ready? This fun celebration is becoming increasingly popular in the United States, so you may find yourself wanting to get in on the festivities. The first thing you should know is that May 5th is not Mexico’s Independence Day. Instead, it is the date on which Mexican troops defeated France at the Battle of Puebla in 1862.

History is all well and good, but what really makes Cinco de Mayo fun are the fiestas. So you can have the tastiest party, we dug through guacamole recipes to find one so easy and so good it is sure to become one of your Cinco de Mayo traditions. To make it, you will need:

  • 2 Haas avocados
  • 1 lime
  • ½ red onion, chopped
  • 1 jalapeno, finely chopped
  • ½ bunch of fresh cilantro, chopped
  • Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper

Halve the avocados, peel them, and discard the pit. Put the avocado in a large mixing bowl and juice the lime into it. With a fork, mash the lime juice into the avocado until the avocado is mostly smooth with some remaining chunks.

Stir in the onion, jalapeno, and cilantro. Taste the mixture, and add salt and pepper as necessary. Allow to sit in the fridge for at least an hour so the flavors can marinate.

This batch can be easily doubled, tripled, or even quadrupled, depending on the size of your party. A squeeze of lime juice over the top every now and then will keep it from going brown. Make sure you have plenty of chips for serving!
