Dish For Your Cinco de Mayo Celebrations
Cinco de Mayo is just around the corner! You are likely looking for ways to celebrate, and what better way than with a delicious meal? To complement your cooking, we want to offer this tasty guacamole recipe. Ready in just ten minutes, this is sure to be a hit at your party!
- 3 avocados
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 1 lime
- 2 roma tomatoes, diced
- ½ cup of onion, diced
- 2 tablespoons of fresh cilantro, chopped
- 1 teaspoon of garlic, minced
- 1 pinch of ground cayenne pepper
Peel, pit, and mash the avocados in a medium mixing bowl. Add the salt to the avocados, and then juice the lime into the bowl. Mix well.
Add the tomatoes, onion, cilantro and garlic to the bowl. Mix well. Add in the pinch of cayenne and stir until all of the ingredients are combined. Taste, and add more salt as necessary.
This recipe serves four. If you are holding a larger fiesta, you can double, triple, or quadruple it as necessary. A squeeze of lime juice across the top of the guacamole will keep the avocados in it from going brown as quickly so your big batch will stay aesthetically pleasing during your whole celebration.
You can refrigerate this guacamole for an hour to bring out its best flavor. In a pinch, though, it can be served immediately and your guests are sure to still love it! Serve with chips for dipping, and be ready to refill the chip supply as people dig in.
