I decided I should make a festive app for Cinco de Mayo. I had a couple friends over Saturday night before going out to The Bungalow so I thought the perfect app (and one of my favorites) would be guacamole. I am also an avocado fanatic so my decision was easily made. Growing up, avocados were a staple at my house. We always had a half dozen on hand for that Sunday sandy or a last minute appetizer before a nice dinner on the patio. I followed this recipe but feel free to tweak the veggies, making sure you always include avocado, lime juice, and a dash of salt. I added red peppers instead of tomatoes to give it a nice crunch. Guacamole is easy to make and as an added bonus, it is pretty healthy. Thanks WebMD for these fun facts: Avocados are a good source of fiber, potassium, and vitamins C, K, folate, and B6. Half an avocado has 160 calories (skim over this part), 15 grams of heart-healthy unsaturated fat, and only 2 grams saturated fat. One globe contains more than one-third daily value of vitamin C, and more than half the day’s requirements of vitamin K.
