Cinco De Mayo

Cinco De Mayo

Not sure what to make for your Cinco de Mayo party full of friends with all sorts of foodie preferences?! Well don’t worry, you’ll keep your gluten intolerant, vegan, and soy avoiding pregnant friends all satisfied with my recipes, which follow The Food Standards criteria.

Easy Peasy Guac

If you’ve gotta keep it a little more normal or vegan don’t add the sardines but for your daring, health loving friends this is sure to impress.  I would suggest multiplying the recipe by whatever number of people you plan on entertaining or hoard it all to yourself… I eat the whole thing.. I don’t share.

Ingredients

  • 1 avocado for each person you think you will be feeding  I do a whole one even when its just me though .. I’m a little obsessed
  •  1 medium tomato chopped into little squares
  • 2 cloves minced garlic
  • 1/4 chopped onion
  • 1/2 a lime
  • Himalayan sea salt to taste
  • ground black pepper
  • optional Sardines

Method: This is the least messiest and efficient way I have come up with to make Guac

  1. cut avocado long way, remove pit with spoon and peel off outer skin
  2. place avocado in bowl or molecajete  <= exact one I have + PRIME
  3. add 1/2 lime, some salt and pepper, garlic and onion
  4. smash and bash it, way easier with molecajete! <= cheapest for sale on amazon
  5. add tomatoes and more delicately spread them out
  6. Volia! you have made you Guac now serve!

Dipper Suggestions

For the boys: gluten free corn chips, sweet potato chips

For the health conscious folk: all the colors bell peppers, chicken breast, shrimp, jicama

Black Bean Soup

If you’re having a nice sit down kind of meal or have a crock pot you can leave on the serving table, your guests are sure to get a KICK outta this one. You don’t have to add the cayenne but whats Cinco de Mayo without a little spice!
