Cinco de Mayo usually means plowing through a few tons of chips & dips and drinking a few too many cervezas. Then you end up digging yourselves out of seven layers of guilt.

We can help with at least part of that with the unbelievably good (and healthy) guacamole recipe.

Many still do not know that avocados are incredibly nutritious and contain a wide variety of nutrients, including 20 different vitamins and minerals and some of the healthiest fats on the planet. This is a dip you can eat guilt free.

Here is your Cinco de Mayo Guacamole:




3 large ripe avocados

1 large shallot, finely chopped

1/4 cup fresh cilantro, finely chopped

1 clove garlic, minced

1/2 of a jalapeno pepper (optional), finely chopped

1/2 of a lime

salt to taste

Scoop the avocados into a medium bowl and lightly mash with fork Add shallot, cilantro, garlic, and pepper if using. Mix in evenly with avocados using fork to mash any lumps. Squeeze the juice from the lime over mixture and continue blending until smooth. Add salt to taste. Cover and refrigerate for one hour.

And instead of chips try using jicama, cucumber or other sliced veggies to dip.

It’s full of flavor and won’t wreak havoc on your waistline.


It’s really that simple! Now you can make festive Cinco de Mayo even better with this crazy good guacamole.
