What holiday is coming up soon? Why it’s my favorite holiday of the year! (Even if calling it a “holiday” is a bit over the top.) Yes friends, I’m talking about Cinco de Mayo. And even though I don’t know anybody in Puebla I would be lying if I didn’t say that I think there should be (significantly) more days of the year in which people (outside of Mexico, of course) celebrate with Mexican food. So let’s get this party started, shall we?
When making guacamole as a dip, I like it chunky and with lots of flavor. This one features avocado, chopped tomato and jalapeño, minced garlic, cilantro, lime juice, salt, pepper, cumin, coriander and a touch of cinnamon. Also featured: the gastrognomie’s home-toasted tortilla chips.
It hasn’t been nominated for any major awards (yet), but it’s still a great way to kick off a celebration! In fact, having your own, fresh guacamole is so much better than eating the green mousse that most stores pass off as guac, that it’s pretty much grounds for a celebration in and of itself! Pass the chips (and the tequila)!
