Tomorrow is Cinco de Mayo, The date commemorates the Mexican army’s unlikely victory over French forces at the Battle of Puebla on May 5, 1862.
Here in the United States, most people don’t celebrate that monumentous victory. They rather eat and enjoy Mexican cuisine. I suppose that is OK. I certainly don’t mind tacos from time to time. Maybe I’ll make Spaghetti Tacos for dinner tomorrow night.
You can find my recipe here – After a long day of childhood you need… (please note that the giveaway on the post is over).
Essentially most people see Cinco de Mayo as the opportunity to eat, drink and be merry.
A staple for any Cinco de Mayo celebration is guacamole.
I have never made guacamole on my own. I have only enjoyed it at restaurants or pre-made from the grocery store. I honestly assumed it was too much work to make it on my own. WOW! Was I sure wrong.
The Litehouse foods brand sent me a guacamole kit to make my own guacamole dip for my family.
The kit included all the essentials…
- Cutting board
- Measuring spoons
- Avocado slicer
- Mixing Bowl
- Lighthouse Guacamole Herbs & Spice Blend
Check out just how simple this recipe is.
I was able to whip up freshly made guacamole in minutes. I can’t believe how easy it was.
Be prepared to drool…
It was so good that I almost ate the entire bowl of guacamole myself.
I have used several Lighthouse herbs and spices over the years. What I love most about them is that they are incredibly fresh tasting. They taste like they were freshly ground from your garden. They do not taste bland or stale like other herbs and spices found on store shelves.
Litehouse has such a nice variety too including (of course) the Guacamole seasoning, Red Onion, Ginger, Garlic, Dill and Italian, to name a few.
Lighthouse herbs and spices are available at many retail locations across the country.
