Cinco de Mayo Guacamole Recipe!

May 5, 2016

“Cinco de Mayo—or the fifth of May—commemorates the Mexican army’s 1862 victory over France at the Battle of Puebla during the Franco-Mexican War (1861-1867). A relatively minor holiday in Mexico, in the United States it has evolved into a celebration of Mexican culture and heritage, particularly in areas with large Mexican-American populations. Cinco de Mayo traditions include parades, mariachi music performances and street festivals in cities and towns across Mexico and the United States.” (http://www.history.com/topics/holidays/cinco-de-mayo)

Here at Flora, we’re celebrating with guac and later on, with margaritas. This guacamole recipe has an extra dose of healthy fats with the addition of Udo’s Oil (US/CA). Here’s the recipe if you’d like to join us!
