I have to admit that, like St. Patrick’s Day, it was really fun celebrating Cinco De Mayo pre-baby. Yes, I enjoyed heading out to a small bar after work with friends to enjoy some margaritas and maybe some tequila. One year we even went to an awesome Mexican restaurant in NYC for a delicious feast. But times change and now little holidays like this are celebrated at home, sometimes with friends and family, sometimes just us.
If you’re planning a celebration for Cinco De Mayo this year, I have a quick and easy guacamole recipe with a kick. Here’s the disclaimer, you must like blue cheese for this.
This is your basic guacamole recipe, with crumbled bleu cheese added in, and it’s heavenly. The blue cheese adds a tangy creaminess that is just oh so good with each bite. And when the guacamole is scooped onto a tortilla chip, the added saltiness from the chip makes it even better.
I love that this isn’t your usual guacamole and I think your guests will too. It takes all of 10 minutes to whip up, so it’s such an easy party dip to throw together.
