This week marks a pretty special milestone – this little blog is celebrating it’s 3rd year of existence. Last year I celebrated with this birthday cake frozen yogurt, but this year we are going to celebrate with one of my other loves: Guacamole.
If you’ve been around these parts for a while, you know it’s no secret how much we like our Mexican food in this house. I have spent countless birthday/anniversary/date night dinners at my favorite AZ Mexican restaurants. I don’t believe there’s an occasion that can’t be celebrated with some tacos and a maybe a margarita Guacamole is to Mexican food what frosting is to cake. Don’t you agree?
My friends over at Wholly Guacamole sent over a lovely array of guacamole and salsa for me to try out. I put quite a few of them out during my post-marathon party (One of Ari’s friends asked me who made the guacamole…lol). I do believe the spicy guac took home the prize for most loved (read: instantly devoured) but the classic was quite tasty as well.
Want to know what I loved the best?? These freaking adorable 100 calorie snack packs of guacamole (and there was one of straight avocado too!). I don’t know who thought of this idea but it’s seriously the greatest thing ever. It’s pretty much like a handi-snack for grown ups!
If you don’t want to eat it all straight from the package, the folks over at HUNGRY teamed up with Wholly Guacamole to show us how to make a couple of unique recipes.
Nathan Lippy shows us how to make some fun sliders:
and Alex T gives us the rundown on her Southwestern Frittata:
