A Fresh Fiesta with California Avocados

They say that California knows how to party – we have a feeling it starts when local, hand-grown California Avocados are on the menu. Why not throw a California-style Cinco de Mayo fiesta? From zesty guacamole to savory seven layer dip, California Avocados are on the menu of any Cinco de Mayo party worth its grain of (Margarita) salt. Here are a few ideas to refresh your fiesta:
