California Avocado season has ended.

Cinco de Mayo Contest: What’s Your Guacamole Style?

Cinco de Mayo Guacamole

California Avocados are in season just in time for Cinco de Mayo celebrations. That can only mean one thing: guacamole!

Meat-lovers Guacamole

As a true meat-lover, you prefer your guacamole to include more than one food group. Chef Jeff Rossman likely had you in mind when developing the California Avocado Country Guacamole with Bacon and Queso Fresco recipe.

If you’re not satisfied with merely pairing your guacamole with an adult beverage on Cinco de Mayo, try infusing your guac, too! The Margarita Guacamole recipe is bursting with lime and orange flavor, plus a surprising ingredient: tequila. Cheers!
