Happy Cinco de Mayo!

It’s grey and a little dreary in Seattle today, so an enormous bowl of guacamole seems like the right thing to do.

I will add too much lime juice because I like it that way.

And if we’re going whole hog fiesta, I’ve got a few more beats to lay down.  Like grilled pineapple salsa!  It’s that sweet/spice mix, with some charcoal-y grill flavors to boot.

A deep bowl of smoky bacon turkey chili would keep that tortilla chip train rolling along nicely.

And to finish it all off?  I mean I don’t want to tell you what to do, but you should definitely serve some chewy brown butter chocolate pecan blondies.  Add a little cinnamon to the mix to keep them on theme, por favor.

Beer and margaritas are optional since it’s a Monday but, then again, since it’s Monday I probably am going to need a beer and a margarita.

Some more Cinco de Mayo inspiration, from around the web:

Delicious looking Hatch burgers from Dinner: A Love Story

Perfect Fish Tacos from What’s Gaby Cooking – yum!

This Hibiscus Tequila Cooler from Serious Eats sounds amazing.

The Candid Appetite’s Tres Leches Cake looks almost too pretty to eat… almost.

Happy fiesta-ing, friends!
