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.

This Hibiscus Tequila Cooler from Serious Eats sounds amazing.

Happy fiesta-ing, friends!
