Our family loves Taco Night. I hear most people say Taco Tuesday is what they are having for dinner but our family just can’t stick to one certain night of the week enjoying Mexican food. Everyone loves celebrating Cinco de Mayo and of course all the fun foods that goes with it. One favorite of many to make, bring a party and serve with about anything is Guacamole. I usually do a small taco bar that is easy for us to add what we all like. The kids have a blast creating their own custom tacos and picking from all the delicious add-ins. Of course with Avocados from Mexico always being in season there will be plenty of fresh guacamole to go around. 


Whether you are feeding a family of four to five or entertaining a large group of friends, avocados are always the perfect addition to any meal. Is there a fruit more versatile than the avocado? You can slice it, dice it, smash it, or serve it whole. It taste great at breakfast, lunch and dinner or as a satisfying snack anytime of the day. And the best part is, you get the same nutritional boost whether you serve it on a sandwich, mix it in a dip, blend it in a smoothie or eat it all by itself. In fact, avocados are so popular at parties and festivities that people across the United States enjoy more than 1.3 billion pounds of avocados each year. That is a lot!
