Posted on

Guacamole is a staple dip at parties and get togethers. People love it for its creamy texture and the variations on this classic dip are infinite.

anddddd since cinco de mayo is coming up what better way to celebrate than bomb guacamole. Your guests will thank you.


You can't go wrong with this traditional interpretation. It's a crowd pleaser, delicious, and it's easy to make.

1 Medium Ripe Tomato, diced

1 Small Red Onion, diced (or about 1/3 cup diced onion)

1/4 Cup Cilantro, chopped

**** DONT FORGET, you are the chef. These measurements work but if you like more cilantro, add it!! Or don't use it at all. That is the beauty of this. But now let's continue on with the marvelous variations on this deliciousness

Spicy Mango

Feeling the tropical vibes? like a little heat? This mango adds the perfect amount of sweetness which is paired beautifully with the serrano pepper for a necessary spicy kick. It is cinco de mayo after all :)

1 Ripe Mango, cubed

2 Scallions, chopped

1 Serrano Pepper, diced


Feeling those fresh, summer vibes? This is perfect for summertime (or anytime) and elevates the avocado to new levels. The jalapeño gives a little kick but you can remove the seeds of the jalapeño if you want a little less heat.

1/2 cup Watermelon, small cubes

1/4 Cup Crumbled Feta Cheese

1 Jalapeno, Diced


who doesn't love pomegranate seeds? seriously though. Biting into them is a pop of freshness in your mouth. You can buy them already ready to go or use this handy video to easily remove the seeds from the pomegranate. And what is more cinco de mayo than a little tequila action?

1/3 Cup Pomegranate Seeds

1 Good Splash Tequila (YES, just yes)

1 Jalapeno, diced

Bacon and Cotija

Because simply put, Bacon makes everything better. For all your meat loving friends this is the perfect dip recipe.

4 Strips Bacon, baked until crisp then finely chopped

1/2 Cup Cotija Cheese, crumbled

1 Serrano Pepper, finely chopped

There are countless ways to change up the classic guacamole for when you need a change. Try one (or all) of these for your Cinco de Mayo party and watch your guests swoon. No one can resist the lure of fresh guacamole especially with an ice-cold beer (or some tequila if that's your thing)
