It's National Spicy Guacamole Day!
November 14th is National Spicy Guacamole Day (not to be confused with National Guacamole Day, which is September 16th).
Some might find it odd to have two separate days devoted to guacamole, but I find it to be both appropriate and well-deserved. Here is why:
1. Guacamole is the most delicious dip in the history of appetizers. Seriously, have you ever met anyone who actively dislikes guacamole?
2. It's made with avocados, which are full of "good" fat (although I do not always feel that good after eating an entire bowl of guac).
3. It's versatile and can be customized for any variety of picky eaters. For example, I hate cilantro, so I do not include cilantro in my guacamole.
So bust out the chips! And to help you celebrate, check out a few delicious green dip recipes:
As mentioned above, this traditional recipe can be customized in so many ways. Add more chilies for a super spicy version, or subtract the cilantro for a tasty version... the choices are endless.
