15 Amazing Avocado Recipes for Cinco de Mayo // thehealthymaven.comWell I’m back this week with another Avotastic (how many “avo”jectives do you think I can use in this post? Challenge accepted.) post and more importantly, getting you prepared for the biggest party of the year: Cinco de Mayo!

Cinco de Mayo is basically the avocado’s birthday, wedding and anniversary combined. If you’re not eating avocados on Cinco de Mayo then I probably don’t want to know you. I kind of feel that way about every other day of the year too but Cinco de Mayo makes me particularly sassy.

I’ll be in Minneapolis celebrating with my girl Lee this year, which shouldn’t be a problem since she’s equally as avosessed as I am. Don’t be surprised if you see pictures of us eating guac straight from the bowl and margaritas at 11:00 AM all over Instagram. I mean whaaaat?
