Loving (and Hating!) Tequila and Guacamole

Just because I’m not Mexican doesn’t mean I can’t celebrate Cinco de Mayo! This fun-filled holiday is only two days away, and I still don’t know what I’m going to be doing. My gut is telling me to go out for some tequila, but my brain is telling me to stay home and just chow down on some guacamole. I wonder which will win out?

I have a love/hate relationship with both tequila and guacamole. Find out why after the jump!

1. It’s impossible for me to have either in moderation. This leads to terrible tummy aches, so I tend to only eat or drink these two rarely.

2. There are so many different things you can do with both of them. Margaritas are just the tip of the ice berg. And don’t just think of guacamole as just a dip. You can use it in tons of dishes.

3. It can difficult to find good versions of either unless you’re at an authentic Mexican restaurant. I’ve had bad guac before, and it was extremely disappointing. A bad tequila shot isn’t just a bummer, it’s a waste of money.

4. Both seem to improve my mood. With just one margarita, I can be a much giddier person. When it comes to guac, the rich flavor of it makes me happy too!

So after those four reasons as to why I waver back and forth between loving and hating guacamole and tequila, here are my top ways to use both!
