Having lived in the southwestern United States my whole life Cinco de Mayo has always been a party time but I hear rumors from the other end of the country that people treat it as a junior St. Patrick’s Day back there now. The world is going crazy and a bar holiday is falling on a weekend. Let’s take that as a hint and enjoy ourselves a little. Here are some guacamole and salsa recipes for those of you who want to get a little fancier. And if you have a favorite, feel free to share it with us in the comments. I may try every one I run across this weekend.

Have a great weekend, everyone!
