Try avocados in individual Mexican food items like tacos or burritos, as part of appetizers, or in a fresh guacamole or avocado dip so everybody can dip tortilla chips into something delicious. The possibilities are deliciously endless if you need Cinco De Mayo food. Not only is a small avocado a great ingredient to use in numerous ways for Cinco De Mayo, but it is also a healthy food that contributes unsaturated “good” fats and almost 20 vitamins, minerals and phytonutrients including Vitamin E, Vitamin K, Vitamin C and Vitamins B5 and B9. A small ripe avocado will have a dark green to nearly black skin color, a bumpy skin texture and should yield to gentle pressure without leaving indentations or feeling mushy. Avocados with a slightly bumpy texture should be ripe in 1 to 2 days. They will also be somewhat firm and have a dark green and black speckled color.
