For our Cinco de Mayo celebration, I've used some bright orange fabric as a table runner and my straw placemats to go with the sombrero. I'm serving guacamole in a margarita plastic "glass" from Walgreens.
I lined the sombrero with plastic wrap and filled it with chips.
I made the chile pepper napkins with the easiest mitered corner, following the directions, found here. These turned out great! The only difference from the tutorial is that I lined mine, so that they are two-sided.
My taste in guacamole is very simple. All that's needed are the avocados and a few other ingredients. If you want more, add some chopped onion and tomatoes. Here's how I make it:
fresh lemon or lime juice ( I prefer lime)
garlic salt to taste, but I'm now adding the McCormick's Chile/Garlic salt (LOVE that stuff!)
Peel the avocado, take out the pit and mash, leaving some chunks for texture, unless you like it smooth. Squeeze in some lemon or lime juice and add the garlic salt to taste. Enjoy!
Happy Cinco de Mayo!
