No Cinco de Mayo party is complete without these simple guacamole recipes.

Make it smoky. A sprinkle of chipotle powder gives guacamole a smoky, spicy twist and turns it into an even more addicting snack.

Make it healthy. Guacamole is already a healthy snack (think of all those good-for-you fats), but add a little cottage cheese and you turn it into a protein-packed, creamy dip.

Make it holy. While not actually holy, this guacamole with roasted jalapeño is smoky and spicy at the same time, and will receive lots of praise at your Cinco de Mayo party.

Make it porky. Fresh chorizo, cooked and crumbled, adds peppery (and, yes, porky) notes to this fresh avocado dip. Don’t feel like cooking anything? Finely dice cured chorizo and add it to guacamole for a similar effect.

Whether you jazz up classic guacamole with roasted peppers or top burritos with the traditional guacamole you know and love, stock up on chips and celebrate Cinco de Mayo the best way you know how… with extra guac.
