Cinco De Mayo...Ole!

Happy Cinco De Mayo! I have a lot to celebrate today. My friend Deb, over at Sparkling Scrapbooks has posted a special project featuring my beloved Sookie! Deb is a designer for the Paris Hilton Scrapbooking line. I know, you're thinking, Paris Hilton? Scrapbooking? Really? But don't judge just yet! The line is actually pretty cool. Its great for teens and sassy ladies a like. I love her Pet's Beauty Shop line. Even if Paris isn't your thing, check out Deb's work, she is amazing!
In addition to that, I'm feeling a lot of love today over at my baking blog, Fairytale Frosting. Today my Mustache Cookies were featured on A Crafter At Sea. Joanne is a spectacular crafter as well. Check out her handmade items! You are going to love her upcycling!

With all that love, and that it is in fact Cinco De Mayo, I celebrated with one of my favorite meals: tacos, homemade guacamole and jalapeno cheddar cornbread muffins. Sound delicious?! Read on! I am sharing MY guacamole recipe and how to make jalapeno cheddar cornbread muffins. Its so easy you'll have Cinco De Mayo Dinner every week!
Guacamole Step One:

Gather your ingredients. Onion, 2 ripe avocados, 1 jalapeno pepper, 1 tomato, salt, pepper, hot sauce, and Worcestershire sauce.

Step 2:

Peel and mash your avocados.

Step 3:

Dice your onion (about 1/4), tomato (about 1/2), and jalapeno pepper (whole). Toss in. Season with salt and pepper.

Step 4:

Add a dash of Worcestershire sauce.

Step 5:

Add a dash of hot sauce.

Step 6:

Mix well and enjoy!!

Now onto the Jalapeno Cheddar Cornbread Muffins...
I'm a simple girl. I enjoy cooking, but for a meal like this, who wants things to be complicated right? So, gather your supplies...

Cornbread muffin mix (makes 6 muffins), Sharp cheddar (or whatever your favorite shredded cheese is), 1 egg, 1 jalapeno pepper, milk, and butter.

Step 2:

Finely chop your pepper, then mix up all ingredients.

Step 3:

Pour into greased muffin tin, and bake at 400 for 16-18 minutes.

Step 4:

Cool and enjoy! I love cornbread, but this cheesy spicy version gives it just the right amount of kick! See, wasn't that easy? Start your own fiesta tonight!
