I really love Mexican food. Have I mentioned that before? I am sure I have. Anything that comes with a side of guacamole is a definite winner for me. I seem to have gotten myself a reputation for being a bit of an avocado fiend (pretty fair to be honest). On Instagram, a HHH reader tagged me in a photo about avocados. They saw avocados and thought of me – I guess I do talk about/eat them pretty often. What can I say? It’s green gold!
Tomorrow is Cinco de Mayo and I shall be celebrating Mexicaness with a big Mexican feast. We really wanted to go back to Mexico this year, but we are unable to, so we are just going to have to eat lots of Mexican food to make ourselves feel better. I thought I would share some of my favourite Mexican recipes that I have posted here on HHH, as well as some recipes from around the web that I really like the look of. The title of each recipe is clickable and will take you to the full recipe.
