Sometimes life happens when you're making plans to enjoy it. So Avocados From Mexico came up with some ways to make the most of Cinco de Mayo, no matter where Cinco takes you.
After months aboard the International Space Station, you are finally on your way back to Earth. You can’t wait to soak up the scenery — and the menu — you’ve so dearly missed back home before NASA sends you on another mission into the great beyond.
As you break the sound barrier, your mind wanders to the ingredients you have been storing in your spaceship’s Cryogenic Avocado Safekeeping Chamber to make guacamole as a celebratory snack en route to Earth. Your journey is perfectly timed: You will arrive just in time for the Cinco de Mayo party.
A blinding light shakes you from your daydreams. You are disoriented, but you realize that your ship has stopped. Are you dreaming, or are those gurgling voices you hear coming from tiny, one-eyed beings the shade of the Avocados From Mexico you’ve been craving?
When you come to, you realize that the only thing you were dreaming about was the guacamole. You’ve been abducted by aliens and transported to planet Mars. Only one thought races through your mind: How will you celebrate Cinco de Mayo if you can’t enjoy your guac?
Luckily, you don’t need gravity to think on your feet. Here’s how you bring a Cinco de Mayo party to the red planet:
The aliens agree to free you on one condition: You promise to make more out-of-this-world-good guacamole for them when they finally make that visit to Earth they’ve been planning for supereons. You run toward your ship, nearly tripping over a crater in the excitement of your escape. You fire up the engines and prepare to return to your own home planet. You feel the ship lift, and you leave the Martian air behind you before anyone could even think to say, “Blast off!”
Once you land, you will need to start planning the recipes you promised your green, gurgling friends. Visit our recipe archive for more dips to delight every species during your next mission.
