In fact, on May 5 we eat more than 14 million pounds of it! That's 28 million avocados, and enough guacamole to cover the entire Alamo 24 inches deep. Or the field and end zones at Texas Stadium 20 inches deep.
No wonder it's the biggest day for avocado consumption.
How about whipping up some serious guacamole yourself? Try these recipes:
Tangy Green Guacamole
Pico de Gallo Con Avocado
Seven Layer Party Dip
Make it easy on yourself. Look in the Produce department for H–E–B Fresher Lasting Avocado Chunks packaged along with Fresher Lasting Salsa — all in a convenient guacamole kit.
