Whether you’re inviting friends and family over for a big Cinco de Mayo party or are just looking to make something special for yourself, this annual celebration is the perfect time to pick up some avocados and whip up a little guacamole. While the holiday is celebrated in Mexico to remember the Mexican Army’s win at the Battle of Puebla on May 5, 1982, it’s become a celebration of Mexican-American culture in the United States. Either way, guacamole, a dip invented by the Aztecs in what’s now called Mexico, is a good option when planning out the day’s festivities.

There are quite a few different recipes out there to choose from — simple or extravagant, tame or spicy, sweeter or more savory — but they all usually have one basic ingredient in common: Avocados.

No matter which one you decide to use, start off by rinsing the avocados to clear off any dirt. Move on to slice the pear-shaped fruit in half, lengthwise, and then discard of the seeds inside with a spoon. Now, it’s time to have some fun with it.

Here are 5 guacamole recipes to give a try this Cinco de Mayo:
