It’s been a hot, lazy Saturday for me. I’ve been hanging out, reading a book, drinking coffee, watching the Derby, doing a little laundry, setting up our new computer. Hmm, guess it hasn’t been so lazy after all! All that being said, it isn’t lost on me that today is Cinco de Mayo sooo…It’s happy hour at the Richard residence!!
We love Mexican food. We don’t need a holiday to celebrate our love of all things salsa. Spicy enchiladas, crispy tacos, refreshing margaritas, you can bet we indulge at least once a week!
One of our favorite places for Mod Mex food is Momocho in Cleveland, Ohio. One of my besties works there and introduced us to it a few years ago. I crave the guacamole and margaritas!!! I’m having one of those cravings right now! Since I can’t hop in the car and drive the 531 miles to my gastronomical Mod Mex heaven (but guacamole and margaritas for breakfast is tempting!!) I’ll have to make do with my own quite tasty knock off at home.
Guacamole with Pineapple, Jicama and Mint
- 2 ripe avocados
- 1/2 cup pineapple, diced fine
- 1/2 cup jicama, diced fine
- 1 tablespoon mint, chopped fine
- 1/2 teaspoon cumin
- 1 clove roasted garlic
- Juice of 1 lime
- Habanero pepper (as much or as little as you like)
- Salt & pepperPlace all ingredients in a bowl, mash with a fork and stir to combine. Serve with your favorite tortilla chips and a nice, cold margarita. How easy is that?!
It’s pretty delicious but it’s hard to beat the original, the atmosphere, the staff and the great time that’s to be had at Momocho.
The next time you’re in Cleveland (it does rock you know) stop by and see my friend Cristy. Her smiling happy face will be your passport to a fantastic evening! Viva Momocho!!

YUMMMMMMM! Totally going to make this guacamole! It sounds and LOOKS FANTASTIC!!!!! Yay! So happy to see a new post come into my inbox!! You KNOW it made my day happy!
Looks great! It inspired me to cook mexican tonight even if I am on WW. I cut corn off the cob and pan roasted the kernals, then added green pepper & onion slivers & 2 tsp. olive oil. Sauted that and filled a large warm flour tortilla with mexican blend cheese, veggies & topped off with a little sirachi sauce! YUM. Thanks for the inspiration!
