There are so many National Food Holidays that sometimes it's hard to keep track. Don't worry, though, because we've got you covered! Today (Febraury 27th) is National Kahlúa Day!
With roots in Veracruz, Mexico, Kahlúa is a spirit filled with rich culture and blended traditions. A blend of pure sugar cane and 100% Arabica coffee, it pairs perfectly with both hot and cold cocktails. You know what that means: we've got a delicously creamy and boozy recipe for you to try! We're going iced coffe. But not just plain 'ole iced coffee: the is-it-5-o'clock-yet Kahlúa Café Con Leche Iced!

With the Academy Awards airing this Sunday, we know you'll need your snacks ready-to-eat from the start of red carpet coverage (what will they wear?!) until the closing commentary (will Alfonso Cuarón really take home the gold for Gravity?).
While you watch, we've got a super simple entertaining tip for you: break away from the traditional soda and popcorn combo! Instead, we're obsessed with Wholly Guacamole's 7 Layers of Greatness dip. That's right, we're telling you to jazz up your evening by having you and your guests munch on a DIY appetizer that will be as much fun to make (and eat) as seeing who will trip on their words (or their heels) during this year's Oscars. The best part? It's served in individual cups, so you can easily keep the double-dippers away! Perfecto!

If you've ever celebrated a holiday just for the sake of, well, celebrating, today's your day. It's National Tortilla Chip Day, and we can't think of anything else we'd rather celebrate than the crunchy companion that goes so perfectly with our guacamole, salsas, dips, and below that cheesy beef-and-jalapeno nacho recipe we just can't seem to resist (Salsa verde & sour cream on the side, please). Any way you decide to eat it is great, but we think this recipe with refreshing ceviche is a sure hit.
