Celebrate Mexican Independence Day with National Guacamole Day
Did you know Mexican Independence Day and National Guacamole Day fall on the same day? Celebrate both of these events on September 16, 2021, at Jalisco Mexican Grill.
Mexican Independence Day celebrates the day Mexico declared independence from Spain in 1810. In Mexico, the holiday is celebrated with fiestas, national pride, mariachi concerts, and parades. Additionally, the Dolores Village church bell is rung by the President of Mexico to commemorate when a priest rang that same bell over 200 years ago to make a speech that set the tone for the War of Independence from Spain.
For that outside of Mexico, there are many different ways to celebrate Mexican Independence Day. One way you can do so is by combining your celebration with National Guacamole Day.
Guacamole is a dip first created by the Aztecs. In the 1500s, the Aztecs crafted food from mashed avocados. They called the dish “ahuaca-mulli,” or “avocado sauce.” By 1833, avocado trees were planted in Florida. Three years later, the trees were cultivated in California as well. The Hass avocado is the most popular avocado in America and it was originated in 1935 by Rudolph Hass. Today, Americans consume 7 pounds of avocados per capita.
This September 16, head to Jalisco Mexican Grill and order up some guac. We serve a regular guacamole dip, but you can also have the guacamole made fresh at your table for a couple of extra bucks. You can celebrate Mexican Independence Day and National Guacamole Day all in one place when you visit us at 8389 S Tamiami Trail in Sarasota, FL.
