I love using fresh food to make something really tasty and with a blender like Blendtec it’s so EASY. Between the guacamole and the margaritas, Cinco de Mayo is one of the most festive food holidays. There is one kitchen gadget that can make all the necessary dishes.. Appliances from Blendtec (of Will It Blend fame) are a blender and food processor rolled into one. They can be used to make margaritas and mixed drinks, of course, but also salsas, dips, hummus, pizza dough, ice cream or brownies
