Our Favorite Guacamole Recipe

AS AN AMAZON ASSOCIATE I EARN FROM QUALIFYING PURCHASES

Everyone has to have a great guacamole recipe in their arsenal. Our favorite guacamole recipe is full of creaminess, tang, and bite! You will LOVE this version and always make batches of it to have on hand!

I feel like having a REALLY good guacamole recipe in your arsenal is key. You will always need it because you will be invited to potlucks, game days, picnics, etc. and additionally, you will likely be at the hosting end and a really good guacamole recipe is always welcomed at the dips and appetizer table.

Most of you probably already have a recipe you use but I just realized that I personally haven’t shared our favorite guacamole recipe on the blog yet.

We love ours pretty “plain” (as far as ingredient list goes) but the key is the lime juice. The tanginess along with the creaminess of the avocado and bite of the red onion is perfection!

Whether or not you use it, make be sure you have delicious guacamole at your parties — always!

The key to GOOD guacamole is having the perfectly ripe avocados. I’m kind of a freak when it comes to picking out avocados to use for guacamole. I’m the crazy lady standing over the avocado crate and going through the pile and gently pressing on their skins with my thumb. If they give a little; I know they’re perfect. You don’t want them rock hard (you won’t be able to smash them!) and you don’t want them super soft — they’ll be brown!

Also, I should say that all the “hacks” out there that get avocados to ripen quickly don’t work. I tried the whole wrapping the avocado in foil and putting it in the oven at a low temperature. It didn’t work for me and it just turned my avocado brown on the inside but it was still hard as a rock to slice. Weird, right?

Omg, and I’m going to admit something that some of you probably will think it’s gross.

You know avocado toast? Well, we had leftover guacamole and it was about to go bad so I smeared it on toast and had guacamole toast for breakfast, hahaha

Don’t knock it ’til you try it!

But chips dipped in guacamole is fine too. It’s more normal and far more addicting ;)
