We both love guacamole and we always have avocados around so we're ready at any given time to make up this fabulous recipe!
Sometimes we add more garlic, or forgot to buy cilantro at the store, but then, it's time to get creative! Some red pepper, extra scallions or a sprinkle of Trader Joe's 'Everything But the Bagel Seasoning' make for the perfect twist!
Guacamole is festive for gatherings, simple for snacking, and mentioned in quite a few of our favorite books!
Guacamole has healthy fats, is vegan and tastes amazing- what's not to love?!
