This is one amazing guacamole recipe that will have you reaching for a spoon instead of chips!
As much as I love getting creative and sharing original and unique recipes, I also love to make classics. Guacamole is one of my favorite classic dips. It’s ready in about five minutes, it’s healthy and deeeelicious!
I’ve played around with this this recipe for the last couple of years and this one is a winner in my book. Two key ingredients that make this guacamole amazing are fresh cilantro and cumin. Both add so much flavor to the dip.
You won’t believe it, but I have not even tasted guacamole until two years ago. Actually, I didn’t use to be a fan of avocados at all. There was something about the texture that I just couldn’t get passed. Fortunately, I worked with a friend who loved avocados and couldn’t get enough. She’s bring an avocado with lunch almost every day and the avocado-love started to rub off on me. One day, I braved myself to try guac for the first time and that was it… I was hooked!
I know many people like to have their guacamole plain, simply avocado and some lime juice, but I like a pop of flavor that is added by red onion, tomatoes, jalapeno, spices and herbs. Mashed avocado is just a mashed avocado without all the extra veggies, herbs and spices in it. So don’t be afraid of flavor and make it pop!
HOW CAN YOU USE GUACAMOLE:
- Uses for guacamole are virtually endless, it is not just a dip!
- Top your favorite taco recipes with a dollop of guacamole.
- Burgers and sandwiches can also benefit from an addition of fresh guacamole. Much like this delightful Shrimp Burger.
- Don’t forget about nachos! Crispy tortilla chips piled high with chicken, beef, cheese and veggies can only be better with some guacamole.
