We LOVE guacamole at our house. It’s so easy to make & so much better for you than the pre-made versions that you find at the grocery (at least at mine anyway). If you are having a big to do & want this as an easy appetizer, it’s easy to double. Plus it’s incredibly colorful & smells scrumptious. If you’d like to add a kick to your guacamole, feel free to add in a minced jalapeno (with or without seeds depending on how brave you are). We like to eat our guacamole with pita chips, tortilla chips or carrot sticks. Or for a real change try putting it inside of mushroom caps & serving it that way!

So next time you’re in the mood for some guacamole, pick up the ingredients from your local farmers market or grocery & give it a go. You’ll be AMAZED how deliciously simple it is! The only thing I normally have to pick up are the avocados. The rest are pantry staples in my house! Ah, the importance of a well stocked pantry, perhaps this should be a topic for an upcoming blog entry!

    I’m addicted to guacamole! I especially like mine on hamburgers instead of ketchup and mustard. I like it with some spice, and recently I added a little Thai chili paste to it since I couldn’t find any hot chilies around–it was a great addition!

    Guacamole is one of those foods that I need to desire. It is not something I would eat all the time, but when I crave it, it better be great. Noting your recipe for the next time the crave hits.

    I adore guacamole! I love to make a fresh batch of roasted tomato salsa alongside a big dish of guac in the summertime. I usually end up eating so much of it that I’m no longer hungry for dinner, but salsa and guac are so healthy that I don’t mind! (I don’t allow myself to consider the chip factor). Yours looks like a delicious recipe – thanks!

    I was just thinking about guacamole yesterday!!
    This time I will add some feta cheese so that it becomes more creamy and salty, what do you think?

    Guacamole – so simple yet so good. A friend on mine is from Texas & he makes superb guacamole from mainly powderd spices. The key he says, the avocados have to be ripe. *a ha!* 🙂
