A Great Guacamole recipe! This is a quick and delicious dip that’s naturally vegan and gluten free with avocados, tomatoes, red onion, garlic, cilantro, lime and spicy jalapeño peppers.
Everyone will go crazy for this great guac!
There aren’t too many snacks I love more than guacamole and chips. And especially when the guacamole is great and the chips are crisp and salty. And when there’s lots of both, of course.
Friends, today I am sharing how I make my guacamole great with this simple and easy recipe for Great Guacamole. (I know, I am so original with my recipe titles. But this is a good one – I promise!!)
I’m not talking about anything too fancy. Just the classic guacamole ingredients, like avocado (duh!), tomatoes, red onion, garlic, cilantro, lime and a little bit of spice with jalapeño, all combined in perfect proportions to yield one great (and healthy!) dip that’s 100% gluten free, vegan and loaded with healthy fats and flavour!
Guacamole is one of those things that I truly believe is better when you make it yourself at home rather than buying it already made from the grocery store. It’s just so much more flavourful and fresh tasting and sooo worth the extra (although fairly minimal) effort – I mean, there’s zero baking, cooking and only a little bit of chopping and mashing. It’s also 100% gluten free, vegan and loaded with healthy fats and flavour!
What is not to love?
Guacamole is not only great for summer pool parties and taco night and Girls’ night but just about every other occasion possible. And this Great Guacamole is my absolute favourite dish for any sort of potluck gathering, holiday event, birthday party or casual hang-out I’m invited to.
Next time you’re looking for something that is EASY to make (let’s face it – we all are super extra busy so we need something quick and easy) and something that won’t break the bank but can be enjoyed by all… Great Guacamole to the rescue, people!
This recipe is super adaptable to the ingredients that you have on hand as well. Don’t have tomatoes? Leave them out. Don’t like spicy jalapeño peppers? Use a sweet bell pepper instead. And to keep that guac green (and not brown), I spritz lime juice all over the top of my bowl of guacamole and cover tightly with plastic wrap (like, plastic wrap right on top of the avocado to block any air exposure).
It’s one of those crowd pleasin’ snacks that you know everyone will love but it’s almost too good to share. It’s just too good.
And if this guacamole isn’t great enough you should try this Pineapple Guacamole because it is aahhh-mazing too but with a fruity, pineappley twist. #yesplease
