Best Guacamole EVER

Leave it to me to write an entire cookbook on avocados (one that includes an entire chapter on guacamole) and then continue to dream up guac recipes 1 year later 🙂 But I’m not complaining, because it lead me to the best guacamole recipe ever. Kid you not, it’s my favorite!!!

The Best Guacamole EVER invented from www.whatsgabycooking.com (@whatsgabycookin)

I take my guacamole very seriously. It has to be the perfect mixture of smooth and chunky. Seasoned just the right amount. If it’s lacking on salt that’s a major bummed. AND…. here’s the secret. You need a mix of lemon and lime juice in the guacamole. Boom. Game over. Add to that the perfect amount of finely chopped red onions, freshly chopped chives and salt and pepper and a hint of spice and you’re set. You’ll be on your way to be best guacamole your kitchen has ever seen! Promise!

And then you can take this and jazz it up with any number of variations! I like to add bacon sometimes. A combo of pineapple and mango is delish and so summery. Or even throw in some roasted poblano peppers if you want extra smoke. You’re welcome in advance 🙂

  2. It’s perfect! The salt vs citrus with the heat of the jalapeño and onion is fantastic. Definite crowd pleaser!

  3. I love all your recipes! I love to entertain and cook. My biggest problem is cooking different meals each night for my family. The kids are all picky‍♀️ So I end up making a dinner for me and my husband then another one or 2 for the kids.
