Did someone say “Taco Night?!” But first, let’s talk guac. Guacamole is always a huge hit at parties… and with March Madness around the corner, it’s time to level up your guac game. We recently refined our guacamole recipe for 2019 and gathered our tips to share with you below! We will continue to serve with tasty Pasqual’s Southwest Tortilla Chips. Image is shown below:
The basic guacamole consists of 3 ingredients: Of course, the holy avocado. Have you ever wondered why avocado is so loved by everyone? (Maybe it’s because it’s filled with vitamins and contains fiber, which ultimately helps control your blood pressure and keeps you full for longer… or maybe because it’s undeniably delicious!) Moving on to the second and third ingredients, add a splash of lime juice and a hint of salt. Add more for a stronger taste.
Salted chips made in grease might not be the best option if you are watching your figure. You can enjoy any of these recipes by substituting tortilla chips with carrots, celery, cucumbers, and more! Just about everything goes well with guacamole, am I right?
As tasty as the traditional guacamole is, check out our delicious recipes packed with bold flavors and still nutritious!
If you like your guacamole smooth and creamy, try adding Greek Yogurt! It’s a simple addition while keeping guacamole fresher for longer, due to the probiotics from the yogurt. This is a much healthier alternative than mayonnaise or sour cream.
Now imagine combining the 2 best dips of all time… guacamole + hummus = heaven! This combination is not only packed with flavor but also a powerful snack by helping fight hunger and keeping you full for a longer time.
Need a little kick? You can toss chili peppers into the mix or simply add Sriracha sauce. Sriracha already contains chili peppers along with a hint of garlic and vinegar. You can reference the red bottle with a bright green cap below for your next grocery trip:
Do you prefer sweet over spicy? If so, you’ll love fruit guacamole. You can combine your favorite fruits, but we suggest pineapple, banana, and mango. Serve this to your friends and family on a sunny day, and everyone will leave feeling refreshed and full!
For all you meat-lovers out there, you’ll enjoy this guacamole twist. How does guacamole and BACON sound? Once you try it, you may never go back. Adding crispy bacon bits and Cojita cheese toppings make this guacamole a huge hit at tailgate parties.
All aboard seafood lovers! Have you ever tried crab to your guac? This lean meat adds a soft, delicate texture that fits well with this recipe. This combines a little flair and a great taste. If you’re more of a shrimp fan, this is a healthy route for weight-loss diets while remaining extremely tasty too. Shrimp is low-fat and low-calorie, in which you can enjoy frequently in your guacamole without worrying about the after-guilt.
Other small twists to add to your guacamole recipe:
corn, black beans, pistachios, or cashews.
If you prefer traditional guacamole and enjoy just the way it tastes as is, try serving it as chunky instead of smooth. This makes a nice display of all the ingredients inside all while still keeping the same and simple taste. Or, throw it on the grill! Grill the avocados and mix with the other ingredients, and you’ll end up with a nice guacamole spread for your tacos, toast, or power bowls.
By adding a twist to your guacamole, it can make your taco night an unforgettable (and yummy) night with friends and family.
