Creamy Tangy Guacamole
Ways to Guacamole
Guacamole is one of our favorite things to eat. Avocados are so creamy, nutritious, and filling. Guacamole goes well with pretty much all Mexican food, but it’s also great to have as a side or topping for your entree. When it comes to guac, you don’t really need a recipe, but maybe just a reminder of ingredients used.
I have seen so many different variations of this popular dish. A simple mixture of avocado and salt can be considered guacamole. Avocado mixed with pico de gallo is a popular option. There are even fun and different recipes using pomegranate seeds, strawberries, or even radishes. My friend Erica says her kids LOVE guacamole with pomegranate seeds. That is definitely next on my list!
This recipe is simple, and as you can see it doesn’t have tomatoes. I see a lot of guacamole recipes, each a little different. I love tomatoes with mine, but they tend to make it watery. Sometimes I’ll add diced tomatoes or salsa on top of my guacamole instead of mixing it in. A lot of times I throw in items I have in the fridge, like peppers that I need to use up. Feel free to get creative with yours! What do you put in your guacamole?
A potato masher is my favorite tool to use for mashing up my avocado. You could use a fork, but I find that a potato masher yields a perfect consistency. Sometimes we like very smooth guacamole, while other times I enjoy a chunky texture. I use this potato masher for so many things in my kitchen. I consider it one of my top kitchen tools, and I rarely make mashed potatoes.
