My favorite ever Guacamole recipe! This one is super easy, slightly spicy, totally customize-able, with a little secret ingredient that sends the flavor right over the top!
Ok, so I once lived in this super sad world where I could NOT find a Guacamole that was flavorful enough for me. It was all kind of bland, and sad.
I want crazy amounts of flavor that really bring the creamy-ness of the avocados out.
None of that weird store bought guac dip that has some kind of cream cheese flavor to it….that’s not right.
So, what’s the secret ingredient? Is it really a secret? Well, it was, until now!
Everyone who tastes my guacamole has asked me “why is this so good, what do you put in there?!” I’ve kept my lips sealed long enough.
Drum roll please….it’s salsa verde!!
It gives the guacamole just a little bit of tang, just a little something extra.
Now, this guacamole is completely easy, takes all of 10 minutes to make. The perfect quick party snack!
It’s also totally customize-able to your own taste. If you find a whole jalapeno too spicy, just use half. For max flavor, of course I recommend making it as written. But, I also want you to follow your guac loving heart.
A thing to remember here, is that avocados turn brown fairly quickly. So, you’ll want to make this and serve it immediately. Or, make sure you cover it in a bowl with plastic wrap, so that the wrap is actually touching the top layer of guacamole.
Then get it served within a few hours to have it still green and looking lovely on your table.
I’m making a double, triple, batch of this for Super Bowl this year…..what’s on your menu?
