Guacamole Recipes with More Veggies
Have you ever eaten guacamole for dinner and heard your mom’s voice in the back of your head asking where your vegetables are? These recipes, like Frugal Foodie Mama’s Roasted Veggie Guacamole pictured above, will quell mom and you can stop telling yourself that onions are a vegetable.
Fruit-Filled Guac Recipes
It’s still warm, some fruits are still in season so why not add them into your Guac too. Plus the burst of fresh, juicy sweetness contrasts nicely with the creamy avocado and spicy pinch of the pepper. Our Strawberry Guacamole, above, does this nicely.
Grilled Guacamole Recipes
Whether you put just one ingredient or the whole recipe on the grill like The Chic Site’s recipe above, adding char marks to your guacamole will change it up and bring you to a whole new dimension of guacamole heaven.
