Hungry for a fresh take on guacamole? Maybe with a little tomato, onion, cilantro and peppers added to give it an extra bite? Well thanks to my friend Amber, you’re in luck…
I realized recently I’ve never posted a guacamole recipe. How can that be? Every paleo peep I know is crazy for avocados. Then it occurred to me – I’ve had Amber’s awesome guacamole recipe for years. No need to try to improve upon perfection!
I know everyone’s tastes in guacamole, like salsa, are highly subjective. All I can say about this recipe is every time Amber invites me to a party she makes a gallon of this stuff. People actually crowd around the table, chips in hand, waiting for her to bring it out. So that should tell you something.
I can’t tell you how much I love this girl. She’s my heart. She’s the friend that calls you on a bad day and says, “Are you ok? I’ve been thinking about you.” She’s the friend you take with you to the mall when you have finally saved up the money for those designer jeans you’ve been drooling over. You try them on and walk in front of her and ask, “what do you think?” She knows you love those jeans. She puts her arm around you and says, “let’s find you something even better!” (And she does!) She’s THAT friend. You all know what I’m talking about. One in a million.
And I don’t just love the guacamole because of her. I love it because it’s a little chunky, fresh and spiced-up just right. I even add bacon to it every now and then and smother it on turkey wraps. It’s so good!
Try it. Let us know what you think. Amber is not a food blogger, but this girl really knows how to cook. And I happen to be a girl lucky enough to call her my friend.
P.S. The recipe is posted below just how Amber wrote it. She does a great job of explaining everything – and check out her nifty tip on how to use the avocado pits to keep your guacamole green!
