You are going to love this easy guacamole recipe! Guacamole is a part of most of the Mexican dinners that I make.  Guacamole is one of my favorite ways to enjoy avocados.  California and Florida produce most of the avocados in the United States.  My preference is to purchase organic avocados from one of these places. Adding guacamole to one of your meals is a great way to get a boost in lutein and healthy monounsaturated fats. Organic guacamole can be really expensive in the store so I decided that it was time to find an easy guacamole recipe and make my own.


Easy Guacamole Recipe

I am part of the A Year With Six Sisters’ Stuff blog tour and this recipe is from their latest cookbook that contains 52 menu plans, recipes and ideas to bring families together.  Dinner time is a great time to reconnect with your family. As a mom of a 16-year-old and 20-year-old, it gets harder to reconnect as they get older.  Everyone enjoys sitting down at the table when we have Mexican food, especially with this healthy guacamole recipe.

Guacamole is great as a snack with tortilla chips or serve it with chili, tacos or any other favorite Mexican dish.  You can make this easy guacamole recipe more spicy by adding chili peppers if that’s your taste preference. We enjoy guacamole smooth but if you’d rather have yours with more chunks, just pulse it less time in the food processor or cut and stir it all by hand.

If you’re looking for an easy guacamole recipe with salsa, you can stir in a tablespoon of salsa before you serve this. It adds a bit more of a kick and some texture to your recipe. It’s a great option for those that want a spicy guacamole recipe.
