Guacamole is healthy and super versatile. Everybody needs a great go to recipe, this one is my favorite.
This Cowboy Guacamole is a fun variation. A simple and delicious dip, that’s loaded with fresh ingredients, and a twist on the typical Cowboy Caviar that my family loves. Super Bowl weekend is coming up and that is a great excuse to make this. Your guests will thank you!
I wasn’t a fan of avocados as a kid, but I guess my taste buds have changed over the years because I can’t get enough of them now. I have tried a couple time to grow my own tree so I could have them whenever I craved them. But needless to say it hasn’t been successful for me. So I have resorted to just purchasing them in all shades of green at the grocery store so I always have a ripe one on hand.
Guacamole is a healthy addition to any meal, and is great on burgers, burritos, tacos and even scrambled eggs. There are so many variations of guacamole, but this is one of our favorites. Just give me a bowl of this and a spoon and I am set. Whenever I make this recipe my guests rave about it. I hope you enjoy it as much as my family does.
The trick to making perfect guacamole is ripe avocados. Choose ones that are dark green and have just a little give. If you have some that are not quite ripe just put them in a brown paper bag or dark place and they will ripen in a day or two.
