20 Best Guacamole Recipes
Is there a more perfect food than the avocado? It’s the complete package, packed with heart-healthy fats, fibre, B vitamins to help us with stress and energy, antioxidants like vitamins E, C and K, along with a host of beneficial minerals.
Avocados are a culinary dream in the kitchen, too. They swing both sweet and savory, and the possibilities of what you can create with them are boundless.
However, one of our absolute favourite ways to use avocados is in guacamole. Now that summer is here, can you think of a better way to enjoy them than mashed up with sea salt, herbs and lime? Us neither.
Of course, there is some debate as to what a ‘classic’ guacamole recipe should have. Some like to add raw onion, others like an equal ratio of avocado to cilantro (though this is a nightmare for the cilantro haters). That’s why we wanted to create a roundup of the best guacamole recipes across the web, so you’ll have a boatload to choose from!

This is like a dream come true! so many yummy guacamole recipes.. I’m in GUAC heaven :) Thank you! xo
Guacamole has certainly transgressed from the “authentic guacamole recipe” to sometimes a surprising inclusion of ingredients and somehow never tastes any less than delicious or inviting. “Seafood Guacamole” being one of my favorites!
Really fantastic idea with the Avocado Free guacamole as well. Thanks to Chocolate Covered Katie for such an inspirational “guacamole recipe” and idea.
