I am embarrassed to admit this to you all…but I used to be one of those weirdos that didn’t like guacamole. There, I said it and it’s out. I was repulsed by the thought of it as a kid and even into high school and college. But, then a friend made this Garlicky Guacamole recipe. I took the first bite and was sold! No turning back for this girl! I think the garlic flavor in this recipe is what drew me in. I’ve always loved garlic in any recipe so I should’ve known the little anti inflammatory ingredient could turn me into a fan of pretty much anything!
Since I’ve been turned onto guacamole, I’m known by my friends and family to go to Mexican and just order a taco and guac or a taco and queso as my meal. It’s really all I need to be a happy camper! Ok, and a margarita doesn’t hurt either! So, even if you don’t think you like guacamole, I’m going to dare you to try this recipe and give it another whirl!
With all kinds of big games on now and coming up (Hello Superbowl, March Madness, and even just fun game nights with friends!), I figured you could use this recipe to be the hit of the party! Here’s a few ways I’ve served this recipe:
-Topper for tacos, soups, etc
– Served in a short clear cup layered with Old El Paso refried beans, taco shells crunched up, tomatoes, ground beef or chicken and sour cream
-Served as shown here straight up with chips or for a Whole 30/paleo option with bell pepper strips
-Use as a layer for Mexican Layered Dip
