Tex-Mex Style Guacamole
What I learned about guacamole is that the base recipe, like the one here, is so simple. Just a few quality ingredients all mixed together. There are about a bajillion and one ways you can fancy up guacamole. Might I suggest this spicy version with mango!
At the end of the day, a basic but delicious guacamole recipe is a great thing to have in your back pocket. I find that pretty much everyone loves guac these days and being able to whip up a big bowl to serve for happy hour at home or with dinner is a great way to please all palates.
One of my favorite things to order at restaurants is anything that is prepped tableside! I love it when restaurants prepare things like guacamole or bananas foster right at the table! I know it might sound cheesy but I love it so much.
You can easily make your own tableside guacamole at home! It’s a lovely idea to spread all the prepped ingredients and then mix them together right before you are ready to eat. It’s those extra little things that make dining at home special!
Pro Tip: Of course, you can also just prep this and eat it when you are ready! If you are making the guacamole ahead of time, be sure to lay a piece of plastic wrap on top of the guacamole to keep the air off the top. This will prevent the guacamole from browning. Store in the fridge up to 24hrs before eating.
