margarita guacamole

I have a delicious recipe for you! Quite possible two of my favorite things combined. It’s Margarita Guacamole!

aren’t avocados the best? so fresh and delicious.  i think good guacamole is one of the best things out there, and i loved this recipe.  our good friend susie tipped us off to adding tequila to our homemade guac, and it was SO good.  its optional, this recipe would be great without it, but the tequila adds some zing and you won’t regret it!

football season is the perfect time to make good guacamole…it can get the party going, or serve as comfort food when the games dont go as expected. (see exhibit: MIZZOU)

we like our guacamole slightly chunky, so we tried not to mash too much (a potato masher works great for making guac!), but you can make it as smooth or chunky as you like. we also just used a splash of tequila.  add it to taste, such a fun addition!

yum!!! i like mine with tomatoes, but everyone else in the family likes it without.  you could add to the mix if everyone is on board, or just sprinkle on top as garnish.

  • 1/2 t. fresh ground pepper
  • 1/2 t. salt

  1. Heat 1 T butter and 1 T olive oil in a skillet.
