Guacamole is one of my favourite foods and today is National Guacamole Day so you can bet I’ll be celebrating!  A traditional guacamole is made by mashing avocados in a mortar and pestle and adding chopped onions, tomatoes, garlic, lemon juice and cumin.  However, there are so many delicious spins on this classic dish.

I have provided 3 of my favourite unique guacamole recipes below.  Need an extra hand?  Try our delicious DIY Guacamole and Pico de Gallo which comes with premade seasoning and a fresh guacamole mix.  Simply slice the ripe avocados, dip your tortilla chip and enjoy!  It pairs perfectly with our Fajita Fiesta Family Kit.
