Add a Twist to Your Guacamole!

  • Add some finely chopped Kale leaves, plus a little garlic and even some jalapeno if you dare!  It’s helpful to combine with an immersion blender, blender or food processor.
  • Throw in about 1/2 can of your favorite black beans, drained and rinsed.  Add some corn, maybe a little cumin and jalapeno and you’re good to go!
  • Add some chickpeas… then is it Guacamole or is it Hummus?  Or maybe both!  Leave the tomatoes behind and instead add a little fresh garlic and cumin. Blend away in your food processor or blender.  Delight!
  • Try some fresh garlic with cumin and curry powder with your guacamole!  If you like, leave the tomatoes out. Serve with naan wedges.
  • Why not add some sriracha and fresh mango for an exciting new combination!  Without tomatoes, if you like!
