This guacamole is easy to make and a healthy addition to any meal! Delicious served with tortilla chips, tacos, chili or on burgers! 

I’ve been on a hunt for the perfect easy yet tasty guacamole recipe for a while now. With so many variations out there, it took a lot of experimenting, but I finally came up with a version that I love! This guacamole recipe got rave reviews from friends and family and was amazing served alongside tortilla chips, chili, on tacos, with chicken, fish and beef — yeah, we basically tried it with everything that we ate!

I love guacamole because it not only lends that creamy texture and burst of flavour, but avocados are also packed full of healthy fats, potassium and fibre! The tomatoes add that burst of colour and vitamin C, while the spices are a good source of antioxidants. Such a healthy and delicious way to add flavour to any dish!
