I like useful, quick recipes that leave me satisfied. Not too much to ask, right?
Well friends, this is one of those recipes.
Of course, I didn’t invent guacamole, and I’m sure at least one million recipes exist for it. This is simply my spin on the classic snack. It’s a perfect portion for two to share or can be used as a burrito stuffer or maybe even on a spicy rice bowl.
That is total foreshadowing, by the way. There may be a Burrito Bowl recipe in the not too distant future. Just sayin’.
I’m a huge fan of the Chipotle’s restaurant here in Vancouver. Generally, fast food isn’t my jam but this variety, where you have so many healthy options, I can get behind it. I am HOOKED on their burrito bowls.
As a food blogger, I know a good thing when I taste it. 😉
Anyways, back to this yummy guac.
This snack/side dish is healthy fats a-plenty! Healthy fats reduce inflammation and protect you from nasty illnesses. Other great sources of healthy foods that fight inflammation include salmon, mackerel, tuna, strawberries, blueberries, cherries, and oranges.
How do you like your guac?
Have you ever noticed that people have specific guacamole preferences?
It’s like guacamole is similar to peanut butter in a way. Smooth or chunky. I enjoy a few bigger morsels of avo in my guac just like I choose chunky PB. Yummy, creamy chunks of goodness.
I also don’t add any tomatoes in my Easy Guacamole. I just don’t like them. Sue me. 😉
