National Guacamole Day!
Yes....National. Guacamole. Day. There is honestly a national day for everything! In September alone there is over 100 "national days" including national blueberry popsicle day, talk like a pirate day, and the one I'm most sad to have missed....national lazy Mom's day (p.s, it's the first Friday in September. Mark it in your calendar for next year) :)
Anywho, to celebrate this ridiculous national day, I wanted to share some wonderful recipe for guacamole! All listed are paleo, but that doesn't mean they aren't suited for any/everyone! They are all made with simple ingredients, and don't contain any sour cream, mayo, or anything else that has no place in guacamole!!!
Let's start with a classic, basic guacamole. Michelle over at Nom Nom Paleo has this super simple, but not lacking in yumminess version. Simple. Yummy. The End. Find the recipe right here.
Mango Guacamole? Yup! George at The Civilized Caveman has created such an amazing guacamole, it'll make your taste buds sing a hallelujah chorus! :) Visit George and find the recipe here.
If you're into the fantastic, smoky flavour of chipotle peppers, then you'll love this guacamole recipe from Kristen over at The Endless Meal! Find her recipe here.
Well now, what kind of whacko would I be if I didn't include my own version of this amazing food! I like mine loaded with veggies to have lots of texture. You can find my loaded guacamole recipe here.
Now, this guacamole is even more loaded than mine! This really is more of a salad (um...as the name of it clearly points out), and I think if you're determined to eat your guacamole with chips (instead of with veggies or on meats or a salad), you should make this kind! You'll feel a smidge better about the chips you devoured knowing they were paired with this veggie loaded guacamole salad! :) Steph at Stupid Easy Paleo tweaked the recipe from an episode of The Barefoot Contessa, and I think you'll love it. Find it here.
Speaking of chips.......what if I told you that you could make some paleo chips for your dipping pleasure? Well, I'm telling you, you can! :) Rebecca at Paleo Grubs has created a delightful chip to accompany any guacamole you fancy. Find the recipe for the chips here.
And that, my friends, is some of the many ways to make guacamole! Now, how you decide to eat it is up to you! With chips, veggies, as a topping for meats, as a mayo of sorts for building a (egg, potato, chicken, tuna, etc.) salad. Avocados are a true example of how one should not judge a book by it's cover....or a fruit by it's skin. My kids remind me all the time how ugly avocados are, and I remind them how gosh-darned tasty and healthy they are!
So, enjoy National Guacamole Day and embrace this wonderful health food!
