Roasted Garlic Guacamole

There are good guacamoles in the world and there are bad ones. Really bad ones.

When I’m at a restaurant, I can always tell when the guacamole isn’t freshly made. It’s got that too-smooth look, and that plastic-y taste. Ew. No thank you.

When it comes to fresh guacamole, I have no qualms with it being chunky. I like lime in it. Big chunks of tomato? No problem. Layered in a big blob on top of shredded lettuce? Let’s do this thing.

I know some people think lime, onions, and tomatoes don’t belong in guacamole. I’m not one of those people. I’m not picky when it comes to guacamole. It’s meant to be smashed avocados with tons of flavor—and how else do you get that flavor than to mix in other ingredients?

This guacamole recipe packs that flavor in. There’s no onions, no tomatoes in this one but plenty of lime and roasted garlic.

Yep. Roasted garlic.

You want insane flavor power? Roast a couple of cloves of garlic. It brings out that garlic flavor like no other and gives you a light smoky taste.

This guacamole recipe is one of my favorites. It’s simple to make and a great way to use up some avocadoes that are right on the cusp of going bad. The softer, the better.

I’ve been using this guacamole on everything since I made it. Chicken and cauliflower rice bowls, eggs, pork rinds—you name it. This is a hearty guacamole that will go the extra mile to fit with anything you want.

Enjoy!
