Chips are really just soo unnecessary. I can eat this Zesty Lemon Guacamole with a spoon. It my favorite party guacamole recipe. Just a few easy ingredients and you have yourself a bowl-ful of yumminess! Pour the chips (or just hand out a few spoons)...
garlic & chipotle add spicy bold flavor to accent the creamy avocados..
Perfect mix of guac yumminess..
Lemon Guac. Limes are the traditional citrus for guac. But I prefer the bright zesty flavor of lemons. I use a good amount of lemon juice too.
Mashed or Chunky? How do you like your guac? I like mine on the chunky side. You can serve this guacamole chunky or mashed. Just take a fork to the avocados and mash them down if that's how you like it.
This guac recipe is great because the high amount of lemon juice makes it easy to make ahead of time (and it won't turn brown).
...perfect Superbowl party fare too (much healthier than that oozy orange "cheese" in a can!)
seeded chips for scooping (or heck, just grab a spoon)..
Onto my easy 10 minutes recipe!..
