10 Amazing Recipes to Help You Celebrate National Guacamole Day

Today is National Guacamole Day, a.k.a. the Best Day Ever. Here at Shape, we&aposre firmly in the camp that simple is best, but everyone has a different idea of what really "makes" guacamole. Whether you prefer mild, spicy, savory, or a sweet flavor, there&aposs a recipe for you on this list. Scroll down for 10 mouthwatering different guacamole recipes and get ready to carretear (that&aposs slang for &aposparty&apos).

1. Roberto Santiba༞z&apos classic guacamole. Often considered the man who made Mexican food in New York trendy, Santiba༞z says he never mashes up the avocado in guacamole completely, he only "crushes up enough of it to warrant it consideration as a dip rather than a salad," he told Food52.

2. Spicy bacon guacamole. We know bacon&aposs not the healthiest snack option, but hey, today&aposs a holiday, right? Trust us, the bacon and pickled jalapeño in this recipe form a combination you don&apost want to miss out on.

3. Mango pomegranate guacamole. Like a little sweet with your savory? This recipe folds in tart mango and crunchy pomegranate seeds for a rainbow-colored dip that&aposs chock-full of nutrients and flavor.

4. Copycat Chipotle guacamole. Say what you will about Chipotle, but its guacamole is positively addictive. PopSugar Food went behind the scenes with founder Steve Ells and got the secret ingredient the company swears by in its popular dip.

5. Rachael Ray&aposs apple and almond guac. This recipe is a little crunchy, a little creamy, always delicious.

6. Celery-spiked guac with chiles. The Serrano chiles and garlic add a little heat to this recipe, while the fresh celery cools it down for a combination that packs a powerful punch of flavor.

7. Fully loaded guacamole. This recipe from Valerie&aposs Kitchen is technially a little more like a salad than guacamole, but we&aposll allow it on the list for two reasons: One, it&aposs great to make in large batches (can you say party time?), and second, it&aposs literally loaded with healthy veggies like corn, bell peppers, and jicama.

8. Grilled guacamole with parmesan and basil. Ditch the cilantro, lime juice, and onions, and swap in parmesan, olive oil, and basil for a buttery, Italian-inspired spread instead. Grilling the avocados before mashing will add an extra layer of depth to the finished result.

9. Guacamole with margarita coulis. Has it been one of those days? You&aposre in luck: Now you can get your buzz on while eating with this tequila-laced recipe from the Food Network.

10. Blazing hot habanero guac. This one is not for the faint of heart, but if your tastebuds could use a new challenge, go for it.

Food on Friday

It must be a couple of months since I last wrote a Food on Friday post so for today I originally decided that I was just going to choose some recipes that I really like the sound of, rather trying to stick to a theme.

Well actually, there will be a bit of a theme, I wanted to feature dishes which are pretty easy, don’t take so long to prepare, and will taste really good on a warm, early summer day. But, quite by accident there’s a lot of avocado this week. Must be something to do with some Mexican festival that happens tomorrow.

First up this week, from Tieghan at Half Baked Harvest, we have these cool baked egg crepes with spring herbs and avocado. You should really make your own crepes, but you can buy crepes at stores like Trader Joe’s, and just assemble the fillings. This 25 minute dish will make a great brunch on any nice early summer’s day.

Beyond Basic Guacamole: 11 Loaded Recipes Perfect for the Super Bowl

Guacamole is one of my favorite foods ever. Heck, if I had to make a list of my most beloved things in this world, period, it would still be high up there, right behind sunsets and puppies. I love making it, and have avocados and limes at the ready pretty much all the time, just in case a craving strikes.

Being an avid guacamole fan, I can’t help but cry a bit on the inside any time I head to a get-together and see a plastic tub of store-bought stuff set out. I appreciate the thought, but c’mon, you can do so much better. Real-deal guacamole is so easy to make and way fresher and tastier than that sad, browning sludge from the supermarket.

There’s one other thing that makes the homemade version far superior: Although the classic kind will always be a hit, guacamole can also be a vehicle for showing off your finesse and creativity. Add-ins and extras can take it from basic to brilliant in a flash.

If you’ve got guests coming over this game day, you’re probably going to want to put guacamole at the center of the spread. This is just the time to load it up and make it every bit as action-packed as the plays on the screen. For some out-of-the-box guac inspiration, here are 11 inventive recipes that will keep everyone dipping through halftime and beyond. Looking for more Super Bowl recipes? Check out our Super Bowl headquarters. Happy snacking!
Header image and recipe for Pineapple and Cucumber Guacamole from CHOW

This one’s a no-brainer. Avocado, bacon, and tomatoes are a tried and true sandwich pairing, so it’s only natural that they would be best friends when mashed together in a bowl. This recipe also introduces chipotles, which bring just enough extra smokiness for taste buds to take note.

2. Guacamole Taquero (Tomatillo Guacamole)

For a more subtle guacamole twist, try adding tomatillos, which release their juices for a looser condiment that’s as easy to use as a dip as it is to drizzle on nachos, tacos, and more.

3. Spring Pea Guacamole

Peas don’t just help maximize the greenage in guacamole. They also add a welcome sweetness that pairs perfectly with charred jalapeño and crunchy, nutty sunflower seeds.

4. Grapefruit Guacamole

You may be used to lime in your guacamole, but its main reason for being there is to offer acidity, which is something that any citrus can provide. By swapping in juicy grapefruit, you get all the lush, floral notes that are unique to that fruit, which are heightened even further through the addition of cumin.

5. Pomegranate Guacamole

This recipe could get by on looks alone, with its stunning contrast of pomegranate's ruby red against avocado's opaque green. Luckily, it tastes good, too, bringing all the fruity spunk you never knew you wanted in your dip.

6. Guacamummus

In this world of all manner of unholy food mash-ups, guacamummus (or hummamole, if you must) seems like less of a trend-riding novelty than a commentary on modern-day society. It’s an allegorical representation of two tribes—one of the avocado, and one of the chickpea—that are often at odds with each other, yet united in a common goal of dip democracy. Their only solution is to unite and stand as one kickass spread.

7. Guacamole with Jicama and Mango

To any naysayers who dare think guacamole is boring, this recipe's for you. Jicama brings the heft and snappy crunch, while mango—well, mango always knows how to be the life of the party.

8. White Bean Guacamole

If your favorite part of guacamole is the creamy factor, you can take it one notch further by adding white beans to the mix.

9. Celery-Spiked Guacamole with Chiles

While you could break out the crudités for dunking, things get much more exciting when you chop up those veggies and literally put them inside your dip. Studs of celery will keep your guests crunching, while spicy serranos liven things up, just in case the third quarter of the game starts to drag.

10. Basil and Blue Cheese Guacamole

Is it just me, or is the whole point of blue cheese dressing fishing out the cheese crumbles? I'd rather see those nubbins set adrift in a mash of avocado, riding a cresting wave of pale green.
Photo and recipe from Ciao Veggie

11. Fully Loaded Guacamole

This is it. This is the recipe for when you've gone off the rails and have nothing to lose. Or at the very least, you're looking at a pantry full of scattershot ingredients that would go great together in a dip.

103 Mexican Recipes (and Mexican-Inspired Recipes) to Make Tonight

The michelada just might be my all-time favorite low-alcohol sipper, thanks to its savory nature. While restaurants and bars serve gussied-up versions of this classic Mexican libation, the bare-bones basics call for a Mexican beer, tomato juice, spices (ideally the blend Tajín Clásico, which is a combo of salt, chiles, and lime), and a choice of sauces, like Worcestershire, soy, or even teriyaki—sometimes mixed together, other times added separately, depending on who is building the drink. It ends up tasting sort of like a bloody Mary, but with a more mellow beer base instead of a vodka spike. Personally, I like extra spice and acid in mine (bring on the fresh lime juice!), and a pinch of salt mixed into the cocktail serves to accentuate its flavors for an extra-bright-tasting drink.

As is the case with most any recipe, the following is really a set of guidelines—if you like more or less spice, and more or less acid, feel free to adjust the measurements to suit your palate.


Chile Con Carne

Three simple little words for such a powerful dish. Bon Appetit did a special on chilis from around the country and of course this proud little lady chose the one from TEXAS! Some Texas chili rules. Number one, no beans. EVER! Rule number two, there will be beef. Rule number three, bring on the spice. Sometimes following the rules is fun.

Chile Con Carne (Photograph by Marcus Nilsson)

Chili is practically a religion in Texas. The thick, meaty “bowl of red” dates back to San Antonio in the 1820s. By the 1880s, the city’s plazas were full of pushcarts run by “chili queens” who would lure customers with live music. And Texans may argue about chili ingredients – but purists agree that the hearty stew would never, ever involve beans.

Roger that. This chili, like most real versions, has a lot going on and takes quite some time – but if you heart chili you won’t mind one iota. I followed this to the letter and it turned out perfect. It’s beefy, spicy and yes, a very dark bowl of red. I topped with fresh tomatoes, green onions, cilantro, and Monterrey Jack cheese. YUM! I aslo served with this amazing and so simple to make Cast Iron Skillet Cornbread. The only addition I made was I added pickled jalapenos and sauteed cork kernels for a little spicy/sweet oomph.

Before the cold slips away (YAY!) make this bowl of chili today. I just wicked rhymed that without meaning to.


The alcohol molecule is the same in all types of alcoholic drinks. You may see it implied that there is something about tequila that makes people act differently that when they have a few beers or drink wine. This just isn’t true, the alcohol in beer, wine, and tequila all affect the brain in the same way.

No, not necessarily. It just has a reputation as one of the stronger spirits. Many people find that the taste of mezcal is usually stronger than that of tequila, but that’s another matter. Tequila and mezcal are both in the range of about 38% to 55% ABV (Alcohol by Volume), which is 76-110 proof.


  • 4 avocados, chopped
  • 1 celery stalk, diced
  • 1-2 serrano chiles, seeds removed, minced
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 3 Tbsp. fresh lime juice
  • ¼ small red onion, chopped
  • ½ cup chopped fresh cilantro
  • Salt to taste

Mash avocados, then mix in all other ingredients.

Among the millions of Mexicans affected economically by the coronavirus are the country’s artisans. Dependent on tourism for their livelihood, they have been forced to look for alternative means of selling their creations. One option is online sales. With that in mind, Mexico News Daily is supporting efforts by the Feria Maestros del Arte, a non-profit organization in Chapala, Jalisco, to help artisans sell their products online by donating 10% of the revenues from annual subscriptions to the Feria.

Another element of the campaign is a series of stories called Artisan Spotlight that will highlight some of Mexico's talented artisans.

We ask for your support for the Artisans Online project by purchasing or renewing a one-year subscription for US $29.99, of which $3 will help artisans reap the benefits of e-commerce. Please click here for more information about Artisans Online.
