Best Ever Guacamole

Just 4 ingredients including a *Secret Ingredient* that will have everyone coming back for more

Best Ever Guacamole

Easy & Delicious!

We are big fans of guacamole (I mean who isn’t?) and make it quite often but I always struggled with the right balance of lime or lemon, tomatoes, onions, cilantro and the like, until a friend introduced us to her recipe… the Guacamole rocked our world and we never looked back!

The secret to this recipe? BANANA PEPPERS?! (aka Pepperoncini) It’s a game changer. It takes away the need for so many spices, limes, lemons or onions, and adds The. Best. Flavor!  Bonus: The juice from the banana peppers has some distilled vinegar and helps the guacamole from changing color and browning.  Seriously, this guacamole holds its color better than any we’ve ever made.

So add a little zing to your guacamole and try this 4 ingredient guacamole.  All you need is avocado, tomato, cilantro and BANANA PEPPERS! And it’s SO yummy!  A total crowd pleaser!
