Five of the Best Guacamole Recipes

Guacamole recipes

Holy Guacamole!

With the right guacamole recipes, you can create a heavenly dish that hits all of your taste buds. Mastering guacamole recipes can make you the life of any party when you bring the side dish to everyone’s delight. Benny’s Tacos is no stranger to guacamole recipes. In fact, the place of origin for guacamole is in Mexico.

At Benny’s, most of our dishes come with a side of our flavorful guacamole that perfectly accompanies your meal. There are even a few items that even come with guacamole in them, like our California burrito which comes with your choice of protein, (steak, chicken, etc.) guacamole, cheese, sour cream, pico de gallo, salsa, and French fries.

Because we pride ourselves on our classic guacamole recipe, we wanted to give you a few unconventional recipes so you can make your own version of homemade guacamole and put your own twist to your meals.

Tropical Fruit Guacamole

For this tropical twist you can serve up to 4-6 people with the proper amount of ingredients. Just mash up the avocados and add the remaining ingredients for a taste of the tropics. Prepare this dish with the below ingredients:

  • 3 medium ripe avocados
  • 2 jalapeno peppers, seeded and finely chopped
  • 1 tablespoon lime juice
  • 1/2 cup finely chopped pineapple
  • 1 garlic clove, minced
  • 1/2 cup finely chopped mango
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1/3 cup chopped cilantro
  • 1/4 cup finely chopped red onion
  • Pina Colada Guacamole

This inspiration is courtesy of Closet Cooking who came up with a really delicious concoction. What we love about this guacamole recipe is that it adds in a little bit of rum, which gives the guacamole a punch of flavor. The ingredients they listed are:

  • 2 large avocados
  • 1 tablespoon rum
  • 2 tablespoons coconut cream
  • 1 tablespoon lime juice
  • 1/2 cup pineapples, diced
  • 1 jalapeno pepper, finely diced
  • 1/4 cup red onion, finely diced
  • 1 tablespoon cilantro, chopped
  • salt and pepper

Tofu Guacamole

Moving away from the tropical types of guacamole, tofu guacamole is a vegan recipe. This kind of guacamole can even be used as sandwiches as the International Vegetarian Union suggests. Not surprisingly the softness of the tofu gives this recipe a creamy taste, which is great for people who are looking for guacamole that isn’t as chunky. For this recipe use:

  • 1/3 lb tofu
  • 1 avocado
  • 1/4 cup or less chopped onions
  • 2 fresh garlic cloves
  • 1/2 a lime of lime juice
  • 1 chopped tomato
  • salt

Pomegranate Guacamole

Pomegranate is a delicious fruit that is also a rich source of Vitamin C, antioxidants, fiber, and anti-inflammatory properties. This makes pomegranate not only good but good for you. Mash up some avocado with this special fruit and the following ingredients:

  • 2 large avocados
  • 1 cup of pomegranate seeds
  • 1/4 cup chopped fresh cilantro
  • 1/4 cup chopped green onion
  • 1 tablespoon fresh lime juice
  • 1 serrano chile pepper
  • salt and pepper

Avocado Free Guacamole

Chocolate Covered Katie came up with a really inventive way to make guacamole without the use of avocados. For Katie, the main ingredient is asparagus (of all things!) and as a substitute, it can compete with avocados! For those who aren’t used to asparagus, know that is a good source of fiber and is high in folate, as well as vitamins A, C, E and K. Unlike the above recipes, which used avocados as the base, this recipe is made slightly different. For this recipe, you blend the ingredients with steam asparagus in a food processor until very smooth (all ingredients with the exception of the onions). The full list of ingredients are below:

  • 34-36 skinny spears of asparagus, trimmed
  • 1 cup plus 2 tablespoons peas
  • 2 tbsp mayonnaise
  • 1/2 a lime of juice
  • 1 1/2 tsp minced garlic
  • 1/2 tsp cumin
  • 1/8 tsp salt
  • 2 tbsp diced red onion
