Crazy Guacamole

Move over regular guacamole. There’s a new guacamole in town and it is CrAzY!

I heart guacamole. I heart it so much. I can’t even stand it. It’s one of the few foods I think I could eat over and over and not get sick of it. And believe me, that’s saying a lot for me because I tend to get sick of things really quickly. You can never put enough of it on my food. When I go to Chipotle and they put a huge pile of it on my bowl, it’s like pure bliss. We love all Mexican food in general in this house, so I am mixing up bowls of guacamole pretty frequently. I could eat a bowl of it as a meal if you let me. Now, if only the chips were zero calories and I’d feel less guilty about eating the entire bowl…

I decided to kick regular guac into something even more amazing. This is no ordinary bowl of guacamole! This guacamole has corn and tomatoes and extra jalapeno! The extra stuff makes it heartier and adds texture and more flavor. I think I need to go make another bowl. Like right now…

Crazy Guacamole

Yield: serves 4-6

Prep Time: 20 minutes

Ingredients:

  • 2 ripe California avocados
  • 1/4 cup diced red onion
  • 3 tsp. jalapeño pepper, minced (remove seeds), add more for more heat
  • 2/3 cup cooked corn
  • 1/2 cup cherry tomatoes, quartered
  • 1 1/2 tbs. of freshly chopped cilantro
  • 1 1/2 to 2 limes, juiced
  • 1 tsp. garlic powder (or to taste)
  • 1/4 tsp. salt (or to taste)

Directions:

  1. Slice each avocado in half. Remove the pit. With a knife, score each half of the avocados about 3-4 times lengthwise and then again 3-4 times widthwise. Take a spoon and scoop out the avocado into a bowl, it should come out in cubes.
  2. Fold in the remaining ingredients into the avocados. If you want a chunkier guacamole, fold in gently to avoid overly mashing the avocados. Stick the guac in the fridge for about 30 minutes and serve!

Serving Size: about 1/4 cup; Calories per serving: 124

  35. Me too, I love guacamole and no one can stop me once I’m spotted with guacamole. =) I love the corn in here. I’ve never made it and I MUST try this very soon. Luckily my kids are big fan of guacamole and we can easily finish just three of us before my husband even comes home! Tee hee.

  36. I am right there with you on the guacamole. I eat avocados for dinner when I am lazy. It is always so much better when I put some effort into making guacamole. My husband and I always argue over the last scoop and then I still use my finger to get every last bit.

    • Thanks, Emily! I eat them for lunch too, with a little salt! Luckily, my husband just dips chips in it and doesn’t really like to scoop it out with the chip. Totally fine by me!

  37. Okay now I need to make a bowl ASAP. This baby really is packed with fun goodies! I usually just have avocado and tomato in mine!

  38. I too heart guacamole! Only I’m the only person in my family who eats it, so I don’t make it very often. When I do I can sit and eat the entire bowl!!

  39. That looks FAB! I am a huge guac fan so I will definitely have to try it out! Great recipe :)

  40. I love avocados in any way, shape, or form. Like you, guac is my favorite. Great new twist on it!

  41. I heart guacamole too. I make it so often in our home. Love your version, will have to try it next!

  42. seriously I can live on guacamole…
    This looks fantastic!!
    I always have avocados and yes I am trying this next time…

  43. This is my kind of guac! I would eat it as a meal with chips and call it a day!
