Guacamole. Guacamoleee. Guacaaamoleee.
If you’ve seen that Subway commercial, hopefully these words are ringing a bell. And if not, I wish you could hear me saying “guacamole” with a strange accent. I hardly ever eat Subway (I’m more of a Jimmy John’s kind-of-girl), but I do love that commercial featuring their famous guacAmoooleee. Ok, I’ll stop now.
So back to the guacamole.
I couldn’t let the summer end without sharing my special recipe for this spread. And believe it or not, this was my first time making guacamole. Can you believe it? Yeah, me either. I mean, I practically pile guacamole by the spoonful onto tacos, chips, toast (recipe coming next week!) and more. And I’ve even been known to eat guac with just my spoon. No shame. I’m addicted to it.
So it only seemed natural that I finally share this Zesty Guacamole with you.

If you’re a guacamole addict like me, then this Zesty Guacamole was made for you.
And did I mention that it takes just five minutes to prepare? Yep, it’s so easy, guys. You’ll be amazed at the ease of this recipe and how fresh it tastes. After all, avocados are little veggies of magical-ness. That should be a word, right? I could eat an avocado with a spoon, and sometimes do, so it was especially fun to make this guacamole.
And the best part about this Zesty Guacamole (besides its delicious taste) is that it’s so easy to customize depending on your preferences.
I chose to add in some fresh tomatoes, red onions, cilantro, and garlic. The combination of ingredients took this guacamole to a whole new level. But if you’re not a fan of onions, leave ’em out! Hate cilantro, skip it. Love tomatoes? Add in an extra serving! See how easy it is?
Within minutes, this Zesty Guacamole is ready to be devoured. So grab those chips, prepare the tacos, and get ready to have the best guacamole ever!
