Who knew? To be honest, I didn’t know there was such a thing until I found it browsing the Internet. Hay walked in from school as I was finishing up this post and I jokingly asked him if he knew that it was National Spicy Guacamole Day and he said “yeah, we were talking about it in Econ today.”
And, just in case you didn’t already know it, both us sistas LOVE us some guacamole! That’s no exaggeration, either; when we visit each other, we eat it every single day, without fail. One of these days, I’m gonna have a nice big avocado tree out in my backyard!
When you buy good ripe avocados, there’s really no reason to have to doctor them up much. To this day, the best guacamole either of us has ever had was when we were in Cancun and it was just perfect ripe mashed avocados with lemon juice and a little Anejo sprinkled on top.
Here’s our version of Super Simple Guacamole.
If you like your guacamole with a little more spice to it, try Tyler’s Chunky Guacamole.
And, here’s a Classic Guacamole recipe from the California Avocado Commission.
For a little snack, I love to just eat a sliced avocado with some lemon juice and a little salt and lemon pepper sprinkled on top. It doesn’t get much better than that!
So, in honor of National Spicy Guacamole Day, go out and get yourself some avocados so you can whip up some guacamole tonight!
