Holy guacamole! This is my go-to guac recipe—it’s the creamiest and most out-of-this-world rendition (in my #totallyobjective opinion) and will seriously guac your world. Avocado is the star ingredient and brings fiber and heart-healthy monounsaturated fats to your fiesta. It’s also a great source of potassium; half an avocado has about the same amount as a banana. I’m telling you, this flavorful dip will make your crudites and chips rejoice!

For an adult-party spin, make my “Margarita Guacamole” by mixing in 2 tablespoons tequila. It’s a fun crowd pleaser.
