This recipe combines two of my favorite ingredients: avocado and tequila—holy guacamole! In case you need another reason to love avocados, this green superfruit (yes, it’s actually considered a fruit) is rich in fiber and heart-healthy monounsaturated fat, which helps raise good cholesterol and lower bad cholesterol. Serve this mashed and spiked avocado delight in a margarita glass complete with a salted rim, surrounded by whole grain tortilla chips and crunchy carrot sticks. Dip away.

  • Prep time
  • Total Time
This recipe makes 2.5 cups
  • • 3 avocados, peeled and pitted (2 mashed and one chopped for texture)
  • • ½ cup finely chopped red onion
  • • ½ cup finely chopped tomatoes
  • • 2 tablespoons lime juice (about 2 limes)
  • • 3 to 4 tablespoons minced cilantro
  • • 1 jalapeno, seeded and finely chopped
  • • ½ teaspoon garlic powder
  • • ½ teaspoon ground cumin
  • • ¾ teaspoon kosher salt
  • • 2 tablespoons tequila*
  • • ¼ teaspoon cayenne, optional

*You can add more tequila, though, this will water down the dip and change the flavor, so add a little bit at a time until you reach your desired amount.


Add all of the ingredients in a mixing bowl and combine. Add a dash of optional cayenne to kick up the heat. For a full margarita theme, serve your guacamole in a bowl or wide cocktail glass with a salted rim.
