Guacamole - Recipes & Leftovers

Yes!  One of my favorite things is Guacamole!  And the Guac Blend that Wildtree has is VEGAN!  Here is the ingredient list and nutritional values

The way I do my "normal" Guac is to take 2 Avocados and mash them, add 1 Tablespoon or more of this dry blend and add a splash of Lemon Juice.

Other variations...

* I sometimes add a little vegan sour cream to make it creamier.
OR
* I might add a tablespoon of Salsa or tomatoes.
OR
* I like to add onions, sometimes, too!

Some things to do with Guacamole...

Use it as a topping for a Bagel!

Add it to Hummus for an interesting Guacamole Hummus!
Here's one of my recipes for Guac Hummus:
(I haven't made it in a while so I don't have a pick, so sorry!)

1 Can (or 2 Cups) of Chickpeas
1 Avocado - Mashed
1/2 Tablespoon (or more to taste) Wildtree Guacamole Blend
1 Clove of Garlic
2 T of Grapeseed Oil
2 T Lemon Juice

I want to try these few recipes with this Guacamole Blend, too!



Need more ideas?
What to do with that left over Guac?
EASY!!

* You can use it on a Baked Potato!
* Make a Sandwich with Lettuce, Tomato, Tempeh (or Fakin' Bacon) - maybe add some Sauerkraut, even!
* Thin it down and make a salad dressing!  Just add a bit of Balsamic Vinegar
* Add it to Toast
* Sandwich idea #2 - Vegan Mozzarella, Tomato, Guac, Basil Leaves
* Add it to Chili or make a soup out of it!
* Make a Salad with it and add Black Beans, Corn, Diced Tomatoes (or Salsa), Peppers, etc
* Get a little daring an make a SMOOTHIE!

The possibilities are ENDLESS!  What have you done with leftover Guac?

    1. Prices for them around here are questionable. They aren't too bad right now but there have been times in the past year they have been $2 each! Eeeeek!

      I get 'em when I can that's for sure!

      I never take them for granted :)
