This avocado guacamole dip recipe is a super easy party appetizer that tastes great and is actually healthy for you. Not a party food combination you find very often!
One of my stress-reducing party rules is to make as much of the food in advance as possible (as you can see from my tips for hosting brunch and making Thanksgiving dinner easier). Which is why I make this avocado guacamole dip for almost every party. Everyone loves them, they’re easy to make and making them advance actually makes the dip taste better.
Avocado Guacamole Dip Recipe
Avocado guacamole dip is one of my favorite party appetizers.
It’s so easy to make, everyone loves it and it’s a healthy recipe! That’s not something that happens very often with party food 🙂
Plus you can make it ahead of time, and it actually tastes better when you do.
The Trick To Making Avocado Guacamole
The main trick to making guacamole is getting the avocado out of its skin. And there is a trick to doing that the easy way.
Cut all the way around the guacamole lengthwise. Then twist the two halves in opposite directions and the avocado will open right up.
Then use a small spoon to scoop out the stone in the middle. And a larger spoon to scoop the avocado meat out of the skin.
Mash the avocado with a fork. Then mix in all of the other ingredients and you’re done!
How To Serve Guacamole
The easiest way to serve guacamole is to put it in a bowl with some chips.
I even use it as a Christmas party appetizer, by spooning the guacamole into tortilla chips and serving it with cranberry salsa bites.
