Easy Guacamole Recipe – A Summertime Favourite

Phew, it is hard to believe that it is already August!  Although when I look back our packed calendar over the last 6 weeks I can see where all the time went – BBQ, Birthday Parties, family outings and more.  We have had something going on every weekend so far this summer!  This past weekend was no exception with a birthday gathering to celebrate my Mom’s and Monkey’s birthdays.  As host I wanted to come up with a tasty yet simple menu that would not take me ages to prepare.  One of the snacks that we had out was a delicious yet easy Guacamole Recipe from Kraft Canada.

You can also make this with tomatoes instead of red peppers if you like.  However the variations of Guacamole don’t end there!  Why not try out Chunky Guacamole, Roasted Vegetable Guacamole, or because bacon makes everything better… Bacon-topped Guacamole!

No matter the occasion this easy guacamole recipe is quick to make up, and will disappear in a flash!  Enjoy!

  1. This looks delicious!! I’ve never made my own guacamole before but have wanted to. This will be the first recipe I try for sure!! Thanks! 🙂

  2. This looks DELECTABLE! I love guacamole – but have always been too intimidated to make it myself. You make it look easy – I will definitely give it a try!

  3. We eat guacamole every day in Mexico yet never in Canada. Not sure why that is.

    I never thought about adding garlic although the whole family loves it. One thing you didn’t add that we do is salt and a lot of it.
