Looking for a guacamole recipe that's super easy, quick to make, looks beautiful, and brings a a welcome complexity of flavors not traditionally found in your average guac? Look no further. Our Taste of California blend does all the heavy lifting for you - leave those elaborate or time-consuming recipes behind and instead enjoy the time with your guests.

Ingredients:
  • 4 medium Hass avocados (don't throw away the pits!)
  • 1 lime
  • 1/2 medium onion (preferably white)
  • 1 small tomato
  • 4 1/2 tablespoons Taste of California 

Method: 
  1. In a large mixing bowl, scoop out the contents of the avocados, setting aside the pits.
  2. Cut lime and half, and squeeze over avocados.
  3. Peel onion, dice finely, and add to bowl.
  4. Wash tomato, remove stem, chop finely, and add to bowl.
  5. Sprinkle in 3 1/2 table spoons Taste of California.
  6. Using a potato masher or large fork, mash ingredients together to desired consistency.
  7. Spoon onto serving plate, and dust with remaining Taste of California. Place one or two pits in the guac - they will help to slow browning.
  8. Add chips, and serve.
