super guacamole

It’s national guacamole day so I pulled out a classic! I think I make the best guacamole. But then again, everyone thinks they make the best guacamole. Here’s my favorite version because it really packs a punch with added protein and is great as its own meal with organic corn chips, veggie sticks, in a wrap, or stuffed inside a baked sweet potato!

Recipe Notes

hot tip: if you're not serving it right away put the avocado pit in the middle of the bowl of guacamole to keep it from going brown and refrigerate.
