Guacamole with a kick

Hi Everyone,

The past couple of days have been tiring!  I have worked 12 hour days, so I apologize for not commenting, but I promise to try to get to everyone’s comments.  I want you to know how much I appreciate them and I do read them all!

Today’s recipe makes me so happy because I was able to eat it without getting ill.  Sounds funny huh?  It seems in the past when I had anything with avocado I would get a horrible stomach ache.  But I’m a glutton for punishment so I thought I would try avocados one last time and guess what? no stomach ache!!  Woohoo!!

This guacamole is creamy and smooth just like a baby’s bottom.  It’s so good I could totally eat by the spoonful!  The guacamole that is, not the baby’s bottom.  lol

I decided to add just a little bit of jalapeno which gives it the right amount of kick!  It’s perfect!  I also added some onions, garlic, lime juice and other goodies to it.  This is perfect for scooping with chips, adding to sandwiches,wraps, taco’s and topping enchilada’s and burritos, oh the possibilities are endless.  Personally I think dipping into chips is the best way to go!!!  How do you like to eat your guacamole?

This recipe only makes one cup, so if you want more, which you will, I recommend doubling the recipe.  I went small on portion because I wasn’t sure if I could eat it, so next time you know I will most definitely be doubling or tripling this recipe!!  he he You have know idea how glad I am that I was able to have guacamole.  I always avoided it because of getting sick, but not anymore baby!!!  I’m all into this now!!

  1. I could eat guacamole by the truckloads:-) Love the kick this has with the jalapenos!!!

  2. Guac is one of my favorite condiments so I’m SO glad you found a recipe to love! I’ll have to give it a try! Hope you got some rest!

  3. Jenn, I totally understand about your working – I am a nurse and when I work, I do the 12 hour shifts so all I basically do it work and sleep and then do it all over again. My blog visiting is quite sporadic depending on my work schedule. The nice thing with my job is that when I’m off, I often have 3 or 4 days in a row off so that makes up for the craziness!
    Love this guacamole – I can eat it for breakfast, lunch and dinner!

  4. Looks good! I love guacamole.

  5. I love guacamole, and could eat it all day every day! Just had some last night as a topper on a burger!

  6. I am so glad you can eat avocado now. I am crazy for guacamole and am always looking for a new recipe to try. Thanks for another awesome recipe Jen. Oh and now you can try my 5 Minute Chocolate Pudding made with avocado with hopefully no stomach ache 🙂

    • Jennifer @ Peanut Butter and Peppers says:

      I can’t wait to try your 5 minute chocolate pudding!!! Thats on my list for the weekend!!

  7. Hooray! Avocados are too delicious to have an intolerance to…so glad you could enjoy this amazing looking guacamole 🙂

  8. Yum! I love homemade guac. My problem is that I can eat a huge bowl of it!

  9. Mmmmm I love guac, but with a spicy kick, I am even more in love!

  10. 12 hour days!? Yuck. I hope your week slows down soon 🙂 Love this guacamole! It’s one of my favorite summertime snacks.

  11. My own personal sized dish of guacamole! YUM! I can get used to that, although I love guacamole so much I would probably need to double that recipe! hehe

  12. So glad you could eat your guacamole without a tummy ache! We grow avocados on our family farm…eat them every day! Early in the season they have less oil content than they will have late in the summer. I like my guacamole made with mild salsa…those jalapenos will give me a tummy ache!

  13. I love guacamole, thanks for sharing your recipe 🙂 Found you from Successful Together’s Successful Saturdays!
