Taylor’s Margarita Guacamole

First, can I tell you how hard it is for me to share this recipe?!  It should probably be called “Magic Margarita Guacamole” because I never even liked guacamole before I started making my own.  But really, what’s not to like about tequila and grand marnier?!  This guacamole is so magic that it has successfully converted many other non-guacamole lovers.  It’s amazing on chips, tacos, salads, and burgers.  Or forget all that and just dive in with a spoon!  Enjoy!!

  • Chips and other dippers
Instructions
  1. Halve, pit, and scoop the avocados into a large bowl
  2. Pour the lime juice over the avocados to slow the oxidation process
  3. Add the minced garlic, Tabasco, tequila, Grand Marnier, salt, pepper, and seasonings

  5. Gently stir in the chopped tomatoes and diced onion
  6. Serve with chips and dippers

"Taylor" It!
  1. I usually add about 1-2 shakes of the following seasonings: chili powder (my favorites are chipotle and ancho - I do about 1 shake each), cayenne pepper, and cumin (go light on the last two!)

  2. P.S. I'm not a huge fan of cilantro, but it's a common ingredient in guacamole. If you'd like to add this traditional element to your guac, just chop it up and add it in with the tomatoes and onions.

 

I LOVE to cook, bake, and entertain for friends and family for two reasons: 1) I LOOOOOOVE food!! 2) I am a people-pleaser. I get my joy and warm, fuzzy feelings by making others feel loved and taken care of. What better way to do that than with a delicious, home-cooked meal?!
