Holy guacamole. You need this homemade basil guacamole in your life.
I often think I’d love nothing more than to dive face first into a pile of homemade guacamole.
And never surface.
But then again, I do like to sit in the sun and dip my chips in this guac – so maybe I’ll just choose that option, instead.
Either way, I’m happy.
It’s that time of the year again- time to whip up your favorite summer snacks and I’ve got you covered. Guacamole is quite possibly the greatest dip in the world and eating it in the summer is just beyond amazing.
I could make an avocado recipe every day in the summer and when I make my guacamole, I make an extra batch to keep in the fridge and use it throughout the week in everything from salads to sandwiches. But today I’m dipping in some of these tasty gluten-free Artisan Nut-Thins crackers for a perfect afternoon BBQ, picnic or trip to the beach. They’re light and crisp so you don’t have to worry about them getting soggy in your bag or from the moisture and heat of this summer sunshine. No, sir.
I think we can all agree that guacamole is quite perfect for summer and certainly face smash worthy and delish.
Am I right?
Make two batches. Trust me, you’ll thank me later.
