Join 1000's of Authors at StreetArticles Today!

Is there anyone who doesn’t appreciate a good Guacamole? Okay, maybe there is, but we’re willing to bet that you’d be hard pressed to find those individuals. Most people can’t get enough of a great Guacamole recipe, and the empty Guac bowls at many parties is hard evidence of that!

What may be missing however, is variety. Most tried and true Guacamoles revolve around a certain core list of ingredients, and with good reason. The Mexican flavors represented in a traditional Guacamole are nothing short of legendary! That being said, there are other ingredient combinations that work well with mashed avocados, and those flavors pair delightfully with unexpected cuisines. To give you an idea of the potential hidden beneath unique, but easy Guacamole recipes, we’ve compiled several of our favorite mash-ups, and the dishes they work so well with.

Let’s start with the original, shall we?

Guacamole with Cilantro

Ingredients

2 medium avocados, mashed

¼ cup seeded and finely chopped tomato

¼ cup chopped green onions, rinsed and drained

1 cilantro minicube, crumbled

1 tbsp. lime juice

This is a classic Mexican Guacamole, traditionally flavored with cilantro and green onions, textured with chopped Tomatoes, and given a burst of brightness with a squeeze of fresh lime. Of course, this magnificent dish can be easily altered depending on your preferences. Chopped garlic and cumin powder often make their way into the equation, elevating the flavor within this easy Guacamole recipe. The flavors represented here work terrifically as a dip for tortilla chips, or a complementary condiment for a wide assortment of Mexican dishes, like enchiladas, sopes, and delicious street tacos.

By changing just an ingredient or two however, your Guacamole can easily be transformed into a different flavor profile, suitable for different dishes! If you like it hot, try this spicy mash-up:

Vegetable Guacamole

Ingredients

3 medium avocados, mashed

¼ cup coarsely chopped canned jalapeno peppers

3 tbsp. chopped fresh cilantro

1 tbsp. lime juice

1 package Vegetable Recipe Mix

The addition of the jalapenos adds a thrilling scorch of heat- be sure to use as many or as little as you can handle. The Vegetable Mix also adds a certain complexity and depth of flavor. This unexpected flavor lends itself well to a variety of foods, including eggs, steak and a diverse spread of sandwiches!

It isn't just small alterations that work however. This next delightful and easy Guacamole recipe takes a different approach, by incorporating fruit instead of vegetables.

Caribbean Guacamole

Ingredients

2 avocados, mashed

1 cup chopped papaya

1 cup chopped mango

1 cup chopped pear

1 tbsp. lime juice

2 tsp. finely chopped jalapeno pepper

2 cilantro minicubes, crumbled

This delightful and unexpected preparation could be the recipe that wows your guests! The sweet elements pair delightfully with the savory and spicy elements of this dish, creating an amazing trifecta of flavor that works great as a dip or food condiment. For an unusual but delightful combination, try pairing this bright Guacamole with tilapia, or any other seafood favorite. A well cooked piece of fish, along with a dollop of Caribbean Guacamole and a zesty lemon and arugula salad would make a terrifically light and flavorful meal.

Guacamole is one of those tried and true staples that will never leave the list of go-to recipes. As with all tradition however, sometimes it pays to switch it up. The next time you’re whipping up a batch, consider making one of our easy Guacamole recipes for an interesting twist on an old favorite!
