Margarita Guacamole

Share:

What goes together better than margaritas and guacamole? Nothing, that’s what! This guacamole gets a zing from lots of lime and orange juice and a real kick from a big splash of tequila. You can feel good about snacking on this guac since it’s full of vitamin C (35% DV) and good fats from California avocados, while providing 45% DV, Vitamin K and 40% DV Dietary Fiber.

Ingredients

Serving Size: 4

4 ripe, medium Fresh California Avocados, seeded and peeled
2 Tbsp. fresh lime juice
1 Tbsp. fresh orange juice
3 Tbsp. good quality tequila
2 cloves garlic, minced
3 Tbsp. minced red onion
2 tsp. minced serrano pepper (optional)
2 Tbsp. finely chopped cilantro (optional)
1 tsp. coarse sea salt
1 tsp. black pepper

As with all fruits and vegetables, wash avocados before cutting.
