Blueberries in guacamole… hmm. Weird? Unique? Intriguing? All the above? Listen, if you’re on team weird right now… give it a solid go, you might be surprised at how much you like this Blueberry Guacamole. And if you’re on team intrigued, then you should most definitely try it because I think your fascination will turn into love, just like mind did when I first tried it.
There’s a reason why guacamole is one of the best snack foods around. I have a lot of snacking favorites, but guacamole always seems to rank up at the top. Fellow avocado lovers, I know you feel me. So, like, why mess with it? If it ain’t broke… but basically guacamole is having a spa day and getting a temporary makeover. Don’t worry, you can still go back to good ol’ fashioned guacamole, but if you feel like gettin’ wild, throw some blueberries in your next batch of guac.
I first had blueberries in guacamole at a local restaurant here in Columbus, REBol. I don’t think I ever had the ‘weird’ thought cross my mind, but I certainly worked through the rest. First I was super intrigued, and curiosity got the best of me, I just had to try it. I fell so much in love with it that I wanted to make my own recipe so I could enjoy it at home whenever I wanted. Another perk- my kids love it too and it’s super easy to whip up for lunch or dinner. In this case, I thought it deserved the spotlight on Cinco De Mayo.
Sometimes I wish I could turn back time and add blueberries to all my guacamole, but let’s party and go big in 2020! This Blueberry Guacamole is the ultimate fiesta in your mouth. Am I sellin’ ya too hard? Or just being really convincing 😉 If you’ve made it this far in the post, I think you’re definitely in the intrigued phase. Now all you have to do is dive in!
I like to keep my guacamole basic, I mean, other than adding blueberries basic. And I don’t really like to add onion. Call me crazy but hey, less prep work. You can have this 6-ingredient Blueberry Guacamole in your tummy via tortilla chip in about 10 minutes.
