Some Easy Variations That'll Rock Your Guac
- People think that guac needs to be one certain way and they're having it at parties the same way over and over again. We're going to twist it up a little bit and try some different ones. We're going to use store bought pesto. Just put it in with the avocado's and you know, instantly you have guac with only two ingredients. With guac, you generally want to have the herb and you want to have the garlic. Pesto has all those things built in already. Pomegranates are actually traditional in guacamole and we're going to put some of those in and on top. I'm going to use mint instead of cilantro and we're going to use a blood orange. With the pesto one, we took a shortcut and the store bought pesto is already salty enough. But with this one, since it's more from scratch, we have to make sure to add plenty of salt. By cutting the blood orange like this, it actually gets us to enjoy the dramatic color and not just the flavor of it. For our third guac we're going to do a pizza flavored guacamole. I'm going to slice up the pepperoni so that it can get mixed in, to help that pepperoni essence get into the avocado. To round out our pizza flavors, I have some minced garlic here. I also have some grated Parmesan cheese. And used some dried oregano and then we have some crushed peppers flakes as well. For this one, since we're going for the pizza look, I'm going to flatten it out and add a few more pepperonis on top. Pepperoni, pepperonis, pepperoni. And just a sprinkle of cheese and we're good to go. Pepperoni pizza guacamole.
