Vegan Appetizer Recipes: Ultimate Loaded Guacamole (Video)

by

fully_loaded_guacamole1_coverThe warm weather is here to stay and there couldn’t be a more perfect time to gather with friends and loved ones outdoors. Spice up your plain-Jane guacamole with this fun new twist. There’s just enough cilantro and onion to balance the richness of the avocado. And with the addition of black beans and corn, you get plenty of protein so that it can even become a light summery dinner. Also, have you noticed how guacamole takes a lot of avocados to make even just a little bowl? This genius recipe takes care of that problem, too. 🙂

Note: this mild, loaded guacamole can easily be spiced up by adding some jalapeños or serrano peppers.

    This recipe sounds fantastic!
    We go through a lot of avocados in our house, between guac and smoothies. I found an avocado prep tool that is worth its $10 price tag (I’m really cheap, so you know it’s good). OXO 3-in-1 Avocado Slicer. I even got one for my brother in law. My fave section is the pit remover. SO much easier and safer than whacking it with a (heavy sharp) knife. Target and BB&B carry it.
