Holy Guacamole!

Hola Chicas!

What better way to start a fresh week than by sharing a recipe filled with fresh and healthy ingredients!?

I recently picked up Joanna Gaines cook book “Magnolia Table” and had been patiently waiting to host a girls night so that I could attempt her Guacamole recipe! (I seriously have half of the recipes bookmarked…everything looks so good!) As I picked up the ingredients at the store, I had to use all my willpower to wait to make the first batch. And let me tell you- it was well worth the wait (+ so easy to make)! Out of all of her recipes I decided to go with making the guac first (because who doesn’t like Mexican food) and I thought it would be a perfect summer night app to share! (One perk of adult-ing: get togethers over the age of 22 always include great snacks and drinks that actually taste good!)

If you don’t already have her cookbook, (you need to go pick it up! I found it at homesense for a great price…like everything else I own!) I’ll share the recipes I attempt on my blog, rate them & give you my tips! Here goes:


  • 4 Hass avocados
  • 1 medium vine ripened tomato
  • 2-3 tbsp of minced red onion
  • 1/2 of a jalapeños pepper
  • 1/2 a cup of fresh cilantro
  • 1 lime
  • 1/4 tsp salt + pepper
  • (I added 1 clove of garlic and 1/4 tsp of garlic powder to Joanna’s recipe!)
  • Tortilla chips (I like using the black tortilla chips)


  • Peel, pit & smash the four avocados in a serving bowl! Leave them chunky for texture.
  • Mince the tomato, red onion, jalapeño and cilantro (and garlic if you choose to add it like I did). Add the ingredients to the serving bowl. *Your kitchen will smell SO fresh at this point!
  • Measure your salt, pepper (and garlic powder if you choose to) and add it to the bowl.
  • Mix the ingredients ensuring that they’re evenly distributed throughout the entire dip.
  • Grab your tortilla chips, do a taste test.
  • Serve with your favourite summer beverage + enjoy!

I’d rate this recipe a 9.5/10…but a 10/10 with the added garlic! Let me know what you think if you try it!

Today’s Mantra: Don’t let anyone treat you like free salsa. You are guac!
