Holy Guacamole! 18 of the Best, Most Guac-tastic Recipes EVER

Truth: If guacamole didn’t cost extra in our favorite restaurants, we’d happily slather it on everything. But as much as we love digging in while eating out, we know DIYing the avocado DIP at home is just as good. Now we’re going to tell you how to make it even BETTER. With just a few wild card ingredients (grapefruitpumpkin seed!) you can easily whip up a batch with surprises in every bite. “OMG,” is right. Here are some of our favorite avocado mashups and guacamole remix dishes to try yourself at home. Better bust out the chips now…

1. Roasted Corn Guacamole: It doesn’t get much more Mexican than corn and avocados. This guacamole not only looks super pretty, with its combination of bright colors, but it’s the perfect accompaniment to an early summer BBQ. (via Eclectic Recipes)

2. Sriracha Guacamole: You knew that popular spicy sauce was going to make an appearance in here at some point, right? This recipe takes guacamole to the next level with a punch of spicy Sriracha heat. (via Damn Delicious)

3. Broccomole: This just in: There are guacamoles out there that aren’t made with avocados. It seems insane, but one look at this creamy dip made with a different green (broccoli) will have you re-thinking everything you thought you knew. (via The Novice Chef)

4. Guacamole Quinoa With Mango: Any recipe roundup worth its salt (tequila salt, that is) wouldn’t be complete without a nod to our main grain — quinoa. This dish combines mango guacamole with quinoa for a filling and delicious meal. (via Foxes Love Lemons)

5. Grilled Pineapple Guacamole: We’ll see your mango guacamole and raise you grilled pineapple. Just when you thought guacamole couldn’t get fruitier, this sweet recipe threw in pineapple straight off the grill. (via Lemon + Mocha)

6. Black Bean and Sweet Corn Guacamole Dip: A layered dip of deliciousness, this dish combines black beans topped with a sweet corn guacamole, cotija cheese and fresh tomato. It’s like diving straight into Mexico, but a bit more messy. (via Iowa Girl Eats)

7. Hummus Guacamole: Two of our favorite dips in one scrumptious dish… and you can make it faster than you can say the word “guacamole.” (via Martha Stewart)

8. Buffalo Bacon Blue Cheese Guacamole: We didn’t think it was possible to cram this much yum into one dip. Buffalo sauce, crispy bacon, blue cheese on top of avocados? We just died and went to app heaven. (via Dixie Chik Cooks)

9. Mango Crab Guacamole: If you want pure decadence, then this is the recipe for you. Adding fresh crab meat to creamy, cheesy guacamole turns this dip into something best enjoyed with a margarita in-hand. (via Pip + Ebby)

10. Pesto Guacamole: Just when you thought you’d seen it all, someone goes and blows your mind all over again. This Italian take on guacamole sees basil pesto combined with fresh avocados. Simple and delicious. (via Two Peas and Their Pod)

11. Wasabi Avocado Dip: There’s spicy guacamole and then there’s wasabi guacamole. Use it as a dip, or slather it in your sushi rolls. (via Pickled Plum)

12. Guacamole Tuna Salad: Combining guacamole in a salad with tuna and roasted pepitas will have you running to the kitchen to give it a go. (via Bev Cooks)

13. Tropical Guacamole: It’s getting all Caribbean up in here. Mango and papaya are great in guacamole, and this dip combines them both. We’ll let you digest that (and this recipe) for a minute. (via Milk Free Mom)

14. Roquamole: This recipe combines crumbled blue cheese, sour cream, jalapeños and avocados. Is anyone else salivating right now? (via Baked Bree)

15. Spicy Queso Fresco Guacamole: Avocados and cheese are a match made in heaven. Add a little spice to their relationship with some chopped jalapeño. (via What’s Gaby Cooking)

16. Spicy Mango Mint: You like it a-spicy. We’ll give it to you a-spicy. (via Brit + Co.)

17. Chunky Citrus Guacamole: You may have heard of lime juice in your guacamole, but have you ever tried orange juice? This guacamole combines the wonderful citrus flavors of orange and lime and the smokiness of paprika and chilli powder. (via Foodie Crush)

18. Edamame Guacamole: Twice the greens equals twice the deliciousness in this dip that blitzes avocados with edamame beans. It tastes totally unhealthy, which our favorite healthy dishes always do. (via Two Peas and Their Pod)
