Easy Citrus Guacamole

I feel like I’ve tried (and of course, loved) about 100 different versions of guacamole over the years. I’ve tried it with pomegranates, with cranberries, with goat cheese, with feta, and with coconut. I’ve tried guacamole at just about every Tex-Mex and Mexican food place between here (San Antonio) and California. I also grew up making the luscious green dip in my mom’s kitchen for every single party or weekend football afternoon they hosted. Though I really haven’t met an avocado I didn’t like, there is one (okay two) qualities in guacamole that will keep me coming back for more: acid and salt. When guacamole has been made with enough acid and enough salt, it SINGS (#imho). When it doesn’t have enough acid or enough salt, it’s still good …but it’s not “5 more bowls, please!” good.

This easy citrus guacamole addresses the acid part of the “what makes for great guacamole” equation head-on by putting the citrus first and foremost. In addition to a healthy dose of fresh lime juice (crucial) it also has a subtle different kind of acid + sugar via some fresh orange juice. It’s so, so delightful. Though my recipe has a specific amount for salt, citrus, and (heck) every other ingredient …I encourage you to MAKE IT YOUR OWN! Everyone’s guacamole palate is different and you may find you enjoy more or less of one thing.

  1. AmaZing! I am doing 21DSD right now and will definitely make. What do you have shown in the picture that your dipping with? Chip?

  2. This looks absolutely delicious Cassy! When you say that you are using 2 tablespoons of orange juice do you mean like pre-made orange juice or do you buy oranges and squeeze them yourself?
