Chipotle Guacamole

Chipotle Guacamole

I don’t know anyone who doesn’t like a delicious guacamole. There is just something about this creamy dip that keeps you wanting more. Guacamole is the quintessential party and snack food and its fantastic versatility lends itself to a variety of different preparations.

 

Since summer is just around the corner, I wanted to post a guacamole recipe that you could enjoy at a summer barbecue or party. I usually make a more traditional guacamole recipe with jalapeño, lemon or lime juice, tomatoes, onions, garlic, and cilantro.

 

Today I was in the mood for something different. I had some chipotle in adobo sauce so I decided to make guacamole simply adorned with juicy cherry tomatoes, garlic, and refreshing lime juice. This is the first time I’ve made guacamole without cilantro, onions, or jalapeño in it and the taste was absolutely amazing! My mom and I couldn’t stop eating this guacamole because it was so good!

 

Spicy chipotle pepper adds a wonderful smokiness and heat that blends really well with the creamy avocado and cherry tomatoes. The juicy cherry tomatoes really add sweet flavor that enhances and tones down the heat from the chipotle. Another good tomato to try in this guacamole would be a Brandywine or Cherokee purple heirloom tomato.

 

I only used one half of the chipotle pepper and one teaspoon of the adobo sauce to temper the heat level from the pepper but if you like it hot, feel free to use a whole chipotle pepper. Another tasty option for the chipotle pepper is to use Sriracha sauce.

 

If you like fruit with your guacamole you could add a ½ cup of diced pineapple, mango, or strawberries for a totally unique and tasty variation.

 

Avocados

I am in love with avocados! I eat them at least 3 or 4 days a week. If you read my blog regularly, you know that I have a variety of different recipes on my blog that have avocado in them. Avocados are one of my favorite healing foods. Avocados are rich in healing nutrients including high levels of vitamin C, vitamin E, vitamin K, potassium, folate, and fiber. Avocados contain important carotenoids including beta-carotene, lutein, alpha-carotene, and zeaxanthin that fight chronic inflammation and free radical damage which causes your body to age quickly.

 

Hot Chili Peppers

Hot chili peppers like the chipotle pepper are a great food to enjoy for both the flavor and the health benefits. Chili peppers contain capsaicin which is good for burning fat and stimulating your metabolism.

 

Try this tasty guacamole as a wonderful healing foods snack or at your next party. Do you love guacamole? What’s your favorite way to enjoy it? Please contribute to the conversation by leaving a comment below.

  1. Guacamole with asparagus spears! Awesome! Can’t wait to try this. My whole family loves guacamole. I have one question though. Where can you find adobo sauce? In the Philippines, we have an adobo dish which is just pork cooked in soy sauce and vinegar. I’m not familiar with adobo sauce, is it simillar to an oyster sauce?

  5. Hi Shelley,
    thank you for sharing a different version of Guacamole.

    One question: would the diced chilli ‘burn’ your tongue when you chew on it?
    What is ‘adobo’ sauce, did you make it? (is it like adobe the file converted into PDF, just kidding)

    To enjoyable snacks!
    Cheers,
    Yorinda
