Guacamole is my happy food. Both of my children have eaten it from a young age, it’s healthy for you and it’s incredibly versatile both in flavour and texture. The mild flavour makes it perfect to match in almost countless combinations and the texture is the same, with the ability to choose either smooth or chunky in your dish.
While I do adore a good entrée made with guacamole, I think that it shines in appetizers. Here’s a list of some of the most delicious ways that you can use guacamole to wet everyone’s appetites!
Bacon Guacamole Appetizers – Low carb doesn’t have to mean low flavour! These look like they would be the talk of your party if you served them as appies.
Guacamole Goat Cheese Toasts – Little bite size delights! Nothing goes together better than cheese and, well, everything to be honest!
Guacamole Bruschetta – Why haven’t I thought of this before? What a delicious idea, using half avocado and half chopped tomatoes.
Guacamole & Shrimp Appies – One of my favorite flavour combinations, shrimp and guacamole, in little tortilla cups.
Festive Guacamole Appetizers : Make sure to tuck this into your back pocket for Christmas, are these not the cutest little savory appetizers ever?
Roasted Potato Cups with Guacamole – These jazzed up potato skins look to die for, with a tex-mex flavour profile that is one of my favorites!
Paleo Stacked Smoked Salmon Appetizer – Don’t let the word paleo scare you away if this isn’t your current diet, this is one seriously easy – but visually impressive- an appetizer using guacamole as the base.
Split Pea Guacamole– I am fascinated with this one as split peas are another one of my favourite healthy foods. I think this would be absolutely mouth-wateringly delicious with some simple tortilla chips.
Scallop & Guacamole Appetizer – This combines guacamole with one of the most popular appetizers; scallops.
Mini Guacamole Boats – Not only are these adorable, but they are super easy to make – and to eat!
