Expert’s Choice: Jax’s 6 Best Guacamole Recipes

As the world’s guacamole expert, I’m frequently asked which guacamole recipe I most enjoy. My answer: the one made with creamy, perfectly ripe avocados. Beyond that, it’s mathematically impossible for me to decide on just one. Guac is just too great.

Nevertheless, I selected six of the best guacamole recipes from my cookbook in GuacWorld. (If you haven’t had a chance to peruse it, you should definitely check it out.)

Jax’s 6 Picks for the Best Guacamole Recipes

I’ve listed these guac recipes in no particular order — I just love them all too much to rank them. Try them for yourself and let me know your ranking on Twitter by including @AvosFromMexico in your tweet.

  • Guac Sandwiches That Are Never a Mi-Steak

    I’m usually hungry for knowledge, but this guacamole-and-steak sandwich makes my stomach grumble. This bad boy has great big globs of creamy guacamole and is topped with hearty hanger steak. It’s sandwiched between two slices of crusty, rustic bread. Yeah — it’s a plateful.

  • Mangonificent Mile Guacamole

    In this recipe, avocado and mango engage in a flavorful, nutty-tart tango on the tongue. Minced fresno chilis give this guacamole a mild heat, while fresh chunks of tart, melt-in-your-mouth mango sweeten the deal. Drizzle chamoy over the top for an extra decadent twist.

  • Tot-ally Delicious Guac Tots

    To guac tot, or not to guac tot? That is the question, and the answer is… to guac tot, every time. These bite-size, deep-fried guacamole bites are, frankly, addictive. Downside: They’re easy to share, but you’ll want them all for yourself. Upside: It’s finally socially acceptable to eat guacamole with your hands.

  • Main Squeeze Guacamole

    Guacamole is the love of my life, but I do suggest breaking out this guacamole recipe for a romantic date night. The lime juice and orange zest will put your lips into a pucker, and the combination of fresh, mashed avocados and orange blossom honey can melt any heart.

  • Coconut Your Average Guac

    Give your taste buds a vacation with a guacamole inspired by a tropical getaway. When you cross buttery-smooth avocados with coconut cream, you’re in for a rich treat. I add toasted coconut flakes over the top for a satisfying crunch.

  • A Guac in the Park

    Sometimes, with guacamole, less is more. This simple little recipe makes use of classic guacamole ingredients — with a twist. Tomatoes and basil infuse this guacamole with garden-fresh flavors, while chives and garlic provide just enough bite to leave you wanting more. True to its name, it’s easy to make and easy to love.

Consider This the Tip of the Guac-berg.

Being a guacamole enthusiast is a lifelong journey that begins and ends with one constant: ripe, delicious Hass avocados. The rest is up to you.
