Diversifying your party menu can pose a challenge for any host. Go too bold and many of your guests may be put off. Make only subtle changes and the same guests may not notice you changed anything at all.
Adding seeds to a guacamole provides a Goldilocks option when trying to tweak your appetizer inventory. Noticeably crunchy without overpowering flavors, seeds bring a slightly new taste and texture to any guacamole recipe.
Here are five guacamole recipes with seeds to try at your next event:
