This Chunky Fresh Guacamole is a tried-and-true, traditional guac recipe in which avocados take center stage. Filled with heart healthy fats and nearly 20 vitamins, minerals and phytonutrients, avocados are an awesome addition to any healthy lifestyle.
In this recipe, these deliciously creamy fruits (yes, avocados are a fruit!) combine flawlessly with chopped tomatoes, onion and cilantro, as well as fresh garlic, serrano peppers (for a little heat) and freshly squeezed lime juice. If you’ve never attempted to make homemade guacamole before, be sure to give this one a try!
