Gluten-Free, Vegan Guacamole

20170420T132326-0700.DSC_0031.Dpv3goMzeqp.jpg

If there are taco chips out, nine times out of ten they are going to be enjoyed with some guacamole. This satisfying, creamy dip is a staple in my house, especially during the summer month when all the ingredients can come straight from the garden.

It’s fantastic on its own and fantastic as a topping. It can be both a star and in the chorus, if you catch my drift.

Helpful hint: If you like chunkier guac, be careful not to over-mash the ingredients.

And preferably serve at a party where no one likes guacamole, leaving it all to yourself! Like they say, the more the merrier, right? :)
