The Best Guacamole Recipe Ever


The Best Guacamole Recipe


Did you know most guacamole recipes are missing one secret ingredient that TOTALLY makes it? You probably already even have it in your fridge...wait for it...itssssssssss Orange Juice. Ian won me over with his guacamole recipe and we finally got the ratios down on paper so we could share this recipe with you in time for Cinco De Mayo! You'll be scraping the bowl with a spoon when all the chips are gone! Here's the recipe:
