Our Favorite Guacamole

Just 5 ingredients including a Secret Ingredient that will have everyone coming back for more

Easy & delicious!

When National Guacamole Day is on a Saturday, we make our favorite guacamole with a secret ingredient that will rock your world!

This 4 ingredient guacamole is just avocado, tomato, cilantro and BANANA PEPPERS! Yep, banana peppers straight from a jar (otherwise known as sliced Pepperoncini ) are a game changer.  They add flavor, a little zing and keep the guacamole from turning brown quickly.  Seriously, this guacamole holds its color better than any we’ve ever made.  And it’s SO yummy!  A total crowd pleaser!
