Homemade Guacamole Dip
Guacamole is great not only for a dip, but we like to heap it on top of tacos, enchiladas, chilaquiles, and tostadas too. It is simple to make at home, and fresh guacamole tastes so much better than store-bought. There’s a reason why tableside guac is so popular at the best Mexican restaurants out there!
This dip features classic guacamole flavors, with an added kick from one of my favorite new seasoning mixes, Holy Guacamole from The Spice Guy.

Homemade Guacamole FAQ
Guacamole doesn’t keep all that well. The lime juice helps a bit, but I’d plan to just make what you plan on eating. If you DO wind up with some left, put some plastic wrap on top of the guacamole and press down so it is physically touching the dip. You want as little air as possible near the guac. Then, keep in the fridge and eat it the next day for the best results.
Nope! But you can omit it, and you’ll still have delicious homemade guacamole ready to be dipped into. The Holy Guacamole is just extra. 😉
