6 Twists on Guacamole

Funky ways to mix up your go-to guac recipe

How to Make the Perfect Guacamole

Keywords: guacamoleRosa Mexicanoavocado

Guacamole is an appetizing dip that is usually quickly scooped up and finished at parties or whenever it's served. Creamy, spicy, and just plain fun to eat, this popular dish can be made in a variety of ways. In his latest cookbook, Truly Mexican, chef Roberto Santibañez plays around with Classic Guacamole, adding bits of crab and shrimp for his Seafood Guacamole and pungent blue cheese for his aptly named Blue Cheese Guacamole

Inspired by his creativity, we rounded up some other 'unusual' guacamole recipes for you to test out when you're in the mood for something a little different. (Could be the perfect party platter — guacamole six ways...)

I was really surprised to see no lime juice or garlic in the recipe from Rosa's! I always thought guac needed lime juice and garlic, but Rosa's is really good!
