All of the best ideas happen over tequila. I know you know this. But let me explain.
I was sitting around the kitchen table with a few friends last Saturday night, sipping tequila as one might do on any given weekend. When midnight cravings hit and we were all frantically scouring the cupboards. For something salty. Something crunchy. Something savory. Something fat and creamy. Something so totally guacamole. But with that added kick of feel-good flavor.
And so, Margarita Guac was born. Basic guac gone tequila-spiked. With just the right basic add-ins to make a batch so good, it’ll blow your tastebuds into next year.
Which isn’t even a thing. And doesn’t actually sound desirable. But, believe me. Is.
Here’s your ingredient line-up. Looks just like regular guac, but with the addition of that tiny little shot glass of tequila.
Pop all ingredients in a bowl, add tequila, mash and stir. Leave it chunky if you prefer, or super-squash for a thin and creamy dip. You decide.
Now rim your serving bowl with agave and margarita salt.
Spoon ready-made guac into the prepared bowl.
And grab a bag of tortilla chips. The deep color of blue corn chips looks particularly stunning with this recipe. Sweet potato and multi-grain chips are also great. Or keep it simple and serve up some restaurant-style corn chips on the side.
Saturday night calls. So, mix it up margarita-style. A kiss of tequila, no hangover. Maybe the best weekend combo of all time.
