Christmas Guacamole

No matter what the occasion, the answer is always guacamole. And seriously people, what’s a Christmas party without a little guacamole? I mean, I live in LA, so I’ve gotta take advantage of the year round avocados that are available to me!

So let’s just talk about holiday parties here for a second. I’ve been a little swamped recently and I love it! I LOVE being busy. I just find myself way more productive when I have a ton of things to get done. There’s no room for procrastination. Well, unless it involved Pinterest, then it’s kinda like a procrastination and work thing, so it doesn’t count as wasting time. So when it came time to figure out what to bring to a holiday party last week, and I was only allowing myself a few minutes to whip something up, clearly the answer was guacamole. And it can’t just be any kind of guacamole!! It had to be a Christmas Guacamole because it was a Christmas party. And I firmly believe in having themed guacamole’s depending on the event and time of year.

So the Christmas Guacamole was born. It’s awesome. I used some giant Reed Avocados that were super creamy and buttery, threw in some pomegranate seeds and chopped jicama for some crunch, a squeeze or two of lime juice, some salt and pepper and voila! Christmas Guacamole was born.

  1. California Avocados Direct – already an FB fan! Thanks for the reminder to visit their site, even here in TX our store-stocked avocados are looking a little dismal.

  2. Guacamole for sure and sometimes I mix avocado with lime juice and sour cream to make a delicious topping for hot Mexican food entrees. YUM.

  3. This is awesome! I love guacamole! Actually I just love avocados of any style. I have one waiting at home for me that I cannot wait to eat, sliced open with a butter knife, with its delicious insides spooned out and cut into salted chunks. DeLIcious.

  4. I am a California girl so I could stand a little avocado with everything! My favorite, though, is some smashed avo on a piece of toasted SF Sourdough Bread, and then sprinkled with a little garlic salt. I also have a favorite salad I make with red leaf lettuce, green onions, diced avocado and some lemon juice and olive oil. Delightful!

  5. I love avocados and put them into a lot of recipes. My guacamole always has chiles and tomatoes chopped in it – but WOW! Jicama? Going to have to try that one. Sounds wonderful and I just happen to have a big pomegranate sitting on the counter.

    One of my other recipes that I like with avocados is a soup. It uses rotisserie chicken – shredded. You pile the shredded chicken in a bowl, add chopped tomato, green onion, some grated cheese, some chopped red onion for crunch (hmmm, jicama would work too) and roasted chile, and then pour hot chicken broth over it all. Squeeze on lime juice and then add chopped avocado and perhaps some baked tortilla strips. Serious comfort food. I usually add a little cumin to the broth. Love this when I’m sick – just have difficulty getting the energy to do all the chopping, although it truly isn’t much!

  6. Naturally I love guacamole, but I also like avocado deviled eggs. A great Christmas colored appetizer! avocado tacos (no meat!) are yummy too.

  7. I’m with you, Gaby–guacamole is my favorite. I like to mix it up on occasion and try different spices. :) I would eat avocados all year long, but sadly East Texas does not have the growing season patterns to sustain my addiction all year long. Love your recipes!

  8. Oh my gosh I would have never thought of holiday guacamole! If I won I would use the avacado as sandwich and salad toppers. I love making chicken and hummus wraps with avacado for lunch!

  9. My in-laws just brought me a couple of those giant avocados from a farm out in Bonsall. I was actually planning to come by your blog for creative ideas to use them. :-) For me, it’s usually guac but lately I’ve also been making this fantastic green goddess rice, which is basically a thinned out guac with lots of basil or cilantro, tossed with jasmine rice. Amazing!

  10. I had avocado on a burger tonight! However, i can just cut one up and sprinkle salt on it and be happy.

  11. I love, love, love avocados! And I know there is so much you can do with them, but I prefer them straight up on a sandwich – especially a BLT, or a turkey and tomato sandwich; or in a simple guacamole served with crunchy lime and salt tostitos… yum, yum, yum!

  12. I would probably have to say make guacamole, but if I had to post something somewhat original, I love to just spread avocado with some salt and lemon juice on a piece of whole wheat toast for a healthy afternoon snack. Its really yummy and filling.

  13. All you need is four things for the perfect sandwich – some thick wheat bread, turkey, cream cheese, avocado. Throw some sprouts on if you’re feelin’ it. Delicious.

  14. What would I do with sudden wealth in the form of avocados? Gosh, I’d slice them and put them on top of a spinach/wild greens/orange salad. And make guacamole, of course, I’d have to have some plain, with just a bit of lime or lemon juice. Put some in a gooey grilled cheese sandwich with some sprouts. And who knows what else!

  15. I’ve had guacamole like this before!! It’s sooo amazing! I’m definitely going to try it with the jicama this time!

  16. My Dad taught me to eat avocados by splitting them in half, removing the seed, then use the skin as a bowl, salt the alvocado, and spoon it out. I have learned to love guacamole, and sliced alvocado on sandwiches, especailly salmon made up like tuna salad. I just love alvocado, doubt if you could serve it in a way Iwouldn’t eat.

  17. What isn’t my favorite thing to do with avocados?! I love it diced & mixed with raw tuna & tobiko with a little ponzo sauce, sliced on any sandwich, topping off a whole wheat cracker with goat cheese, so many uses…of course homemade Guac!
