This simple Spicy Guacamole recipe is made with avocados, tomatoes, jalapeño, lime, garlic, cilantro, and an extra kick from Sriracha. Make this guacamole as mild or as spicy as you like! 

White bowl filled with spicy guacamole set on a wooden board, surrounded by tortilla chips

I’m all for trying different foods – at least once. Sometimes one bite is all it takes to make me a convert. Other times, that first bite will be the only bite of that food that will ever cross my lips. 

For instance, I’ve eaten a raw oyster and a frog leg once – I’ll never consume either of these foods again. Recounting those moments gives me the shivers. But guacamole – that’s a totally different story.

Up until about 10 years ago, avocados and I weren’t on good terms. And if I’m being honest, I hated them before even giving them a chance. 

I think I had a negative textural perception of them. I’m big on textures and if something falls into the categories of slimy, gritty, jiggly or velvety (unless it’s ice cream), I immediately deem it as suspect.

Hand dipping a tortilla chip into a bowl of spicy guacamole

Then, during a fateful trip to Whole Foods, I was wandering around and lost my friend for a minute. When I found him, he was standing in the middle of the produce section oohing and aahing over a tub of $9.00 guacamole. 

I went over to inspect the situation and was welcomed with a guacamole-covered chip shoved near my face. Of course, I got all dramatic, recoiled and claimed I hated the stuff. 

However, I decided to take a tiny nibble – just to prove to him that I did indeed loathe the velvety green dip. But I was wrong. I actually loved the stuff and immediately tossed the pricey container into our cart. 

From that day forward, I was a guacamole lover.

This Spicy Guacamole recipe is one of the best I’ve found, and certainly my favorite. Try it at your next barbecue, or heck – on a random Tuesday night. Then come back here and tell me what you think.

It’s that time of year when I start thinking about simple summer recipes to share with you.

As the temps heat up, we’re outside most of the day, so I bake a lot less than I do throughout the fall and winter months.

Even though I’m not cranking up the oven as much as I normally do, I still want to share easy, delicious recipes that are perfect for the summer months and this frozen cheesecake is all of those things.

‘Tis the season for planting our little garden around here. I usually kill everything – except mint, that stuff grows out of concrete! – but I still try for a small garden every year.

This year we have some tomatoes, cilantro, and basil. I always plant basil, even though the bugs usually get to it and the leaves end up full of holes. Not very pretty, but perfect for using for pesto.

Elle had never tried pesto before, but since she loves pasta I grabbed a fresh basil plant at Meijer (while we wait for ours in the garden to grow) and whipped up a batch of this homemade Fresh Basil Pesto for an easy pasta dinner.

It is finally starting to feel like spring here in Ohio. I’m pretty sure the last snowfall of the season is behind us – even though it was just last week. Elle did get a calamity day out of it because the snow was so heavy it knocked out power in various parts of the city.

Everything is finally starting to green up and heck, we even have a bunny nest in our backyard. And if a cute, fluffy mama bunny doesn’t scream spring, I don’t know what does.

Another great thing about spring is that my local grocery store is brimming with sweet, fresh berries that actually taste good. Every week we load up on strawberries, blueberries, raspberries and Elle’s personal favorite – blackberries. All of which are absolutely perfect for this simple Berry Crisp.
