Homemade Guacamole

It’s National Taco Day! Really all that means is I have a legit excuse to eat guacamole, chips, tacos and drink margaritas. Right?

My initial thought was to post homemade grain and gluten free cassava tortillas (they are much easier than you think to make!). However, yesterday I posted in my instagram stories my homemade guacamole and I heard from a whole ton of you that you’d like the recipe.

So, throw away any packet that reads “Guacamole Mix” or “Guacamole Seasoning” and use these handful of real food ingredients to make yourself the tastiest and easiest guacamole!

Happy Food is the Best Food!
