It’s no secret that I am an avocado fiend.
Avocados are just my thing. Everyone who knows me know that I love them.
If you ever want to make me irrationally angry, you will attempt to remove all the avocados I have in my home.
I absolutely love to make new and tasty guacamole recipes whenever the mood strikes me. Honestly, it’s the one snack/appetizer that I can never get enough of.
Just think about it – what dish does everyone gather around at a party? It’s usually the guacamole, isn’t it?
This recipe is oh-so simple, but it’s taken to a new level when it comes to the addition of citrus.
You get all the standard flavors of guacamole, including avocado, red onion, cilantro, jalapeno, and tomatoes.
However, the addition of grapefruit juice, orange juice, and lime juice take the dip to a whole new level.
It makes the savory dip a little bit brighter and a little bit sweeter than the standard guacamole recipe.
The jalapeno gives you a hint of spicy flavor on the end of each bite, so you get all the salt, acid, and heat that you need to make your taste buds dance.
I love serving this dip up at any party, especially because it can be served year-round!
Just be sure that you are using fresh juices and not store-bought ones because they tend to be a whole lot sweeter. You don’t want the guacamole to come out too sweet!
Just the natural sweetness is all you need, especially with the natural tartness.
