This temptingly chunky guacamole has just the right combination of buttery avocados, tartness, and heat, making it the perfect recipe for a snack or appetizer for any type of gathering. Turn up the heat on this guacamole by adding a finely diced jalapeño or serrano pepper. You can also tweak the flavor by mixing in different spices—minced garlic cloves and paprika are two solid choices. Looking for a healthy alternative to tortilla chips? Try generously cut pieces of colorful bell peppers as an easy and healthy option for dippers. This easy recipe also makes a good topping for tacos, burritos, or fajitas.
