This fun twist on classic guacamole comes together in just 10 minutes, uses a frozen veggie to bulk it out, and barely requires more than a whirl in your blender. Katie Lee likes her guac creamy but you can leave yours chunkier if you prefer. This recipe is easy to customize. Stir in some chopped red onions, spicy peppers, or tomatoes for a pop of color, flavor, and texture. Serve with chips and fresh veggie sticks, or set out a platter of halved sweet baby peppers filled with the guacamole.
