Jazzy Mexican Guacamole
Wanting to add a little extra to your normally pretty standard guac recipe? Why not incorporate things like corn, pumpkin seed, sesame seed & lime zest. Not only do the flavours make you feel like you’re in a Mexican bar, but the textures add a new level of enjoyment to your corn chip, taco or burrito. You will notice that we used a new variety of avocado for this guac; The Reed. It gives it a new depth of flavour that will tickle everyone’s fancy. Buttery, rich and smooth goodness. Enjoy it with corn chips or in tacos!
