Sweet & Spicy Strawberry Peach Guacamole

Hi Friends!

Happy Monday! Hope everyone had a fantastic weekend! Let me give you a quick recap of mine. I barely touched my computer all weekend. Which explains why last night I had 150 unread posts in my google reader.

Instead, I did some other fun things:

We had a garage sale all day Friday
We went out for happy hour drinks with friends
We stayed out for post-happy hour drinks with friends
We took lots of fun pictures in the sunbeam that was shining on our table
We had a garage sale all day Saturday
We found a garage sale mascot
We brought the boys out into the garage to hang with us
We had a cookout with my in-laws
I played with all the photography apps I have on my phone
We rode our bikes to get coffe on Sunday morning
I discovered the blur function on instagram
We donated all our garage sale leftovers to charity
I made a menu plan for the week for the first time in about a year
We played in our Sunday night sand volleyball league
And we won icon smile Sweet & Spicy Strawberry Peach Guacamole

Oh, and then this happened:

guac1 Sweet & Spicy Strawberry Peach Guacamole

Yep…I put fruit in my guac. And I’m in love. Here are the recipes that inspired last night’s dinner:

recipe Sweet & Spicy Strawberry Peach Guacamole I had ripe avocados…and I snagged a container of strawberries while we were out running errands on Sunday…but I also bought my first bag of peaches of the season! SO PUMPED. They’re my favorite fruit. Then, when I got home and tried to make the salsa, the avocados were too ripe. So I made guacamole instead. And since I was planning to put goat cheese in my quesadillas…and fruit goes well with goat cheese, I just went ahead and threw some strawberries and peaches into the guac!

So basically, use your favorite guac recipe, add fruit and voila!

As you can see, this isn’t so much a recipe as a summer guac modification!

Before we went to volleyball, I sauteed some onion, garlic, red and green peppers and black beans in a large pan with some cayenne pepper and paprika. I diced a sweet potato and microwaved it for 1 minute before adding it to the mix. Then I stuck the mixture in the fridge. When we got home, I pulled out the veggies, scooped them into tortillas with some mexican cheese and some goat cheese and tossed them on the George Foreman. When the cheese was melted, I topped them with guac and dug in! SOOOO GOOD!

  6. That is SUCH a good idea — I love making guac but never thought to add fruit! And I always have salad with avacado and strawberries in the summer but yet I still never thought to marry the two flavors in guac! Love it.

    PS. really glad you chose to disconnect this weekend, it is SO needed now and then, right??

  13. I’m so weird about fruit being mixed into things…I have this problem with fruit on salad too. I love everything separate! But, my love for avocados, strawberries, peaches and your review might just make me do it:)

  25. This looks so yummy! Have you tried mangoes in your guac? We add it to the salsa and then mix it together. I love summer and all that fresh (and inexpensive) fruit!

  26. Love me some sweet/salty/spicy combo, this sounds so good and refreshing, can’t wait to try with some “Late July” tortilla chips.
