🥑🥑🥑 IT'S NATIONAL GUACAMOLE DAY: 15 Creative (And Delicious!) Ways to Eat Your Guac That Don’t Involve Chips

September 16 is National Guacamole Day. Who doesn’t love this rich and heavenly dip? The combination of buttery avocados, sweet tomatoes, and sharp onions, made even better with cilantro, cayenne, garlic and lime. It’s pure bliss.

Usually eaten as a side-dish, guacamole has been a part of traditional Mexican cuisine since the time of the Aztecs. Today, the dip, whose name comes from an Aztec dialect Nahuatl and means guacamole sauce, is a popular side-dish, salad addition and party dip all around the world.

Every Mexican dish craves the company of this brilliant dip, from chips and nachos to tacos and burritos.

But, if you’re looking for more ideas on how to creatively serve and devour this green concoction, you have come to the right place. Here are 15 creative, alternative ways to use guacamole.

 

WITH FRENCH FRIES 

Meet your new favorite ketchup substitute, which pairs especially well with sweet potato fries.

 

 

AS FRIES

Get the fried and creamy combo you crave without even having to dip with these baked avocado fries

 

 

IN A SUSHI BURRITO 

Make some DIY-fusion with this sushi burrito recipe which replaces regular ginger with guac ginger.

 

 

WITH PITA

Take a break from the typical pita and hummus combo with this guac-hummus hybrid dip, which will forever change party dips as we know them.

 

 

WITH SMARTBITE CRACKERS 

Put some crunch in your guac munch with Smartbite crackers. Choose from this snackilicous colours of the rainbow for that perfect, light crunch so your guacamole work of art can stand out. 

 

ON PINEAPPLE OR MANGO SLICES 

Avocado + pineapple/mango = flavor combo of the guac gods. The sweetness and tanginess of the tropical fruit just gets better when topped with rich and savory guacamole. Try it for yourself and experience the magic. Cut your pineapple into sticks instead of rings, and they’re basically a big, fruity chip.

 

 

ON GARLIC TOAST

Goodbye avocado toast, hello bread fiesta. If you’re over the avocado toast trend, revamp your breakfast with this spicy take on the white girl classic. Just spread on garlic toast like you would mashed avocado and enjoy.

 

AS A PIZZA TOPPING

Avocado pizza is great, but guac pizza is even better. Make the swap with this recipe, and you’ll never go back.

 

 

AS A SALAD 

Fact: the chunkier the guac, the better. Take that to the next level with this pico de gallo-esque recipe, which you can actually eat with a fork.

 

 

ON A BURGER 

Move over mayo, there’s a new sandwich spread in town. Put a dollop of the chunky goodness on top of your patty (we are obsessed with this Smoky BBQ Black Bean Burger or this Mexican Green Chili Veggie Burger) and enjoy the creaminess without sending your cholesterol through the roof.

 

 

WITH VEGGIES 

Chips and guac are a classic, but you can get something with just as much crunch without all the salt. Use cucumbers, carrots, celery, or any other veggie as your dipping stick, and enjoy a healthier way to shovel the dip into your mouth.

 

 

IN A WONTON

This guacamole take on delicious wontons is 👌 and you can make them with just 8 ingredients and 20 minutes.

 

 

IN A GRILLED CHEEZE 

If you like your grilled cheese extra gooey, try out this green monster sandwich. Bacon optional, but recommended.

 

 

AS GUACARONI 

What do you get if guacamole and macaroni have a baby? GUACARONI OBVIOUSLY! This BOSH! invention is tasty AF and a really really really easy plant based recipe to make.

 

 

AS A SOUP TOPPING 

Could this spread be any more versatile? Yes it can! Guacamole can even work as a tasty soup base. Puree it to make a delicious and refreshing avocado soup or use it to garnish other soups. It makes every soup it touches even more delectable. We recommend making Lauren Toyota's Tortilla Soup

 

Guacamole isn’t just dip, it’s life. It makes for a nutritious snack, and can be ordered as a side for almost every meal. And if you really want to live your best guac life, put it on, in and under everything. Yes, even your hair.
