Spicy Garlic Guacamole With Sriracha

Cuisine: Mexican
Servings: 3 cups
It’s always fun to get a little creative with food for a party. Try this spicy twist on a classic guacamole recipe at your next get-together.

One of my favorite dishes to prepare is guacamole. It’s quick, easy and there are so many variations you can try! For this recipe, I sautéed the onions, chile peppers and garlic. I really like the slightly roasted flavor it adds to the guacamole, and it results in a more mild flavor of onion and garlic.

Ingredients

  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1/2 cup sweet onions diced
  • 4 cloves garlic minced
  • 2 serrano peppers minced
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 2 large avocados mashed
  • 1/2 lemon juiced
  • 1/3 cup cilantro chopped
  • 1/2 cup cherry tomatoes quartered
  • Sriracha hot sauce

  2. Add the mashed avocados to bowl. Add the lemon juice, 1/2 of the cilantro, salt and pepper to taste. Add in the onion mixture, stir well to combine and taste for salt.
  3. Transfer to a serving dish and garnish with the cherry tomatoes and remaining cilantro. Drizzle with Sriracha hot sauce and serve with chips!

Chef Notes

Add in a little crumbled feta cheese and smoked paprika for some added smoky flavor with the salty bite of the cheese.
