9 Fun and Delicious Guacamole Recipes You Need to Try ASAP

Today is a very, very important day. It's National Guacamole day! Yup, that's right, my favorite dip does in fact have its own holiday, and it's pretty well deserved if I do say so myself. There are few things better than that mashed avocado, and I'm pretty sure guac tastes good on everything! It's the perfect way to add some taste (and healthy fats) to your favorite dish or just eat straight up with chips or veggies to hold yourself over while you're cooking a main course.

I, unfortunately, did not get around to eating this delicious avocado creation today, but I definitely wish I did. And you will too once you get a look at these AMAZING twists on the classic from some of the lovely ladies of the Bloggers Gonna Blog Community. I bet you now know what you're going to be adding to your Taco Tuesday meals tomorrow...
