Not all guacamole is the same. We all know the difference between guacamole from Chipotle, guacamole from Moes and guacamole from Qdoba, because there are many versions of this adored dip. There are two main kinds of guacamole that most people know about, and those are creamy guacamole and rustic guacamole. Creamy guacamole is a crowd favorite, but not everybody prefers it. This is the kind of guacamole you would find in the grocery store from brands like Wholly Guacamole and Sabra. However, rustic guacamole holds true to the nutritional benefits that can be gained from eating avocado. Rustic guacamole does not include sour cream or Greek yogurt, it stays true to itself with a mixture of colorful vegetables. So, which kind of guacamole do you like?


Mom’s Creamy Guacamole


This recipe for creamy guacamole is what my mother has perfected over the years, and I have to say it is spectacular. This kind of guacamole is more enjoyable inside burritos and tacos, because its smooth consistency pairs well with beans, cheese and fajita vegetables.



1 large ripe avocado

1 clove of garlic, minced

Salt and Pepper (to taste)

Sprinkle of chipotle powder (optional)

2 heaping tablespoons of sour cream



Cut up avocado, mash in a medium bowl

Add in the minced garlic

Add in the spices

Mix in sour cream

Sprinkle chipotle powder on top



Rustic Guacamole


This recipe for rustic guacamole is what my grandfather has perfected over the years, and I love it just as much as my mother’s recipe. I do have to say I enjoy rustic guacamole on its own as opposed to stuffed inside a burrito, because nothing compares to a big scoop of old-fashioned guacamole on a tortilla chip.



2 large ripe avocados

1 clove of garlic, minced

1/2 diced red onion

1/2 diced tomato

1 diced jalapeño pepper (seeded)

Salt and pepper (to taste)
