Cheese and almond guacamole recipe

Pinterest LinkedIn Tumblr +

Toasted almonds add a delightful crunch to this creamy, luxurious guacamole, while feta or goat cheese adds a salty tanginess. Serrano peppers are slightly smaller and hotter than jalapeños. If you like your guacamole spicy, add the peppers, seeds and all, or remove them to reduce the heat.
