Gourmet Guacamole: One recipe, three varieties

Traffic Anchor (and foodie!) Katherine Whaley shares three ways to dress up simple guacamole. All you have to do is start with her basic no-fail recipe, and mix in a few unexpected ingredients. Looking for something savory and cheesy? Try Goat Cheese and Bacon Guacamole? Prefer something on the sweet side? Try the Mango Margarita Guacamole. And looking for a kick? Just try Spicy Sriracha Guacamole.

Juice of one lime
1 tsp of salt

Mash avocados to your desired consistency. Mix in lime juice and salt.

Goat Cheese & Bacon Guacamole:

Mango Margarita Goat Cheese:
