It’s officially summer, which means we’re having fresh guacamole at least three times a week. I don’t know about you, but guacamole and chips are just the perfect summer snack. And while there’s really nothing better than good ol’ original guac, it’s sometimes fun to spice things up. Whether you’re trying to impress your friends with a new guacamole recipe or just want to excite your tastebuds, here are 7 ways you can spice up your guacamole all summer long:

Edamame guacamole
Looking for a unique and high protein alternative to regular guac? Just add some edamame! Edamame is super high in protein and great for those who follow a plant-based diet.

Cheesy guacamole
Sort of like queso and guac in one. Cheesy guacamole is everything you know and love about plain guac, but with the added decadence of cheese and a hint of spice from jalapeño.

Pomegranate and pepita guacamole
Pomegranate and pepitas with guac? Don’t knock it ’till you try it. This recipe is the perfect balance of sweet and spicy! There’s a nice nutty touch from the pepitas. Plus, pepitas are a great source of protein!

Grilled avocado guacamole
If you’re looking for a recipe to impress your friends with, this is it. Grilling your avocados before making guac makes the texture more creamy and adds a smoky flavor.

Kale and artichoke guacamole
Make your guacamole EXTRA healthy (and delicious) and add kale and artichoke. It’s like guacamole and spinach, and artichoke dip came together to make the best snack ever. Plus, it’s gluten-free, vegan, and super nutritious.

Mediterranean chickpea guacamole
If you love hummus and you love guac… this recipe is for you. This is the perfect recipe to make as an appetizer with falafel and pita chips. And the chickpeas make it super high in protein!

Mango guacamole
Mango + avocados = the ideal summer snack. Adding mango to guacamole is refreshing and sweet, and the jalapeño adds a nice kick.
