Hi friends!! Today, I’m taking part in a Spring Veggie collab with some awesome food bloggers – Alexa from Fooduzzi, Liz from Pumpkin & Peanut Butter, and Rebecca from Nourished. the blog.

Each of us chose a vegetable that’s in season during the month of April and then developed a recipe around said item! I chose avocado (of course) so that I could make guacamole. BECAUSE WHO DOESN’T LOVE GUACAMOLE.

Well, I used to really really really not like guacamole, actually. I used to really not like avocado at all, in any form. But it was one of those foods that I wanted to like, so I worked at it. And now?! I can’t. get. enough.

In case you’re a guacamole freak like me, try it on a sandwich, because that’s totally LIFE-CHANGING.

Tortilla chips are obviously mandatory dippers, but I won’t tell you not to try potato chips, too. (Yes, I went there.)

Next project? Dipping pizza in guacamole. That has GOT to be good…right? I’ll report back.

But seriously guys, this guacamole recipe is king of all the guacamoles. (There’s a hierarchy, don’t cha know.) After I made it, Brig and I just stood over the kitchen table literally shoveling it into our mouths as fast as humanly possible – no lie. The roasted pineapple seeeeeeriously takes it over the top. To infinity and beyond, in fact.

I hope KNOW you guys are going to love this guacamole, as well as the other recipes below! Be sure to check them out!! xoxo

Chunky Roasted Pineapple Guacamole
  • 3-4 large, ripe avocados
  • juice of 1 fresh lime
  • ½ c loosely packed cilantro, roughly chopped
  • ¼ c finely diced red onion
  • 1 serrano pepper, seeds removed & finely diced
  • ¼ t cumin
  • salt and pepper, to taste
  • 1½ c diced fresh pineapple
  • 1 T olive oil
  • 1 T light brown sugar (optional!! you can leave it out if your pineapple is already super sweet)
  1. Preheat oven to 400.
  2. Combine pineapple, olive oil, and brown sugar in a bowl, and stir until the pineapple is evenly coated.
  3. Spread the pineapple across a baking sheet and bake for about 10 minutes, until it starts to caramelize on the bottom. Take out of the oven and let cool.
  4. In a large bowl, combine the avocados, lime, cilantro, red onion, serrano pepper, and cumin, and mash until desired consistency.
  5. Fold in the pineapple and then add salt* & pepper to taste.
  6. Serve immediately.
  7. *Note: I find that guacamole can be a bit like potatoes and beans in that it needs more salt than you'd think.

      Hey thanks, Rebecca!!! Seriously though, I don’t think I’ll be able to go back to non-fruity guac ever again! It’s just too good!
