Roasted Bell Pepper and Garlic Guacamole

Guacamole is so scrumptious on its own but when roasted garlic and roasted red bell peppers are added to the mix, it’s even better.

Guacamole is the best excuse for eating tortilla chips.  Or is it the other way around where tortilla chips are a great excuse to eat guacamole?

This guacamole is made with roasted garlic and roasted red bell pepper both of which add such a nice flavor to this guac. 

When making this and any guacamole for that matter, be sure to add enough salt.  It’s amazing how much difference the right amount of salt can make.  The right amount of salt in guacamole is a personal preference so giving it a taste test is a must.

Fresh lime juice is added to this guacamole not only for the delicious flavor that it adds but also to help with preserving the beautiful bright green color from the avocados.

The lime juice does help with keeping the green color bright but for best results it’s a good idea to make the guacamole just before serving it.  There’s nothing worse than when guacamole turns brown.

The easiest part about making this recipe may be roasting the garlic.  It’s super easy to make and adds a sweeter milder garlic taste to the guacamole.

Let’s check out the ingredients.
