Peach Guacamole

Peach Guacamole

Well friends, it’s peach season, and that means I, like every other food blogger, am adding peaches to everything.

But this peach guacamole is not just my attempt to be a bandwagon peach lover; I’ve actually been saving this recipe on my “to-cook” (well… to-mash) list for quite some time. And when the first little Utah peaches appeared in my farm box last week, I knew the time had come.

Peach Guacamole

A few months ago at work, we got on the topic of my friend’s ex-girlfriend. Or maybe we were talking about food (we usually are). In any case, he mentioned that he didn’t like this ex-girlfriend much, but that she made this awesome peach guacamole – just regular guacamole with chunks of peach mixed in.

I had one of those culinary moments (they happen so often) where my mind just explodes. Whaaaat, peaches in guacamole?! I didn’t know you could dooooo that.

So I did it. And somehow it was even better than I thought it would be, though given my anticipation, I’m not sure how that’s possible.

Peach Guacamole

Every bite of this guacamole is a juicy little peach flavor explosion. The more peach in each bite, the merrier. And the more bites, even more the merrier. If you ever thought you were addicted to guacamole before… well, don’t even try this stuff.

Let me tell you that the only way this guacamole would be better is if you multiplied the number of peaches by about 1,000,000. I am picturing a giant bowl of peach chunks just barely held together with a little mashed avocado. Yes.

Use the ripest, juciest peaches you can find for this. You will be the hero of your next barbecue!

    Haha, I love where the inspiration for this came from! At least he had something good to say about her guacamole.
    I’m trying to imagine what this would taste like and I think I like it. I love avocados and peaches so I don’t see how they wouldn’t be good together.
    I’m going to a shindig this weekend and I may have to make some to bring!

    You, my sweet gal, have solved my guac woes! I’m cool with subbing peaches for tomatoes (so I’ll do this sans tomatoes) and I am also cool with subbing garlic for onions. Why didn’t I think of pairing peaches with avocados earlier? Yay for allergy-free food.
