The guacamole with orange juice recipe came to me because I was out of limes, but I had oranges! I thought why can’t I use an orange instead of a lime? Why not make it my own? I am sure I am not the first to make this but I was excited! The result was a wonderful change from the ordinary guacamole! The orange gives the guacamole a sweeter taste than the lime. Just a little twist on the classic! It’s my favorite guacamole recipe!
The avocado for the Guacamole with Orange Juice Recipe
I can’t tell you how many times I have gone to the store and bought an avocado and planned on using it within a day or so. Then I forget about it after a day and it goes bad. Ugh! Now I have been better at planning my avocado usage. The avocado needs to be diced. First, slice around the center of the avocado. Your knife will hit the seed of the avocado. Use the seed as a guide. Once cut, twist the avocado into two pieces. The seed should end up in one of the halves. Just twist the seed out. You can scoop out the flesh of the avocado and then dice it up.
I usually go with cherry tomatoes for the guacamole with orange juice recipe. The cherry tomatoes tend to not get mushy. They will stay together and give the guacamole some added texture.
All the other ingredients
The other ingredients in the guacamole with orange juice recipe are super easy to prepare! It is just some dicing! Remember, if you do not like too much garlic then hold some back. Don’t like cilantro? Then don’t put it in! This is a recipe you can make your own!
This recipe can be used to make tacos with the shredded pork from the slow roasted pork shoulder!
I hope your friends and family enjoy the guacamole with orange juice recipe as much as mine does!
