I'm going to be honest with you, I don't think I've ever had leftover guacamole in my life. I always intend to save some for later to add to different recipes, and then 15 minutes into my personal chips and guac fiesta, it's all gone. Anybody else have this problem? Luckily, Cinco de Mayo is upon us, and with that come buckets of guacamole. Hopefully, enough guacamole to sink a boat. Enough guacamole that you'll have to think of things to do with leftover guacamole.
The internet is no stranger to the craze of adding avocado to everything, and neither am I. Avocado, to me, is the most versatile of all vegetables. Not only can you make it into a hundred different recipes, but you can make it into guacamole, and then make that into a hundred different recipes. If ever you find yourself in the dilemma of having leftover guacamole, and you're not sure what to do with it, fret not. Take a cue from one of these delicious avocado recipes, modify with your already made guacamole, and voila. You've got yourself a brand new recipe with an extra delicious kick from your already awesome guacamole. If that's not heavenly, I don't know what is.
