Creamy Basil Guacamole Recipe: A Fresh Way to Use Basil

Guacamole can be made in so many different ways. From ranch guacamole to chunky guacamole to charred corn guacamole to whipped guacamole, we haven't found one yet we don't love. So with fresh basil still in season, we thought why not try basil guacamole. We're so glad we did!

This creamy guacamole recipe gets its herb flavor from basil, not cilantro like many recipes. Serve this fresh, vibrant guacamole with tortilla chips or cut-up vegetables.

Cuisine: Mexican / American 
Prep Time: 10 minutes
