 Margarita Guacamole

What goes together better than margaritas and guacamole? Nothing, that’s what! This guacamole gets a zing from lots of lime and orange juice and a real kick from a big splash of tequila. You can feel good about snacking on this guac since it’s full of vitamin C (35% DV) and good fats from California avocados, while providing 45% DV, Vitamin K and 40% DV Dietary Fiber.
