You are about to meet the guacamole of your dreams. That is, if you like stone fruits. Let’s assume you do.

Jalapeno, red onion, and salt. Salt is key!

Lots of stone fruit. I recommend using about half peaches or nectarines.

Mix it all together with a handful of chopped basil and then stuff your face.

Stone Fruit Summer Guacamole gluten-free, vegan // yields 4-6 servings

  • 2 medium avocados
  • 2-3 tablespoons lime juice
  • 1 1/2 cups cubed stone fruit – peaches, plums, nectarines, etc. [make sure they’re sweet + juicy]
  • 1 medium jalapeno, de-seeded + diced
  • 1/3 – 1/2 cup diced red onion
  • 1/4 cup chopped fresh basil
  • salt, to taste

Mash the avocados with a fork in a large bowl. Add in the lime juice and a generous pinch of salt. Mix together. Taste and add more salt if needed.

Add in all other ingredients and stir together gently. Taste and add more salt, lime juice, and/or onion, if needed. Garnish with lime and a sprinkle of diced red onion.

Store in an airtight container in the fridge with a piece of plastic wrap placed directly on the surface of the guac. Should stay good for a few days without browning much—if any.

Serve with chips, tacos, salads, or spread on toast.


These jalapeno infused chips [died with beets!] tasted ah-mazing with the extra kick of flavor + heat!
