Guacamole Bruschetta

On Sunday I posted 46 Super Bowl Recipes to help get you ready for the big game. If you need one more tasty appetizer to serve at your Super Bowl party, make this Guacamole Bruschetta. I am obsessed with guacamole. I even added it to Grilled Cheese. That Guacamole Grilled Cheese is the best sandwich in the history of sandwich making and this Guacamole Bruschetta is the best bruschetta that will ever enter your mouth.

I am all about simple appetizers when hosting a party. I would rather visit with our guests and enjoy the party than stress about the food. This Guacamole Bruschetta is perfect party food because it is super simple to make and everyone loves it. All you have to do is toast baguette slices, whip up some guacamole, and top the baguettes slices with the guacamole. I told you it was simple:)

I like to make the guacamole chunky so you get a big piece of creamy avocado in every bite. The lime juice keeps the avocados from browning, so the bruschetta is pretty to serve. And if you can’t wait until the Super Bowl to make this Guacamole Bruschetta, I don’t blame you. It makes a great snack, lunch, or even breakfast:) Go get your guacamole on and make this easy Guacamole Bruschetta!

And a quick shout out to my dad-it’s his birthday! Happy Birthday Pops! We love you!

    I am in desperate need of eating some avocados! I filled a bag at the store this morning, with no real plan. This looks like a great start!

    I made my own version of this bruscetta and then made it again two days later!! What a great idea! I also made the guacamole cheese sandwich and made a few people jealous in the process. Delicious! I’ll put guacamole on just about anything. What do you think of a guacamole cookie? :D

    Sounds like mine EXCEPT — the onions are cut in slivers, salt no pepper, no lime juice, basil not cilantro, no jalepeno and I add mozzerella chopped. I just get the onion, tomato, avocado, and mozzerella chopped them all and even the colors. then sprinkle the salt and basil first, then drizzle olive oil and toss. I serve with chips or baquette. I’ve had guests hide the bowl for themselves.
