ingredients for guacamole recipes avocados garlic lemon

The warm weather has us craving guacamole on everything! Toast, sandwiches, as a dip, as a salad dressing…we honestly can’t get enough. Actually, it’s not really just the warm weather — we crave guac all year-round. But, Cinco De Mayo is a great excuse to get a little more elaborate with your guacamole recipes and branch out. Here are some simple, yet totally party-worthy ways to spruce up your guacamole game. So, grab a bag of corn chips and get guac-ing with these three guacamole recipes!

  1. Fancy Crab Guacamole: Mash three large, ripe avocados with 2 tablespoons freshly squeezed lemon juice, 1/2 teaspoon course sea salt, 1 minced clove garlic, and 1/4 teaspoon ground cumin. Stir in 1/3 cup coarsely chopped cilantro (use flat leaf parsley if you have cilantro-haters in attendance), 1/3 cup diced red onion, and 1/4 cup diced red onion. Gently stir in one drained 6-ounce can Bumble Bee lump crab meat.
  1. Kale-Jalapeno Guacamole: Bring a pot of water to boil and add 2 cups shredded curly kale. Cook until the kale turns bright green but is still firm, about one minute. Then, immediately strain kale and dunk into a bowl of ice water. Remove from ice water and drain thoroughly. Mash three large, ripe avocados with 1 tablespoon freshly squeezed lemon juice, 1/2 teaspoon coarse sea salt, 1 minced clove garlic, and 1 tablespoon minced fresh jalapeño pepper. Stir in the kale.
  1. Deconstructed Grilled Guacamole Cups: Cut two avocados in half, remove seed, and carefully use a spoon to remove the flesh of the avocado from the skin while keeping both in tact. Set the skins aside (these will be your serving bowls!). Skewer 4 peeled garlic cloves, 4 2-inch chunks of red onion, and 4 2-inch chunks of yellow bell pepper onto skewers. Brush with olive oil, sprinkle with coarse sea salt and freshly cracked black pepper, and grill until soft and lightly charred with grill marks. While the skewers cook, grill the avocado halves until charred with grill marks on each side, about 4-5 minutes per side. Chop avocado into 1/4-inch cubes. Roughly dice veggies and garlic. Fill the empty avocado skins with chopped avocado and top with veggies and garlic and a squeeze of fresh lime juice.

A note from our CEO about COVID-19x
Bumble Bee Seafood Logo

The coronavirus has changed life, as we knew it, forever. Most people will be touched in some way by the pandemic either physically, emotionally or financially. We’ve all heard heart-breaking stories from around the world about lives that have been lost and severe financial hardships caused by the sudden shutdown of so many businesses.

On behalf of all our team members around the globe, we extend our deepest sympathies to all that are struggling through personal challenges, whatever they may be, and we offer our sincerest gratitude to all the heroes who are helping those in need.

We’d also like to add how important it is for everyone to continue to do their part to slow the spread. Physical distancing is critical, and we must all take this seriously. We use the word “physical” because staying away from people in a physical way does not mean we should be neglecting the importance of social interactions, compassion and patience.

We are one of the largest providers of shelf-stable seafood and it is our honor and our responsibility to do our part, in every way we can, to help to keep people fed with affordable, nutritious protein. To that end, we’re continuing to run our factories in the US and Canada while our partners around the world continue to provide supply.

We take great pride in being a “people-first” company, so our decision to continue operations is done with utmost concern for the people making it possible. We’ve enhanced our safety measures to meet or exceed CDC guidelines and we have increased wages in our factories to assist employees dealing with the incremental costs of working and new, unexpected demands on their households.

We also take great pride in producing healthy, nutritious and safe products for our customers. Please know the manufacturing practices we follow year-round protect our both employees and the products they produce. Our facilities have very few people-to-product interactions, all products are sterilized in a high temperature oven and then packaged in highly automated production lines.

Beyond Bumble Bee, we’re continually looking for ways to extend our “people first” approach to make a meaningful impact. With so many people in need, we know this effort is more important than ever. We’re starting by donating more than $1 million in product to food banks in both the US and in Canada. And we will be looking for more opportunities to make a positive difference in the days to come.

Finally, I want to thank you, our loyal and new customers, for your support. We hope you find the recipes on our website helpful and easy to prepare. I also want to send a sincere thank you to our Bumble Bee Team and our valued supply partners around the world for their tireless efforts, particularly those working in sales, manufacturing, distribution and all our support roles, ensuring we can keep store and pantry shelves stocked.

Please continue to do your part to keep yourselves and your families safe during this truly unprecedented time.

With Gratitude,
CEO, Bumble Bee Seafoods
