Pear and avocados are the star of the show for this delicious pear guacamole recipe that’s perfect to serve for Cinco de Mayo this year!
Mexican food is all about guacamole for me. (And a good guacamole at that). Yes, beer, sangria, and mimosas are equally as important, but there’s just something about chips and guac. That’s why I can clearly remember two years ago, when my friend Crystal brought the most amazing pear guacamole over to a friends house for Cinco de Mayo. Yes, I said pear. Pear IN guacamole. (Trust me guys…it’s amazing). I don’t know why I didn’t think about that combo sooner. So, of course, I begged her for the recipe. But, alas, she made it on the fly and couldn’t remember the recipe off of the top of her head. Regardless, I did my best to recreate this yummy pear guacamole recipe for you guys, because it was just too good not to try to make again.
It’s a really easy recipe to make and I love the crisp pear you get in random bites. Surprisingly, the pear flavor combines really well with all of the other ingredients. If you would have asked me before trying this combo, I probably would have scoffed at it. But I was WRONG. So, regardless, definitely give it a shot at least once!
- 1/4 Cup Diced Pear, Sautéed
- 3 Medium Avocados

Begin by sauteing the diced pear and a little bit of water in a pan over medium heat until slightly brown. Set aside.
