Whether it’s a tasty snack or a way to celebrate Cinco de Mayo, guacamole is one of those easy recipes that you can whip up in no time — and that always looks amazing. Just grab a couple of avocados and an assortment of veggies and seasoning to spice up the classic green spread and you’ve got an eye-catching app or snack.
With so many colorful ingredients, it’s no wonder that guacamole is just as pretty to look at as it is delicious! I know whenever I make a bowl of guac I always snap a pic for Instagram. My boyfriend definitely knows not to mess with my guac until after I get the perfect shot (😂) — gotta show off those pops of color before anyone digs in!
If you’re anything like me, all this talk of guac is making you hungry. Whether you like it chunky, loaded with add-ins, super creamy or layered with flavor, these pretty guacamole bowls are perfect for eating, sharing and photographing!

The layers of red onion, roasted peppers, olives, tomatoes, garlic, feta, parsley and dill bring this guacamole alive with a fiesta of flavor and color. More is more!
A soft, creamy, understated guac is brought together by a combination of sour cream and buttermilk. These two key ingredients will prevent discoloration and help keep its beautiful, spring green color in contrast to the hints of diced tomato and parsley hidden in your guacamole.
An arrangement of colorful chopped veggies and sauces top off your delicious guacamole spread. This tasty bonus not only adds height but extra flavor in every bite!
Topple chunks of bright, golden pineapple onto your guacamole for a sweeter and more tropical take on this dip. The fruit adds color to the mix and is extra sugary sweet when grilled.
A minimalist take on guacamole: Blend all the ingredients together for a smooth and glossy finish that's packed with amazing, tangy flavor!
Play with taste and texture! Incorporating corn into your avocado brings out fresh, new flavors while giving you an extra bit of crunch. Don’t worry about separating all the kernels when you slice them from the cob. If a few pieces stick together it will look nice and rustic.
Instead of mashing, dice your avocados. The chunkier texture looks amazing and it's easier to scoop up with tortilla chips!
