Winner Announced! Homemade Guacamole Contest

Updating this post to announce that while it was a very close contest, Brandie’s Tropical Guacamole takes home the Grand Prize. Congrats to all our finalists!

Homemade Guacamole Recipe Contest

We had so many fabulous homemade guacamole recipes submitted by our readers for our Homemade Guacamole Recipe Contest, it was hard for our panel to choose just three finalists. Participants submitted their recipe for a chance to win prizes from our friends at Paradise Grove including one avocado gift basket for each finalist and a avocado-of-the-month gift prize for the grand prize winner.

Our Three Finalists!

So, after much review and taste-testing, below are our three finalists who will each receive a beautiful avocado basket from Paradise Grove.  If you’re in the mood for good homemade guacamole this Cinco de Mayo, none of these recipes will let you down!


Finalist #1:  Debby Mitchell with “Guaca-Guacamole”

Debby had a pomegranate tree in their yard and decided to use this in her guacamole.  No pomegranates?  No problem- Debby says, you can substitute with dried cranberries!  Read Debby’s recipe here and vote by leaving a comment on her recipe post (not this one):
