Cinco de Mayo is here and this homemade black olive guacamole has got your back for putting big grins on guacamole-loving faces.

Traditional guacamole we know has the basics:  avocado, tomato, onion, lime, salt & pepp… but I wanted to put a little flavor and presentation spin to mine, so this version I made with different colored rainbow cherry tomatoes, black olives for a flavor spin, jalapeno for a kick, and fresh cilantro from the garden.

You can use this guacamole for dipping chips, or would be great added to tacos, burritos, enchiladas, etc.   

As for the dipping, when I was stocking up with ingredients to make this guacamole I found this new brand of chips to go with it that gets as “nutrition you can trust” as it  can get when it comes to the potato chip arena:  Jackson’s Honest.

One of the more integrity brand chips I have found to date.  Made with organically grown ingredients, made with a more heat-stable oil using coconut oil (first brand I’ve seen using it) versus a vegetable oil in most potato chips that denatures quicker with heat (frying), and overall use very minimal ingredients in the three flavors I sampled:  Purple Heirloom, Salt & Vinegar, and Sea Salt.  They have other flavors too, including sweet potato-based chips.   Also love that they are a mom/pop with 4 children, and they started their company because they wanted a healthier chip alternative for their children.  Got to love that.

All three Jackson’s Honest chips I sampled were pretty tasty addicting and they would go great as a healthy chip with this homemade black olive guacamole.
