Guacamole is snacking perfection. Unfortunately—if you haven’t noticed—avocado prices are still sky-high, turning the delicious dip into something that feels like it should be reserved for special occasions. The good news is you don’t need avocados to get to make something as good as guacamole—not when mockamole is an option.
Mockamole basically has the same vibe as guacamole, just without avocados. It’s still creamy with just the right amount of chunkiness to be scooped up by tortilla chips, but it’s made with other healthy ingredients that won’t break the bank. In fact, there’s a good chance you’ve already had it without even realizing it: Some restaurants whip up a faux guacamole when the costs get too high—usually without telling customers. (Not cool.)
Even though it might not seem like anything could possibly replace avocados, these mockamole recipes are completely worthy of your attention.
