We love Torchy’s in this house. We’ll hit them up after Mass for a yummy brunch or pick up tacos for an easy Taco Tuesday. They’ve dreamed up all kinds of combos in their tacos with something for everyone, but one of our favorite things is to just get a big tub of their famous Torchy’s guacamole and queso for a football Sunday.
When I want guac, though, I’m not always game to drive the hour round-trip it would take in DFW (since we aren’t blessed enough to have them as plentifully as we did in Austin). As a result, I’ve come up with my own Torchy’s guacamole recipe that’ll knock your socks off because of the taste AND how ridiculously easy it is to make.
Torchy’s guac is full of creamy, mashed avocado with a touch of salt and garlic, a sprinkle of sweet onion (I personally try to find 10/15s from Texas, but use any sweet onion you’ve got!), and a splash of lime to brighten it up and bring it all together.
When I make it to eat as chips and guac, I add some chopped tomato, both for color and flavor, BUT that is different than your traditional Torchy’s guacamole recipe, so if you’re making it for some killer Torchy’s queso, leave it out!
This recipe makes what I refer to as a “Cait serving” (there’s no judgement on this blog, y’all!), but if you need more, it’s easy enough to multiply for taking to a friend’s house (or having leftovers for later… maybe. Again, no judgement here!). It’s awesome on tacos, as a topping for your favorite omelette or breakfast taco, or spread on toast in the morning for a more flavorful version of avocado toast! Better yet, add it to my Torchy’s queso recipe for the best appetizer you’ve ever served!
