Amazing recipe

Floza - Nov. 5, 2023, 6:35 p.m.

Delicious!!! (With tortilla chips as well :))

Sarah - Oct. 19, 2023, 7:26 p.m.

This recipe is my all time favorite!
I substitute rice with buckwheat and sometimes I add some nachos.

Ana - Oct. 7, 2023, 5:44 p.m.

Very tasty!
I substituted the mince with some lentils and the chipotle sauce with some plain yogurt, because the guacamole was spicy enough for me.

Daphne - Feb. 27, 2023, 7:32 p.m.

Even without the mushrooms (I'm embarrassed to say that I don't like any mushrooms at all) and extra black beans, it's awesome!

PUL Team - Feb. 28, 2023, 7:09 a.m.

Hehe we all have our food preferences! So glad to hear, Daphne 🙂

I’ve finally started making PUL recipes after a long time of just checking them out and being discouraged by missing several ingredients that I can’t find where I am, I’m being more flexible, skipping things and doing what I can and I’m enjoying the process of adding new meals to my regulars. Could I make my own chipotle adobo sauce or what’s a good substitute? How about the vegetable bouillon cube, anything I can add to make up for it?. And this is not for this one but for all the recipes that use sodium reduced soy sauce is there a big difference if I use normal soy sauce?

PUL Team - Feb. 18, 2023, 5:11 p.m.

Hey Mariandrea, I love to hear that you're experimenting, it makes cooking so much more fun and you'll learn a lot in the process 🤓 We don't have a recipe for homemade adobo sauce, but you can find some online, and we'll add it to our list of recipes to create. As for the bouillon, for sure! You can often swap out the bouillon +water for vegetable stock instead. Some bouillons also come in powdered form, so that might be something to keep an eye out for. As for the soy sauce, for sure! Normal soy sauce works great 😊 Happy cooking!

This was delicious and easy to prepare. Very tasty and I will make it again.

PUL Team - March 23, 2022, 2:47 a.m.

So glad it's being enjoyed, Jennifer!

So yummy!

Another one of my favourites that really helped me through my life as a student. I make this once a month and it is always so filling and nourishing. The leftovers work really great as a Mexican sandwich. Spread the guacamole on whole wheat bread, add in the burrito leftovers and toast the sandwich. I would then add spinach leaves to the sandwich. OOOOooo! It was so wonderful.

PUL Team - Aug. 4, 2021, 5:40 a.m.

Love all of the ideas, Rincy, and so glad you're enjoying the guacamole! Wishing you an abundance of success with your studies 😃

Kathryn - July 28, 2021, 7:30 a.m.

I've made this several times and always make multiple batches of the guacamole because it's so good. Instead of spinach, I also like using collard greens! Thanks for the great recipe!

PUL Team - July 29, 2021, 5:54 p.m.

A lovely sub, Kathryn, thanks for sharing!

Shradha - June 10, 2021, 11:13 p.m.

One of my favorites. Wish I could attach my bowls pic here. Spicy, flavorful and full of protein. And I love this quick Guacamole sauce, it takes the meal to a different level.

PUL Team - June 12, 2021, 2:24 a.m.

We're so glad you enjoyed the recipe, Shradha! For the time being, we're not able to support pictures shared by PUL community members on the website. We would love to see your creations on Instagram with the hashtag #pickuplimes though 🤗

This is very tasty for about three days! That guacamole is the absolute best and makes this recipe incredible! 😁

PUL Team - June 5, 2021, 9:48 p.m.

Thank you a bunch for taking the time to share your wonderful review, Cris ✨🤗
