This recipe for fried guacamole is perfect if you enjoy both guacamole and fried food. Using rich, creamy guacamole as the base, this inventive take on the traditional dip is topped with a golden-brown crust. Start with a conventional guacamole mixture, roll it into little balls, and freeze it for fried guacamole. As a result, the guacamole maintains its shape and doesn’t crumble while cooking. Beer, flour, baking powder, salt, and guacamole are combined to create the dough that coats the guacamole balls. The airy, crisp texture of the beer-infused bread delightfully contrasts with the deep, creamy guacamole interior.  

The oil must be heated to the appropriate temperature (about 190°C) before cooking guacamole balls. Because of this, the balls cook quickly and uniformly without soaking up too much oil. Guacamole that is warm and creamy on the inside and crunchy, golden brown, and delectable on the exterior is the end result. The ideal appetizer or snack for any occasion is this fried guacamole. For a fresh take on classic guacamole, serve hot with your preferred dipping sauce, such as salsa or savory aioli.
