This guacamole recipe incorporates all kinds of seasonal ingredients, making the well-loved and delicious dip more appropriate for winter. From Aubrie at the Free People blog, the winter guacamole is made with roasted butternut squash and poached pears, not to mention lime, cilantro, pistachios, onion and spices. You could also add goat cheese, but it is definitely optional (especially for those with dietary restrictions).

The guacamole recipe makes a great snack at home, not to mention a fun appetizer to bring if you are a guest somewhere.

Eating produce that is in season has many benefits, one of which is that you get vitamins and minerals that cater to the specific time of year. Of course, there is also an environmental impact as well.
