One of the best things about guacamole is there are really no “rules.” Professional and home chefs can experiment and add all kinds of tasty additions to avocados, giving the dip their own twist. This recipe features goat cheese, cilantro and pistachios and is courtesy of the California Avocado Commission.

2 ripe fresh California Avocados, about 1 pound
½ Cup finely crumbled, chilled, fresh white goat cheese
¼ Cup chopped, fresh cilantro
2 Tbsp chopped, toasted pistachio nuts
¼ tsp (or to taste) crushed, red pepper flakes
2 large cloves garlic, finely chopped

Coarsely mash avocados. Fold in remaining ingredients.
