Fresh guacamole is one of life's most wonderful things. There's just something about the combination of rich avocado with diced onions, tomatoes and jalapenos with just a squeeze of lime juice that begs you to keep dipping tortilla chips into it.
Okay, so guacamole is my crack.
And sometimes, I don't have onions, tomatoes and jalapenos on hand to mix in. So the trick I learned (from a legit Hispanic family, so don't hate) is to mix in some salsa! It already has all of the flavors you would mix into the guacamole all melded together in its own delicious form. So if you don't have time to dice up all the fresh veggies, this is a perfectly acceptable and functional alternative.
What You'll Need:
3 Haas avocados
salt and fresh cracked black pepper
1/2 lime, juiced
3 tablespoons of salsa
What To Do:
Scoop avocado into a bowl and mash with a fork to desired smoothness or chunkiness. Add salt, pepper, garlic powder and onion powder to taste. Mix in salsa and lime juice. Adjust to taste. Consume immediately and if, unlike me, you have enough self control to have leftovers, refrigerate for up to 3 days in an airtight container.
So easy. So addicting. Enjoy responsibly.
