Easy Guacamole

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
garlic powder
onion powder
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.


  1. Looks delish and sounds so easy I have to try this recipe today!!!!! Thanks!

  2. I'm just as addicted to Guac. I'm super particular with mine. Wayy crazy bout it ;) And I totally think it counts as an acceptable lunch or dinner option, which happens a lot. I love our common love for Mexican :)

  3. Taking a look around your blog! LOVE it so far. Especially your tag line, I love that verse. Its something I have kept in mind during my weight loss journey. Might sound funny but I realized that I have been looking to food to be filled and satisfied, when I NEED to look to God for that. This verse is a good reminder of that! :) ANYWAYS... just had to stop by and say hello! :)


  4. Yummmmm, looks so delicious! now I have a big guacamole craving!
    Thanks a bunch for stopping by and commenting, dear!

  5. Homemade guacamole is pretty much the best thing since salsa... just saying. YUMMY!!!

  6. haha, I use that salsa trick all the time when I don't have the correct veggies on hand. And, just my luck, my Mexican (husband) doesn't like guacamole so I get to eat All of it when I make it for just us. :)

  7. this looks sooo good. i never had guacamole until like 2 years ago because it looked too weird to me... hahaha funny huh? and then i had it and i loved it and realized i was allergic... SOOO annoying.. i'm usually ok, for a little bit if i take some benadryl, but then i'm sleepy=) darn
