Easy, Crowd Pleasy Guacamole
Somehow I acquired this guacamole recipe and I don’t remember why I even needed it but I made it for the first time about 5 hears ago for my new husband at the time and after his first bite I could tell he fell in love again! I tried several other versions of the heart healthy snack but I needed to be able to make it cheap, quick, easy, and often. Here it is! It takes about 5 minutes total. ENJOY!
Here’s what you need.
2 ripe avocados
Garlic salt (I only had garlic powder so I used that and added salt)
Lime juice (for flavor, and to keep the avocado from turning brown)
1. Cut open avocados lengthwise by inserting the knife in the top and rotating around the avocado.
[I wonder who decided to pick this thing and thought, that looks delicious… I mean, it’s green! And nevermind that weird, massive seed…]
I use a paper plate as a cutting board a lot if I can get away with it because I’m lazy and it’s easier to throw away than it is to clean, amiright?
2. Squeeeeeze the green stuff (I’m sure it has a name but who cares it’s yummy with or without a name, right?) Out of the skin into a container of your choice. I always use Tupperware for storage purposes. That is, if you can help from eating the total batch of deliciousness.
3. Mush the green stuff with a fork, potato masher, or whatever you prefer. Just don’t make a mess. The kitchen fairies probably slaved all day cleaning your kitchen and I guarentee they will haunt you. Been there.
4. Pour salsa, garlic salt, lime juice (real or processed, obviously real tastes much better but this is the quick version of the recipe!)
I poured too much salsa so… I just scooped it right out with a chip and helped myself. Yum!
Smush it all together and stir.
BAM! Emeril said!
It’s done. Takes a total of 5 minutes. That’s about all it takes to eat it all too if you’re not careful!
I will do a post on a less processed version eventually. But for the purpose of this recipe for my household, this one is the best!
