Guacamole is the perfect snack served as a dip or it’s also great topped on salads and nachos. It’s full of lots of healthy fats. Vegetarian, Vegan, & Gluten Free.
With Super Bowl Sunday quickly approaching I wanted to share a few more tasty yet easy game day snacks.
Guacamole is really easy to make and is great served so many ways. I put it on wraps, burgers, salads, etc. I even topped my Mexican Pizza with some.
If you’ve never made guacamole before you really should try it. Probably the hardest part about it is picking out the Avocados. The avocados should be slightly dark in color and should give a little when you squeeze them.
This is what they should look like when they’ve reached about the perfect ripeness.
And that is REALLY the key to making the perfect guacamole. If you get a good avocado it really doesn’t need much.
It will usually keep well in the refrigerator for a couple days tightly sealed. So if you want to make it a day ahead you can. Mine never lasts that long when I make it.
You want to rinse the avocado in cold water and then cut in half lengthwise and remove the pit. A good trick is to just put your knife in the pit and pull out. Then scoop out the avocado flesh and add the other ingredients. I’ve made it with tomato in it as well which is also good.
So experiment with it and share your favorite guacamole recipe with me.
- 2 avocados
- 3 cloves garlic finely diced
- 1/4 tsp. onion powder
- 1 lime juiced
- couple dashes of hot sauce
- salt & pepper to taste
- optional: cilantro
Rinse avocados and cut in half lengthwise. Remove the pit and place avocado pulp into medium mixing bow.
Mash avocados slightly with fork. I like mine a little chunky.
Add garlic, juice of lime, onion powder, hot sauce and mix well.
salt & pepper to taste
You can also add cilantro if you like it. But a good avocado doesn't need a lot of help.
