Fresh and Simple Guacamole

Good Morning Ladies!

My name is Haylee and I will be contributing to STC with recipes, christian living, and ministry posts.  I cannot wait to get to know each one of you and hear from y’all! 

Warning: I will use the word “Y’all” a lot, so I apologize in advance.  I’m way down South in Baton Rouge, LA and it is a habit that is hard to break. 🙂

Since Cinco De Mayo is on Monday I figured I would get into the fiesta spirit with my delicious and easy guacamole recipe.  I am going to give you two versions; the fresh one and the simple one.  The simple one is for when you don’t have a tomato and onion on hand.  Once I mastered how to make guacamole I found myself whipping it up once a week, it is soo yummy. Don’t y’all think Mexican should be its own food group? I could eat it every day. 

Fresh and Simple Guacamole | Satisfaction Through Christ

::Fresh::

2 Ripe Haas Avocados. You can tell if they’re ripe if they are slightly squishy.
1-2 tablespoons of diced tomato
2 Teaspoons of minced red onion. You can use white or yellow too, I use a red onion because it has a bit more of a kick to it.
1/2 Teaspoon of Garlic Salt, you can use minced garlic from a jar or garlic powder
Salt and Pepper to taste
Tony Chacheries to taste
Mix ingredients together

 
 

::Simple::

2 Ripe Haas Avocados
1-2 Tablespoons of drained Rotel
Salt and Pepper
1/2 teaspoon Garlic Salt
Mix ingredients together

Before the ingredients are mixed together
 
Guacamole is something that you can tailor to fit your own taste.  For example, my sister puts more onion, and I use more Garlic and Salt.  Most of the time I don’t even measure the ingredients, that is what makes Guacamole so easy.

::Tips::

When mashing the avocados use a fork instead of stirring to keep it a tad chunky for a more authentic flavor. 

Use a lime to squeeze some juice onto the guacamole to keep the avocados from browning. If you don’t have a lime, use the pit from the avocado and place it in the middle, then wrap the bowl in plastic wrap.

 

I am trying to be more health conscious so instead of using chips, I eat guacamole with endives. They are mini lettuce boats that you can get at any grocery store. They are colorful and so satisfying.  They have the crunch of a chip so you don’t feel like you are missing out 🙂 Below is my guacamole with the endives. They look like giant flower petals! Don’t you love how God is so creative!!  Have a great weekend!

      Hey Kelly! My aunt made some this weekend with only avocado, red onion, jalapeños, and cilantro. So if there is no Rotel try those, but I’m sure if the bell pepper is chopped finely then it would be pretty tasty in the guacamole. Let me know if you end up making it!

We're eager to hear your thoughts! --Let's chat--
