5-Minute Guacamole Dip Recipe
I grew up in Texas, so Guacamole is a staple food for me. And what's not to love about this healthy, yummy, easy-to-make dip? Which, FYI, doubles as a great condiment for burgers and sandwiches, too.
I'm always amazed by the number of guacamole recipes I see -- well, I guess that's true of any food these days! From magazines to blogs to TV shows, everyone has a gourmet version of this tex-mex staple - often with lots of dicing and chopping involved. Hmmm... I admit I have yet to find a guacamole that I don't like, but I still favor my super-simple 5-Minute Guacamole recipe... just like my Mom makes!
1 Large Ripe Avocado - slightly soft to the touch
1-2 Heaping Tbs of Your Favorite Salsa, Picante or Taco sauce
(or whatever is in the fridge)
Big Dash of Garlic Salt (Guac needs salt - this is what most recipes lack!)
1-2 Tsp Lemon Juice to taste (Lime juice works, too, just a little different tang)
Cut around your avocado to the pit and split the halves. Chink your knife into the pit and twist to remove. Peel the halves by hand (if still firm) or scoop flesh out with a spoon (if very soft).
Place halves in bowl and roughly mash with a dinner fork.
Add the Salsa, Dash of Garlic Salt, and Lemon or Lime Juice. Blend with fork to desired consistency.
See? Seriously, five minutes or less!
Serve with corn tortilla chips, alongside fajitas or tacos, or as a sandwich / hamburger spread.
Chunky Variation (may take another 2-3 minutes to chop...)
Dice 1/2 Small Onion, 1 Med. Fresh Tomato and another Avocado and fold into your Guacamole base.
