I call this Good Grief Guacamole because that’s what you say when you taste it! 🙂
As most of my recipes this is super easy! And there are so many ways you can change it up and substitute ingredients when needed. I like to say there aren’t many rules in cooking or decorating or even entertaining because most of the time when you change things up it works out for the better! But, even if it doesn’t, you probably learned something…and that makes it all worth it! 🙂
You will need:
8-10 ripe Avocados
1 large red onion chopped
The juice of 2 limes and some zest
Approx 12 oz of medium fresh deli salsa (the reason I prefer this type is because it is not as “saucy” as normal salsas. You could also use a pico. It works great too! You can add more or less salsa to this recipe depending on your taste preference. If the salsa is watery you may want to pour off some of the excess liquid first)
Fresh Cilantro chopped
Salt and Pepper to taste (I like a lot of pepper!)
Prepare the avocados (peel and discard seed) and put into a large mixing bowl.
Add onion, lime juice, cilantro, and the zest. The zest of 1 lime is plenty but you can certainly put in more if you prefer.
Gently blend with a pastry blender or potato masher. (I like to leave the avocado a little chunky)
Add the salsa and salt and pepper to taste. I do not add salt but most of you will prefer it.
Gently stir it all together and transfer to a serving bowl.
Cover and refrigerate for at least 30 min. Serve within 4 hours to prevent discoloring.
Can be served with tortilla chips, pretzels, veggies etc. Awesome on sandwiches or in dips. Use your imagination!! ENJOY!!
