Guacamole goodness

Guacamole! If you totally forgot you need to actually bring something to that New Year’s Eve gathering or just need something to eat while hiding on the couch, watching Netflix & trying to avoid any social contact at all on New Year’s Eve, guacamole is your friend!

I admit, I went decades of my life declaring my hate for guacamole. I had no idea I was living a lie & I do apologize to the wonderful avocados of the world. (I’ll get around to you later, sweet potato fries.) However, all was forever changed when a friend of a friend brought a bowl of the stuff to a 4th of July get together this summer. I was peer pressured into trying it & it was the best damn stuff I’ve ever eaten. Turns out it’s incredibly easy to make too.


What you need:

  • 2 ripe avocados
  • 1 Serrano pepper
  • Juice from 1 lime
  • 1 pack of Old El Paso guacamole seasoning

Optional:

  • Cilantro (I’m a fan, my friends are not. My desire for cilantro does not outweigh my desire to not hear them complain about cilantro)
  • Diced tomatoes
  • Diced onions

Just add any of these to the finished product if you want.

Scoop out the insides of the avocados & put them in a medium bowl (save the pits for later though). Grab a potato masher or fork & mash up the avocados to desired consistency. Remove the seeds from the Serrano pepper & dice it. Combine the lime juice, seasoning & pepper in the bowl with the avocado & mix it all up. Place the avocado pits back in the mixture to keep everything green & chill for at least 30 mins.  Grab a bag of chips & hide from society. Or share it with friends. Whichever.

Side note: put this on your next BLT instead of mayo. You’re welcome.
