Chips and guacamole. It’s the one snack that ALL my girls love to eat.
One of my favorite guacamole recipes is from Alton Brown, but I don’t always have the extra time to make it, so I discovered an easy and delicious way to make guacamole in a very short amount of time. It’s so easy, in fact, that my kids can make it on their own!
It takes less than 5 minutes to make and it’s just as tasty as the “real” stuff.
- 2 ripe avocados, halved, seeded and cubed
- Lime Juice, enough to coat the avocado
- 2 tablespoons Taco Bell Fire Sauce
- ¼ cup of your favorite salsa (I like to use Herdez Salsa Verde, but any salsa will work)
- Chopped tomatoes, to taste
- Chopped jalapeños, to taste
- Place the avocado and lime juice in a large bowl and toss to coat.
- Drain excess lime juice.
- Add the Fire sauce and salsa, stir.
- Using a fork or potato masher mash the avocado mixture to desired consistency. I like mine kind of chunky.
- Add chopped tomatoes and jalapeños.
- Flavors are better if you let the guacamole sit for a 30 minutes to an hour, but it can be eaten right away. (It never makes it to the hour mark in our house.)
You can serve the guacamole with my delicious baked tortilla chips, or use it for your next taco dinner.
Consider making some the next time you make my shrimp tacos for dinner, or when you’re looking for something to snack on when sipping on my pink lemonade margarita.
