Easiest Guacamole Recipe

I guess this is to be expected, but E is already into everything. The boy finally figures out how to scoot around the house, and his toys are no longer interesting.

The first thing he went for? Dumbbells. Next? Curtain rods that are waiting to be hung and apparently weren’t hidden quite well enough. Finally, my Garmin watch and the outlet into which I had it plugged.

Well… at least he’s still slow.

picoGiven my time constraints these days, I’m all about some easy-peasy recipes. My checklist for a good recipe:

  • Is it worth my time? (some things are worth a little extra effort, most aren’t)
  • Is it healthy? (at least most of the time)
  • Does it have a reasonable ingredient list (ie: not a mile-long list)?
  • Does it look yummy? (duh)

This dish is all of these, well, if you like guacamole.

pico de galloIngredients: two avocados, 12 oz packaged pico de gallo (Trader Joe’s spicy pico worked great), half a lime (very optional)

Directions: Peel and mash avocados; add about 9-10 oz pico. If you have half a lime on hand, squeeze its juices into the mix. Serve immediately, or at least relatively soon.

I brought this out to a friend’s place last weekend with tortilla chips, and I brought it to another friend’s house the weekend before that. Such an easy crowd pleaser!


  • Guac, yay or nay?

  5. Your checklist is pretty much exactly the same as mine… except I don’t have the excuse of having a growing toddler taking up all my time and attention 😛 And very much YES to guacamole. On ALL the things.
