Guacamole is magic.
Simple ingredients, quick prep, and super versatile. Depending on where you put it, it’s a dip, a spread or main ingredient.
That doesn’t mean the recipe can’t be abused – I saw a celebrity chef on PBS once take 18 minutes to create “classic guacamole” and it involved five different roasted vegetables and sweet peas.
More importantly, though, the recipe can be super simplified.
I have a basic recipe (which requires six ingredients and takes 5 minutes) and this one, which requires three items and takes less than 60 seconds.
Super Quick Guacamole
Also called "Cheater's Guac" at SuzerSpace
- 1 Medium to Large Avocado Ripe
- 3 teaspoons Chunky Style Tomato Salsa
- 1 splash Lime Juice
Remove the pit from the avocado, and scoop flesh from the peel.
In a bowl, add the salsa to the avocado. Use a fork to smash.
When close to the desired consistency, add the splash of lime juice and stir to combine
Top guacamole tip: Only make what you can consume in one sitting. Sure, there are a million tricks for keeping it from turning brown, but it is really best served fresh.
