Salsa guacamole is one of the easiest and healthiest appetizers you could possibly make. I absolutely love plain simple guacamole – avocado, cilantro, garlic, lime, salt and pepper, however sometimes you just want something new. A few years ago, my husband, Alex, added a scoop of jarred salsa to my guacamole and we all went nuts for it. Even kids didn’t find it spicy.
And this is what I’m presenting here to you – avocado + salsa. Serve with chips and/or veggies for your next game day, enjoy on a hot summer day, or even skip dinner one night. Why not?! Healthy fats, complex carbs, you got it!
How to Make Salsa Guacamole
I like to use large Haas avocado from Costco but you can use any. I also love Que Pasa salsa and chips (Kirkland brand is the same) because they are organic, lower in sodium and better for us. But you can use ANY. Any healthy.
Mash avocados with a fork but not too much. I personally love chunks to bite into.
Add cilantro, garlic, salt and pepper. Trust me re: garlic. It was meant for Ukrainian cooking and guacamole.:)
And stir. That’s it! That was easy, right?!Print
- In a medium bowl, mash avocados with a fork leaving some chunks in.
- Add remaining ingredients, stir and serve with chips and/or vegetables.
Storage Instructions: This salsa will be gone in no time but in case, you can refrigerate it in an airtight container for 1 day (its colour won’t change much thanks to salsa).
