Chips and guacamole. It’s the one snack that ALL my kids 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! (You can also easily make your own baked tortilla chips!)
This guac recipe takes less than 5 minutes to make and it’s just as tasty as the “real” stuff. Plus you can customize the recipe however you see fit. I like mine super spicy, but most of my kids don’t.
Quick & Easy Chunky Guacamole
- 2 ripe avocados, halved, seeded and cubed
- Lime Juice, enough to coat the avocado
- 1/4 cup of your favorite chunky salsa or preferred flavor of canned Rotel Diced Tomatoes & Green Chilies, liquid drained
- salt & pepper, to taste
- Chopped jalapenos, (optional)
- 2 tablespoons favorite hot sauce (optional)
- Place the avocado and lime juice in a large bowl and toss to coat.
- Add the hot sauce and salsa/Rotel, stir.
- Using a fork or potato masher mash the avocado mixture to desired consistency. We like it chunky.
- Season with salt and pepper and add jalapenos. Mix carefully.
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.)
