Low-Key Genius Guacamole Hack!
Updated: Jun 14, 2021
This hack will save you lots of time from all the chopping that is involved in guacamole and will allow you to make this ahead of time! OOH YA!
Guacamole is essentially just pico de gallo and mashed avocado, so rather than dicing up several different vegetables, you can easily buy high-quality pico at your local grocery store. Most of the time you can even pick your preferred level of heat!
5 Haas avocados, ripe
1/4 cup of pico de gallo
1 tablespoon of garlic powder
2 teaspoons of kosher salt
1 Lime, juiced
A bunch of fresh cilantro
In a medium bowl, mash together the avocados, lime juice, garlic powder, and salt. Mix in the pico de gallo and stir in a squeeze of fresh lime juice. Taste with a chip to adjust the seasoning to your taste - definitely use a chip to taste test so you can avoid over-salting the guac.
If you're making it in advance, throw 2 of the avocado pits into the bowl and cover with plastic wrap before you put it in the fridge. This will keep your guacamole from turning brown before serving.
Enjoy with chips, tacos, breakfast burritos, or pretty much anything else you can think of!
