Manic: Need an impressive, but easy appetizer to bring to a party and you don’t have a lot of time.
Managed: Trader Joe’s has an amazing cheat kit for really good guacamole! Every time I make it, folks ask me for the recipe. In addition to the Trader Joe’s kit, I add two more ingredients to give my guac that extra kick that people love.
Here is the recipe, so the next time you need to impress with less, you can try this:
Great Guac Recipe
Stuff You Need:
Trader Joe’s guacamole kit
1/2 package of McCormick Produce Partners Great Guacamole Mix – Spicy
dash of sea salt
1. Chop and mix the avocado, tomato, garlic cloves, onion and jalapeno pepper from the kit. Squeeze the lime juice into the mixture.
2. Next pour in half of the McCormick packet and save the other half for next time. Since the kit comes with a jalapeno pepper, half of the spicy packet is plenty. Also add a dash of sea salt.
3. My other trick is to use a potato masher to get just the right consistency.
4. That’s it! You are done. Add chips of your choice, go to the party and be ready to give out my website if folks ask you for the recipe!
This guac recipe also enhances enchiladas, tacos and those breakfast burritos I showed a couple of days ago. Hungry yet? Make a batch and have a great weekend!
I’ve never seen this before but I am going to put it in my back pocket for later
usage. The kit comes with all the ingredients that I put in my guac minus cilantro. I
could easily pick up a bundle and be on my way. Thanks for the demo.
You are so welcome and it is always good! The food in the kit seems to always be just ripe enough and just right. I’ve had other friends tell me that they add cilantro, too. Maybe I’ll add that next time, too!
Yes…I love it! Great with a splash of lime, too.
