I love Mexican food. There’s not much I love more. It being Cinco de Mayo, I figured why not post up some guacamole? I know Cinco de Mayo is more of an American, or Mexican-American holiday than is celebrated in Mexico proper, but any excuse for some tacos, chips & dip, and a cold beer or a margarita.
This recipe is probably the single easiest recipe for guacamole you’ll see. It uses pre-made salsa (preferably fresh) (Recipe for DELICIOUS SALSA!) and avocados, and that’s about it. If you can cut open an avocado and open a jar, you can make guac.
Friends who have my guacamole recipe end up putting me in charge of guac at summer gatherings, which is more than fine with me since it takes me less than 15 minutes to whip up a batch!
Here’s a tip — when you’re seasoning your guacamole, keep in mind what you will be serving it with. Guac that is going to go with tortilla chips won’t need as much salt in the recipe as guac that’s going to go with grilled chicken or something else that isn’t as salty as your corn chips of choice.
