We love Mexican food in our house and avocados are a staple we keep regularly in our house. I could easily fill up on chips, salsa, and guacamole! Homemade guacamole is also the perfect addition to taco bowls, egg dishes, and even as a snack to serve up with veggies. For picky kids or a quick sauce, I have also included my recipe for avocado sauce below. I hope you enjoy these as much as we do!
– 2 ripe Hass avocados
– Juice of 1 lime (~ 3T)
– 1/4 C chopped tomato
– 1T minced onion, fresh
– 1/4 to 1/2 jalapeño, stem and seeds removed*
– 2T chopped cilantro
– 1/2t salt, more to taste
*Adjust jalapeño depending on the spice level you enjoy.
- Mash avocado and lime juice together in a medium bowl.
- Add tomato, onion, jalapeño, cilantro, and salt to bowl.
- Mix together and add more salt if needed.
This next recipe is an alternative to my guacamole. When I am short on time, I make my avocado sauce instead and my 4 year old loves it. That is saying a lot from a picky kiddo!
