Easy Guacamole

When I was pregnant with our second child, 
I craved guacamole...very unusual for me...



At that time I had never made guacamole before, 
nor have I ever bought it. 

Anyway, one Sunday after Church, I told RN to drop me off at the grocery store, so this pregnant mama could get some of that green stuff! 



I ended up buying several avocados.  
I was determined to make my own!
Now remember, I was pregnant, tired and craving guacamole.
I was NOT going to chop onions and tomatoes...then came the idea of using salsa. 

I mean, salsa has onions and tomatoes, right? 
So here is how I made guacamole over and over again.





If making it for a group, use 1 avocado (=1 cup mashed) for 2 servings/people.
(or 1 avocado for each pregnant lady!)

1 avocado
1 Tbsp of salsa
splash of lime juice
salt to taste

SMASH the avocado with a fork, 




add the salsa, lime and salt.


And there you have it!



I was one happy pregnant lady. 
I could make this special treat in a pinch, when I wanted it, and without letting the guacamole turn brown if left a day in the fridge.
This has been one of my favorite afternoon snacks ever since!

Today I bought 4 avocados for .49 cents each. Go get yours.

Stay Frugal!

Looks yummy! I craved anything with gobbs of cheese on it, so at least your craving was a little healthier!

That sure does look good! I'll be sure to show Jimmy this recipe. He just made guacamole for the first time the other day. It was ok, but I think he should've used some lime juice. It was missing that little "zing"! Thanks for sharing this quick and easy recipe.

Right now I am eating avocados all the time. I love them with just a pinch of salt and crackers. That is what I had for lunch today. I am way past the age of being pg. I just love the 'green stuff' because it is tasty. I have been buying the super nice ones from Sam's club. Got 5 really pretty ones for $4.00 on Saturday. Your price is better. I will have to shop around.

That's exactly how I make guacamole and my friends rave about it. Whenever I get together with one particular friend, I'm always asked to bring the guacamole. Thanks for sharing!
