I am 95% certain any social invites I had coming my way will go out the window now that my super secret guacamole recipe is officially on the internet and up for grabs. It’s all fun and game nights until your friends know all the deets for the only guacamole recipe you’ll ever need and can cut out the middle(wo)man.
Friends, promise you’ll still have me over even though you can make this guac yourself now? Alright then, here’s the secret: Seasoning salt. And lots of it! Douse your avocados in seasoning salt and lemon juice and just wait for all the friends to roll in. This guac is so good I’ve been making it at least twice a week lately.
Here’s another tip: If your avocados are not quite ripe and you don’t have a potato masher (like moi), after you scoop the avocado out of its shell and into a bowl, use a pizza slicer to cut the avocado into smaller pieces. This makes it much easier to mash!
Also, pictured are plaintain chips since Hell30 forbids real chips. Although these have been a nice alternative to the real thing. They’re so colorful too! I have a feeling I won’t kick these to the curb anytime soon.
Did I mention I only have three days of Whole30 left? Look for a post later this week about all the sweet treats I’m looking forward to making and next week, I’ll share what I thought about Whole30. After I’ve had some distance and a beer or two. And probably also some ice cream. Take that, Whole30!
I hope you had a relaxing, restorative weekend. It was in the 60s all weekend here in DC. Next time that happens, I’m taking this guacamole party to the park!
