Does your household celebrate taco Tuesday? Turkey tacos and guacamole is a constant in our house. One of my biggest cravings that I had when pregnant with Willow was avocados. It’s no wonder that she also loves them! As a Mom, I really appreciate finding easy recipes that I know the whole family can enjoy. I snagged this 5 minute recipe from one of my best girl friends, India and it has remained a favorite for the last several years. You can really make it two ways, one for your children to enjoy and one with a kick of jalapeños that really gives it a spicy kick.
Gather your ingredients:
4 Ripe Avocados (press them gently, they should give a little)
1/4 red onion, finely chopped
1/2 vine tomato, finely chopped
- Cut Avocados in half, remove the pit. Score the inside of the avocado with a knife and scoop out the flesh with a spoon into a bowl. I mash the avocado just a bit, as I really like it stay chunky.
- Add chopped onion and tomatoes, mash again to mix.
- Squeeze half a lemon to add juice to guacamole and salt to taste. Mash again to mix.
- Serve immediately with your favorite chips, raw vegetables, or as a topping to your tacos! Enjoy!
*To make the spicy adult version, I add a 1/4 of a fresh, chopped jalapeño to step 2.
