Serves 5-7 | Prep Time 15 | Cook Time 0


6 medium or 4 large avocados
¼c chunky salsa (I prefer Pace thick and chunky, but extra points for the Triple Pepper Pace)
1T garlic powder
1T onion powder
1T beau monde
3T lemon juice (can be the stuff in the plastic lemon or fresh squeezed)
dash or two of tabasco (regular is cool, chipotle or habañero is awesome)

Halve the avocados

using the part of the knife blade closest to the handle (and being very careful), put the knife into the pit

twist and remove

Use a spoon to remove the meat from the skin of the avocado, and scoop out into a big bowl

Pour lemon juice over avocado to prevent browning

Go to town on the avocado with a potato masher, but make sure to leave it a bit chunky

Toss in the salsa, seasonings and tabasco and stir, making sure to not stir so hard as to smooth out the chunks

Best served at room temperature, but if you must refrigerate, make sure to press down a layer of plastic wrap directly onto the surface.

This is the easiest guacamole you're ever bound to make, so much so that it feels like cheating. Whenever I make guacamole, I use this recipe, and it impresses every. single. time.
