When it comes to food toppings, I don't think many can make a case for anything that's better than guacamole. It's the magic maker for all things hamburgers, vegetables, sandwiches, and don't even get me started on Chipotle. Guacamole even rivals bacon when it comes to the fairy dust of the food kingdom.
However, and I don't know about you, but despite the fact that guacamole is irresistibly delicious, and healthy for you (yes, fat is healthy), I often choose not to make it because of how tedious a process it can be. You know, dicing up all those tomatoes, jalapeno peppers, red onions, cilantro etc. into itty bitty pieces.
Not only that, but you put all that hard work into making the guac, and then the freaking stuff turns brown and disgusting (yes, even if you add lime juice....I've tried it) a mere 48 hours after storing it in the fridge. Aaaaarrrggghhhhh!
Not anymore. Enter the world's fastest way to make guacamole. I recently learned this from my older brother, and just last week I whipped up an entire batch of guacamole in a matter of three minutes. (For those of you who know how slow and meticulous I move in the kitchen, you can appreciate how revolutionary this method was for me.)
Buy pre-made salsa in the grocery store. This is the step that saves you the eons of vegetable chopping. You'll want the kind that is pretty dry, with a consistency similar to that of pico de gallo. So, you're essentially purchasing a container of pre-chopped guacamole ingredients, sans the avocado obviously.
This is the list of ingredients in my salsa:
- Red Onions
- Green Pepper
- Lime Juice
- Garlic Powder
Yeah, it does take a bit of the "authenticity" out of the equation, but if you're like me and want to save time, do yourself a favor and just pick up a container of this salsa and save all the vegetable chopping.
Pour the salsa into a bowl, and then add the ripened avocados. Mix, match, and stir until you've reached your desired consistency.
Place on desired food, and bask in the rays of human ecstasy as you experience the heights of food deliciousness.
Woah woah woah, can that really be IT? Yep, that's it. Guacamole in three minutes.
Enjoy, and share this with everyone!
