Perfect Guacamole In 5 Minutes

Perfect guacamole in 5 minutes is easy with prepared salsa and a few simple, fresh ingredients.

perfect guacamole in 5 minutesWe love guacamole, and I make it several times a week.  After experimenting with myriad recipes, this one has ended up being a favorite.

This recipe uses fresh refrigerated salsa to get the fabulous flavor of onion, garlic, and spices without all the prep. Who wants to chop onions and garlic every time a guac craving strikes?

I’ve tried this recipe using jarred salsa and the results were not the same. Fresh salsa is definitely a must in this recipe.

Garden Fresh Gourmet SalsaI am obsessed with the Garden Fresh Gourmet Salsa found in most produce/refrigerator cases. It has a wonderful fresh flavor that we love, and it makes a delicious guacamole. Note: This salsa has lots of liquid from the tomatoes which I strain or pour off before adding to the guacamole. It also has a hint of sweetness that might be strange at first, but it perfectly complements the saltiness of tortilla chips.

We like very chunky guac, but you can make this as chunky or smooth as you prefer. I taste and adjust seasonings, and usually end up adding quite a bit of salt & garlic salt.

Let me hear from you if you try this! Thanks so much for stopping by. Be blessed, and stay savvy!
