Who is ready for a fiesta!? 

I have to confess, I planned to have a recipe for Chicken Parmesan today, however it was over 90 degress yesterday, and I couldn’t bear to turn on my oven and make a heavy dish like that.

So instead, you get a fast and easy guacamole!

Want to know the secret to the easiet guacamole you will ever make?

Salsa.  That is right!  Just plain old salsa.  This is more of a ‘pico de gallo’ type salsa, and I think that is really important.  I find this in the produce section of my grocery store, and it is kept refridgerated. 

It is full of chopped tomatoes, red onions, and peppers.  Normal jarred salsa is very ‘saucy’ and this is more chunky.  Try to find it in your store!

Cut your avocados like I’ve shown above.  Slice them in the peel in one direction, then the other, and scoop out the flesh with a spoon.

Just add some salsa to your chopped avocado, spritz a little lime juice and sprinkle in some salt and you have a delicious and fast gaucamole!

Fast and Easy Guacamole

makes about 2 1/2 cups


  • 3 ripe avocados
  • 1/2 cup pico de gallo type salsa
  • juice of 1/2 a lime
  • 1/4 tsp salt


  1. Cut avocados in half.  Twist to remove one half from the pit.  Remove the pit from the other half.  Leaving the peel on, slice avocados in one direction, and turn and slice in the other direction.  Use a spoon to scoop the flesh into a large bowl.
  2. If you prefer very smooth guacamole, mash the avocados before adding other ingredients.  If you prefer chunky guacamole, dd remaining ingredients and mix well. The avocados will slightly mash, but you will be left with larger chunks as well.
  3. Serve with tortilla chips.
