Posts Tagged ‘avacado’



With a very big game coming up this weekend and lots of people getting together to eat tons of snacks and root on their favorite team, I thought it would be a good time to share with you one of my all time favorite snacks.

Shhhh, don’t tell…this recipe is super easy! 

This is one of the things that I get asked very often to bring to gatherings. When I was still working, my work friends would practically beg me to bring this in. I even had people bring me the avacados so I could make the dip for everyone. We make this very often to just snack on in our house and it makes an apperance at many family gatherings throughout the year.  My kids both love this so much and I fed it to them both as babies as a snack and they would eat a whole ‘little’ bowl right off the spoon!

I also saw that Whole Foods has organic avacados on sale today, for one day only! So run on out and get some and make this delicious snack for your game day gatherings, or just cause you want a yummy treat!

2 ripe avacados
1/4 teaspoon salt or to taste
1/8 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper or to taste
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
1 heaping tablespoon fresh salsa, home made or the kind you find in the cooler section or your grocery store (I use Rojo’s brand Fresh Cut medium salsa)

Slice avacados open and remove the pit. Scoop out the flesh of the avacado into a small mixing bowl and slightly mash with a fork. Add the salt, pepper, garlic powder and fresh salsa and stir. Add more salt, pepper and garlic powder to fit your taste. Serve with tortilla chips. Enjoy!

This recipe can easily be doubled or tripled for parties.
